LA HALLE DE LA MACHINE
La Halle de La Machine, designed by the architect Patrick Arotcharen, will open its doors to the public on 9 November 2018 one the Giant’s runaway in the Montaudran district in Toulouse and bring life to the stable of street show machines, designed and manufactured by François Delaroziere and the teams at La Compagnie La Machine.
This place was designed as an open laboratory for the creations of La Compagnie. These machines, from the smallest that can be held in the hand to the largest which can weigh
several tonnes, will be housed in La Halle de La Machine while waiting to go and play throughout the world. On site, a team of actors – Veritable Machinists – will bring them to life in front of the public, telling tales and legends of these extraordinary machines, against a backdrop of scenes that are constantly renewed.
A lively place of discussion and debate, La Halle de La Machine is designed as an invitation to a journey to meet these unusual and poetic objects, that come straight from the construction workshop in Nantes. It will house a new singular and monumental creature, the Minotaur, whose first appearance is expected in Toulouse from 1 to 4 November during the show The Guardian of the Temple. Following the show, The Guardian of the Temple will set itself up in La Halle de La Machine and will be able to take fifty people on board for an extraordinary voyage on the old air postal service runway and in the Montaudran district. La Halle de La Machine is also intended to be an area for creation where artists' residencies will enable new artistic proposals to be presented. This is an opportunity for La Compagnie La Machine to trial unreleased productions of future shows before the public.
A cultural programme, a bar-restaurant, a shop and areas for meetings with the public will all be possible points of entry for those who would like to discover La Halle de La Machine and its occupants made of wood and steel.
