Enigmatically pushing their metal machines, men and women advance in a convoy, as proud warriors. They come and go, they march to the simple music of their presence, with the spirit and memory of the objects. A woman drags dozens of drums, men push a truck along the road, a body with its head wrapped in felt waves at an absent crowd, a man wears a hat made of clay, here and there horns blare… A procession at once peaceful and disquieting.
