TRANSPORTS EXCEPTIONNELS
Exceptional Transport

Is it a child’s fantasy? Is it the idea of finding yourself, after all these years, with your childhood toy crane?

By its sheer size, the machine creates tension with the dancer’s body. It’s also an unexpected encounter, a double act between iron and flesh. I use the arm of the mechanical digger for its functionality and dynamic, but also like a human arm which takes, pushes away, or gently coaxes! The machine’s rotation is a broad movement, spectacular, but it can also be reminiscent of a merry-go-round.
The digging device, whose function is to scrape, drill, transport and tip out, offers a poetic extension: a hand which carries, elevates, and protects. If I sometimes imagine the machine like a rough and imperfect human being – in the image of Boris KARLOFF in Frankenstein – I equally attempt to touch on the marvellous, the giddy dream of Beauty and the Beast. A machine which, in its power, elegance and beauty, can just as easily evoke the tasks of Hercules, as the industrial world painted by Fernand LÉGER.
The mechanical digger and the dancer? An operatic beginning; a quasi-universal, lyrical and dreamlike song which could make us think of the amorous ode from a Romeo for his Juliette.
