La Machine

At the heart of La Machine’s artistic approach, movement is interpreted as a language, a source of emotion. Through each of their living architectures, you can dream the cities of tomorrow and transforming the way you look at your own ones.

Born in 1999 from the collaboration of artists, technicians and decorators around the construction of atypical show objects, La Machine is a street theater company directed by François Delarozière. They’re now developing numerous projects both in the field of urban planning than that of the street show, as in the case of Le Gardien du Temple, in Toulouse, based on certain symbolic elements of the city’s history and appealed to the values and a common imagination peculiar to the metropolis of Occitanie — Astérion, the giant Minotaur, combines the power of the animal with the sensitivity of man.
