> Giant Match Association

The Giant Match Puppets are the work of the Giant Match Association. The Association was created in 2010 as a street theatre organisation performing with 33 giant puppets, masks and characters made from recycled materials. The Giant Match Association aims to make arts and culture more accessible to the general public, create social cohesion and enliven public spaces.


Initiated in the context of the 2010 Soccer World Cup, the original project involved over one hundred South African actors, musicians, dancers, puppeteers, visual artists and craftsmen from various communities in Gauteng as well as artists from Les Grandes Personnes.
