From Monteverdi to Brahms, by way of the major classics, Radio Vinci Park revisits the disquieting strangeness of the underground parking lot, the place of all fantasies tied to our contemporary infernos, where a motormachian ritual between the choreographer François Chaignaud, the motorcycle stuntman Cyril Bourny, and the harpsichordist Marie-Pierre Brébant unfolds — three skills involving three different body/machine relationships. Somewhere between taming act, courtship dance, kidnapping, duel and attack…this ritual gradually transforms the parking lot into an arena.
