BERLIN - OCTOBER 03: Two giant marionettes, who had been walked by performers from the French street theatre company Royal de Luxe to each other from east and west Berlin, are united at the Brandenburg Gate at the conclusion of their performance on October 3, 2009 in Berlin, Germany. Royal de Luxe walked the two marionettes through Berlin to illustrate the Cold War-era division of the city and the peaceful revolution of 1989 not as a political story but as a poetic fairytale. The performance is happening on German Unity Day but also coincides with the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
