Lepage & Wagner: the “machine” by Scène Ethique
A platform of movable planks
The Machine is a 45-ton platform made of two towers that support the 60-foot central shaft. Using cylinder hydraulics, the towers allow the translation and rotation of the shaft. The platform also has 24 movable planks attached to it that are designed to transform into a staircase and wall in which computer-generated images are projected. In addition, thanks to hydraulics, automation and technicians, The Machine can transform into different configurations.
An additional stage
A proscenium completes the set. It is raked and serves as a continuum of the planks and main stage.
