"LONG MA" CELEBRATES FRANCE-CHINA 50
From 17 to 19 october 2014, at the Olympic site in Beijing, the public will discover a totally original show developed and directed by the Company La Machine, whose workshops are based in Nantes.To celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China, François Delarozière and his team have created a show symbolizing Franco-Chinese friendship. The dragon horse LONG MA was a natural choice. It draws on the symbols of China and its myths and reflects the ancient history of China, but also embodies modern China, as a feat of engineering and craftsmanship.
Like the Elephant, which has become one of the symbols of Nantes, the dragon horse could become an iconic movable fixture in Beijing. Once the show is over, this majestic machine will become a permanent attraction, capable of carrying the public on its back.
