see if you are in touch with my hair and his own wheelchair stunt. company exile following in polling into the footsteps on the island. the dutch city of was overrun by giants last weekend now they were part of a production by the french street theatre group royal de luxe the event was a three day interactive experience involving a pub a girl in search of her father or participants on the streets helped her in her search in a way of course were also on hand for the action and to see if the story had a happy ending. a little looking for half father. he's not really hard to miss standing and eleven meters tall and wearing a diving suit. still she wanders through the streets. i
think it's magic yes yes it's a great mystery and that's it show huge it's amazing how yeah how they get the mold has been sitting out in syria listening i love to see it it makes me feel like a little child again i think it's really a fairy tale. why is she looking for her. and what does that don't have to do with us. only that morning at eight o'clock the father was to sleep with a busy day ahead. as one of europe's capitals of culture this year they were in and invited their royalty like street theater troupe to come and perform claudia will grace the producer she has to make sure everything goes off smoothly local volunteer stewards will help keep the public safe. crew in the costumes half of them are from rolls or lox and half of the local people has been staying over the last two weeks to learn how to make that movement and then up in the crane you'll
see there are more people manipulating their heads but you know what you forget you get lost in them as giants i mean you. know. the extras are called lilliputians drop by the dolls. they wake up the giant and get ready. he's made a board and weighs close to three times he's suspended from a huge crane with cables and machinery and lots of heating and the fusion is will make him look like a man. was found by its artistic directors on new coke or in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine in france. is giants have since traveled the world. in two thousand and nine they were in berlin to celebrate the anniversary. german reunification. considered good if you could get us through.
the difficulty for a show such as the giant saga is to create scenarios that reflect the history of the city where it's playing. in a word and that was not so hard for the people in this region have always had to battle the north sea and keep the water at bay so cuckoo concocted a story in which a giant comes to help them one hundred fifty thousand humans came to watch the story unfold as the giant divers don't look for him accompanied by her playful puppy. philippines whose have their work cut out for them two teams take turns jumping off a platform clinging to cables to raise the feet of the giant maintains a speed of one kilometer per hour. others have to move.
the people remove the feet they have to make sure that they don't jump into the audience because it's quite a problem sometimes because the audience is quite close and you don't want to knock people over something like that so it's very challenging to make sure that you jump straight forward. and that you don't run into people. at midday the girl and the dog take a rest in front of the older who for the famous leaning tower of labor are. there don't lose their people and that's extraordinary thing about roads lots that's why people love them because they stop being poppet they stop being marionette and you just look at the music at their face you look at their emotions and their movements you watch and take in their story. the family drama
enthralls the townspeople and does to them by come on to the evening. finally a huge happy ending father and daughter of the you know he says. the troops next adventure will be in the poll in october. so you did have a happy ending ari turning now to a brief look at other stories making headlines on the cultural scene including a new cafe in london dedicated to the doc sent but first a study and a broken out in song last week and more on the reason why at the top of today's express. one super sized choir gathered in the estonian capital tallinn on sunday they same for exactly one hundred minutes nonstop to celebrate one hundred years of the estonian republic famous singers actors and choirs joined in singing traditional
folk songs and sweden's crown princess victoria and her husband prince daniel also attended the event the estonian song festival dates back to one thousand sixty nine every five years thousands gathered to sing together in one of the world's marja just amateur choral events. at the end you will first address a new order to our going to has drawn to a close in northern portugal each year we honored a customer hosts the colorful three day festival one of its highlights is the more do me a parade over six hundred thirty women showcase of the traditional costumes of the region and where great quantities of gold many of the pieces are actually heirlooms dating back centuries and are only shown in public on this day. in the cafe designed especially for dogs. dogs opened in london on sunday
for a competent nose and the back of popcorn were handed out to the canine visitors but that had to pay an entry fee. the one they can control is he was a runaway success the dog's wrapping up of the treats all the attention the organizers had previously hoped pompom cafe's for. french bulldogs. moving on now to an inspirational story about a young man who knows what it's like to overcome obstacles at the age of nineteen a car accident cost bjorn patrick meyer a part of his leg but that didn't stop him from pursuing sports with a passion now at thirty three meyer is a wheelchair skater athlete competing in events all over europe we caught up with him at a skate park and how mark. overcoming limitations starts in the mind.
your own patrick meyer is one of germany's leading wheelchair skaters but today he's struggling to reach the top of the half pike. i can't get as high as i want to . wheelchair skating is a relatively new discipline it began at the start of the millennium in the us the thirty three year old has been a serious wheelchair skater for four years and is passionate about the sport skating skating is a very free thing you don't go by rules but my feeling is. it's true to life it's fun and liberating on the fly. that some things young patrick particularly treasures at the age of nineteen he was involved in a serious car accident he spent months in a coma his right leg was amputated above the knee but he refused to give up watching videos of wheelchair skaters inspired him as he fought to rebuild his life
. does absolutely does and when i saw the first video i was still in the hospital. i knew that walking and running wouldn't be possible anymore but us and then i thought this is the goal i can pursue i want to do this but half of. patrick meyer competes regularly in tournaments for wheelchair motocross known as w.c. m.x. . two years ago he came in sixth at the world championships in texas points are awarded for each trip according to the level of difficulty and the standard of performance. just like regular skateboarding wheelchair skating is not without its risks while. doing this or vic sure it hurts a bit it always hurts when you fall but you know immediately what mistakes you made so you don't say annoyed for a long fight the best thing to do is get right back up and carry on which is what
i'd better do now. out of my hands and. once a month patrick meyer gives courses in wheelchair skating even those who don't want to enter competitive sport find the wheelchair training helps increase their independence since it's a form of self determination because it's what makes a real difference if you can get up onto a sidewalk yourself without help from others. that's something that skating does for you it gives you confidence for you everybody needs to be able to move around movement is everything. well. in the lead up to a tournament year and patrick meyer is out on the halfpipe every day he trains for up to six hours a day skating is clearly much more than a hobby for him. to skate. but if i didn't have skating i wouldn't be able to get out of bed so it inspires me to keep going. and that doesn't only apply to skating but also two other day to day problems i have to face i take the same approach
there as in skating i might not make it tomorrow but eventually i'll get there. and eventually he makes it to the top of the half pipe. the singer and songwriter can't frank is actually known for melancholy slow beats tunes of blood on her latest album called bad behavior she stands up the tempo notch and has created music that fits more into the pop and dance a genre well frank is all strongly and but she relocated to berlin about fourteen years ago and our next report she tells us about the change she's made in her musical direction. frankie first made a name for herself with melancholy songs in the manner of folk music now she's reengineered herself. was asked. to respond.
to her latest album is more pop than folk with electronic elements and much more energy. she recently performed in the german city of you know. it's i've seen a shift folk music xanga shading i've written a lot of folk music and i didn't want to repeat myself and it makes no sense for an artist to bring out yet another record of mournful ballots with a guitar accompaniment now want to be direct speak my mind and have fun. and it's. made me very danceable but it's also a critical political song against racism and homophobia. it's.
living here in germany you played some part in cat frankie reinventing yourself. and i come from sydney and australia is the life is good. people don't go out and demonstrate as well and often doesn't sophie it was in berlin that i encountered protests i lived in courts back to six years old in that neighborhood i felt there was a demo just about every weekend. i was. she came to berlin for a year abroad in two thousand and four rent was cheap and people were refreshingly different she got her first recording contract here when she went home to sydney she says she found a conservative in dowdy. mrs
cat frankie version one sad poetic upbeat gloomy her music is rarely political but always his presence. it did she feel she had to turn to pot to awaken her inner rebel. discerns. i really do wish i were a total rebel unfortunately i'm not. i am a bit defiant and i have strong opinions. that i'm not a rebel i know it's sad but i am trying. i was was a. camp frank you know works with loops songs and fragments of song she combines and layers them. sick sick sick sick sick
sick sick this. these. kids. like this with only her voice. she of times does sound like the ballad singers of your. email the end broaching dread but her album bad behavior wants more it's not an invitation to pass it to you and resignation there's too much driving energy for that. there's all of us in this bit wanting it and we all know we're living in comic at a time like many people though it's their opinions that very high volume on the internet there's lots of outrage perhaps we need to see a bit more action i. see on t.v. . talking about
action the energy proved infectious and you know the audience abandoned their seats and started to jump around. frankie has come a long way. when thinking about our carbon footprint you probably don't consider that the food you eat also contributes greatly to it in fact by some estimates food production including growing farming processing transporting cooking and so on accounts for at least one fifth of global carbon emissions so how can we reduce our so called food print one company cafeteria in sweden has an interesting idea.
from a hearty meal to deep fried foods to a healthy salad most campaigns offer a range of dishes but here in golf and or every meal comes with information on its carbon footprint head chef says it's more appetising than it might sound here and we don't change the muscle we try to when we were by our meat try to buy meat in the food it makes butter for a minute like. beef and more fish the more she can and. the production of food generates a considerable amount of c o two. bring those on advises canteens in restaurants on how to make their menu more climate friendly. but is that you should be able to find troubling information where you find food basically and to make a dent in the climate so i missions across europe for the wild. just opting for
more fruit and vegetables and occasionally forgoing meat can help but does the extra information really change diners eating habits i usually take they save me a dish given to me said dish only formation can help me. help me to shoot. for something basically. i tend to go for the vegetarian option anyway and knowing that it's better for the environment as well means it makes sense to choose that more off as i take my notes or seeing this it will probably give me remind me one more time. it's about the numbers and so sometimes he would effect. so these small reminders could help consumers lean towards a healthier and more climate friendly choice. and finally it's time to take a trip and today we're going to explore the italian island of elba thanks to a viewer request from guatemala daniel wrote in to us wanting to know more about
this part of the tuscan archipelago now it's no secret that italians are generally proud of their country but the people around this region love to talk about their traditions and heritage. summertime is high season for tourism on the island but that didn't stop us from packing our bags and exploring the sights. the ferry to alba takes an hour. time enough to look forward to the beautiful beaches and crystal clear water. when you stroll through capital port affair iow you will find plenty to remind you that the island's most famous resident was napoleon bonaparte. to parody and lived in exile in the me for ten months in eight hundred fourteen and eight hundred fifteen. a group of local history enthusiastic liked to dress up in the polling. for special occasions. crowds that the former
french m for a change this island for his exile. ruler of the tiny principality napoleon had ten thousand subjects and an army of one thousand men. in the few months that he was here and managed to give the capital city porto for io an administrative structure of the island as his little empire. turned porter for io into a miniature. life here. in eight hundred fifteen napoleon return to france and trying to reestablish himself that ended at waterloo. today most visitors to the island of vacationers elba has large beaches but also many small coves accessible only by boat or long hikes the island has about two hundred beaches no two of them alike if you are
lucky you might find one just feel so. if you arrive after a long hike you have the feeling of having truly accomplished something. like climbing a mountain peak but of course it's very nice in a canoe or on a ship. if you're looking for a comfortable but nevertheless thrilling way to reach the top of elvis' highest mountains take the cable car in mary qana in the northwest of the island in just twenty minutes it will take you to the peak of money take up on e one thousand nine hundred meters the highest point on. it has a view over the entire twenty seven kilometer long island. from here you can see the italian mainland it to rain or coast with. the town closest to. where the ferry set off for puerto rico i continue on from here. from
there you can see corsica. marciano marina a perfume are in the harbor town has made it his goal to capture the sense of the island with the perfect. several shops on ellis sell it as a souvenir tourists like the idea that they're taking a bit of the sea back home with them and not just because of its color. sense we use only plants from the mediterranean region like curry plant. also known as madonna or strawberry tree of rosemarie lavender and many other indigenous plants but. when we want to wear the scent of the sea there was the doctor bill and seaweed and then of course the sea breeze that transports the salty scent.
the town of cap only very on the south of the island is great for an evening stroll . ciano cassini has operated his restaurant here for more than forty is. he specializes in fish and seafood. surprising on an island. there's sort of a little bit of everything you find here is a traditional mine and you keeps its feet firmly on the ground but mostly i bake fish in the oven or barbecue it that's what people line. up to the heat of a summer day the cool evening hours are a pleasure on elba. and you can count on the sun shining again and again throughout the high season in july and august. and with that it is time to say goodbye but before we go i want to let you in on
