The Guardian of the Temple shows a monumental machine dedicated to the city of Toulouse which will reinterpret, alongside a giant spider, the myth of Ariane.
This show running from 1 to 4 November 2018 in the streets of Toulouse, a veritable natural labyrinth, is an introduction to the installation of the cultural and touristic equipment of La Halle de La Machine in the district of Montaudran around the historic runway of the air postal service now known as La Piste des Géants (the Runway of the Giants).
A new myth
The Guardian of the Temple, is about taking over the story of the Minotaur, to reinvent its codes and content, and provide a new myth to be shared. The archaeological digs of 1993 at Place Esquirol revealed the foundations of the ancient Capitole temple of Toulouse.
The archaeologists made an important discovery there: a fragment of writing in the Etruscan language, engraved on a stone in the foundations. After 25 years of research to find out its meaning, the researchers were able to decipher what appears to be a prophecy given by an eminent Etruscan sibyl.
