DUNDU, the giant illuminated puppet, a size of 5 meter was the special guest of the evening at the
Caprice Diamond Palace!
The DUNDU name meaning “friendly” comes from the German Du und Du expression, which stands for You and You. DUNDU was strolling down from one of Budapest’s most spectacular boulevard called Andrássy and led its way into the heart of Budapest to reach its final appearance awaiting for its arrival to the newly open
Caprice Diamond Palace – the Diamondville in Budapest!
The 5 member team have managed to make a mechanical mannequin which combines enormous size and imposing appearance with natural charm and grace, well indeed, that was DUNDU this evening in Budapest. DUNDU was also escorted on the way by Timea Vajna – co-owner of the Caprice Diamond Palace.
Many people locals and foreigners just couldn’t stand still and taken photos of the walking DUNDU. The rolling DUNDU has created a quite unique atmosphere and the audience sitting outside restaurants and bars, threw away the fork and knife just to grab the camera, truly captivated his audience. This performance really showed a whole new dimension of Puppet Theater. The 5 member team have managed to make a mechanical mannequin which combines enormous size and imposing appearance with natural charm and grace, well indeed, that was DUNDU this evening in Budapest. The puppet players steered and handled the puppet simultaneously to make you believe he is a live man!
The glittering diamonds in the evening light very soon attracted the attention of the folks passing by. as well.
Most probably not on my own by saying the Caprice Dimond Palace really stands for its name in capital letters PALACE!
More to the officially opening update on the palace soon follows. Until then take a look at DUNDU rolling on the Streets of Budapest.
