A foreign company's performance of larger-than-life, helium-filled, sea animal balloons fighting to the death.

The French company's performance was hard to fully decipher as there was only the "dramatic" background music to accompany a slew of over-sized balloons being pulled around the Paragon Mall courtyard. The puzzled audience was left to interpret why two extremely large fish were fighting with a snake which seemingly arrived on the skytrain's (BTS) cross-town blue line.

An extremely large octopus, and presumable friend of the fish, deals the final blow to the sinister snake.

No one seemed to understand what was happening but judging by the number of camera phones held steadily in the air, it seems everyone enjoyed the show. More to come with a second set of characters, tomorrow.
