Human Clock or the monumental time in Nantes

Start
 
For the 2019 edition of Voyage à Nantes, from July 6 to July 1er September, the company Xtnt, specialized in performing & visual arts, will present an amazing work, Human Clock, a monumental human half-man half-machine clock. A collaboratively thought-out work, Human Clock reinvents itself in collaboration with a territory, audiences and artists to create new urban rituals.
 
Aa Xtnt company is dedicated to theatrical action in situ. Co-directed by Antonia Taddei, playwright, and Ludovic Nobileau, director, she is a specialist in multidisciplinary creations, bringing together for her different proposals the best skills to contribute to the participatory reinvention of the city. Large-scale collective performances, participatory films, radio walks, human clock or offbeat urban sports...: so many forms for a creative reappropriation of public space by citizens.
 
Also, for the 2019 edition of Trip to NantesXtnt creates a human clock, a monumental work half-man half-machine that strikes the hours in the heart of the city. To create this hybrid work, Xtnt proposed to the sculptor Malachi Farrella specialist in the creation of automaton works combining high technology with societal criticism and outstanding performance. Constantin Leuto collaborate. Beating, 24/7 in the heart of the city, Human Clock revives the tradition of clocks as works of art combining technical and artistic prowess for the public space.
 
From the balcony of a building on the Place Graslin - opposite the Nantes Opera - Constantin Leu will beat strong, weak, soft, sublime times... at regular and irregular hours, transcending everyday life. When the performer is absent, sleeping, walking, unemployed, dreaming... the pulse of Human Clock will be beaten by the COUCOU machine created by Malachi Farell.
The Critic and Art Historian Catherine Francblin said of him:  "It is this state of overheating of a society at a given moment generally considered as a moment of crisis that Malachi Farrell succeeds in translating in his works, vast sound and animated devices, situated halfway between an expanding form of sculpture (like Jason Rhoades) and a specifically urban form of expression (like street theatre). »

 
From Saturday 6 July - Place Graslin, Nantes
