le Beau Manège – Crazy Carousel in Toulouse


As merry-go-rounds go this one is quite special. Dreamt up by La Machine, a French production company comprising of artists, designers and technicians, it features a variety of mechanical fish and insects, including a fly that takes off into the air.


La Machine, who are based in Nantes, are famous for La Princesse, a giant mechanical spider and more recently Le Carrousel du Monde Marins, a tremendous 25 metre high carousel featuring a variety of marine life to ride on including squid, crabs and manta ray.


Le Beau Manège is situated in Jardin Raymond VI close to Les Abattoirs, Toulouse’s contemporary art gallery.
