Downtown Wellington and the Revolt of the Mannequins

Downtown Wellington and the Revolt of the Mannequins

The French street theatre company Royale de Luxe brought these mannequins to various shop windows of downtown Wellington. The stories unfolded daily - with differing scenes for each shop window over ten days. Unfortunately I just caught the last day of it, and show them here on my blog.
If you wish to see all my photos taken of the mannequins, click the "Revolt" label at the bottom of this post...

Some other "downtown"scenes precede the "revolt"...
