The machine

An algorithm takes over an iconic Arcade terminal to propose choreographies to reproduce. This immersive terminal is an invitation to discover classical, post-modern and contemporary dances. And to dance!

A creative and playful object, THE MACHINE allows everyone to discover contemporary dance and choreographic culture, through short extracts of works by famous choreographers of the 20th and 21st centuries. It contains 14 extracts of choreographic works by 14 different choreographers. THE MACHINE is also an interactive exhibition (panels and magnets) around the discovery of Laban kinetography. Because discovering dance is also and above all seeing it, THE MACHINE includes a participative dance performance choreographed by Valeria Giuga, set to text by Anne-James Chaton and music by Andy Moor. In this project, Valeria Giuga is associated with her collaborator Lise Daynac, the visual artist Claire Pollet, the sound poet Anne-James Chaton and the musicians Andy Moor and Florent Mery.
