Stunning Robotic Creatures in the Streets of Toulouse by La Machine

La Machine is a street theatre company founded in 1999 and led by François Delarozière. It came about thanks to artists, technicians and theatre designers working together for the construction of unusual theatre objects. The work that we develop in public spaces relates, in the first instance, to theatre, urban planning and architecture.

Today, La Machine develops many projects in the field of urban development – Les Machines de l’Île in Nantes, Les Animaux de la place in La Roche sur Yon, Le Manège Carré Sénart… – as well as for street theatre – Long Ma Jing Shen, Les Mécaniques Savantes, La Symphonie Mécanique, L’Expédition Végétale, Le Dîner des Petites Mécaniques…

The company, led by François Delarozière, came about thanks to artists, technicians and theatre designers working together for the construction of unusual theatre objects. To bring its creations to life, La Machine has set up two workshops, one in Nantes and one in Tournefeuille. They are home of many different trades and crafts from theatre and the arts, to industry and advanced technology. People and their skills are the very essence of the creative process.
