Nantes: Les Machines de l'ile & Royal Deluxe: XXl amazement!
I visited Nantes again for 24 hrs last week, and it still is one of my favorite spots in Brittany.
But this time I discovered Les Machines de l'Ile and was in complete awe!
Take a look at this:
François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice are actively involved in the renewal of street theatre and urban performances in Europe. They have been exploring machinery and objects in movement for fifteen years. They chose Nantes to be the home of their XXL creations: in Nantes you could wake up one day and not be able to reach work because a Giant lady tall as building has just landed in the middle of the street and is taking a stroll around the city... The elephant that you see above showered me in water if you want to know!... needless to say my kids rejoiced ;-) Nantes being first on the list of "les villes ou il fait bon vivre" was a great spot for the Machines to land, but they are now traveling the globe also: Japan, Mexico ...
