The AdS4/Chern-Simons theory duality, recently conjectured by Aharony, Bergman, Jafferis and Maldacena, provides not only a new testing ground for the gauge theory/gravity correspondence, but also a possible way to access M-theoretic degrees of freedom. In this talk, I shall discuss some of our recent results on the open string sector of the type IIA string theory in AdS4xCP3, with emphasis on D-branes and giant gravitons in particular. Specifically, I shall focus on the so-called “dual” giant, a D2-brane extended on an S2 in AdS4, its spectrum of small fluctuations and open strings attached to it.
