That Theatre du Soleil's performance was created in 1976, after a year and a half of rehearsals and improvised research.
Ariane had asked me a utopian space, in other words a set without any references.
It was of rounded shapes, bathed with coppery lights, thanks to a amber coloured ceiling and composed of four circus alternately occupied by actors or spectators, along the representation.
Like the model’s image that had been sculpted out of a pile of sand, the implementation of the space was made with two bulldozers (the second one was operated by Antonio Ferreira) allowing me, after a driving apprenticeship, to reproduce the hand gestures on the right scale.
That work had been a herculean task !
Both of us had to move around the volume of 700 trucks of earth, coming from - just for the record - the excavated materials of the Pompidou Museum being built.
