Francois Delaroziere

Francois Delaroziere is the artistic director of La Machine, a French theater company that creates living architectures that use movement as a language and source of emotion. Radio France says, “[Delaroziere] creates a world both real and dreamlike which invades cities for beautiful, moving and crazy celebrations.” Recent creations include a 37-ton mechanical spider for the show “Les Mecaniques Savantes” and the 35-foot tall mechanical elephant featured in 2005's "The Sultan's Elephant" at the edge of the River Loire.

In conversation with Elisabeth Hayes, Executive Director of FACE (The French American Cultural Exchange).

With support from Arts Engine, the University Musical Society (UMS) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD).

Unless otherwise noted, all programs take place on Thursdays at 5:10 pm at the historic Michigan Theater, located at 603 E. Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor, and are free of charge and open to the public.
