Long Ma, the show

On 16 and 17 April, the teams of the Halle de La Machine and the Compagnie La Machine invite you to experience two exceptional days during which the Piste des Géants becomes a huge stage for a great show. Inspired by a Chinese myth, an epic wind will blow around the Halle de La Machine.

The goddess Nuwa*, creator of humanity, is worried about the people she has shaped. Due to the disruption of the forces of nature, a hole has formed in the sky, opening a passage for creatures from other worlds. Nuwa sends his emissary, Long Ma, to close the hole in the sky, but the Dragon Horse will have to foil the traps of the giant spider.

Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 April 2022
2 days of entertainment – 3 stages per day
late morning, mid afternoon and early evening.
Giant’s Track – Free

PRATIcal information

The show will take place over two days. There will be 3 stages per day. One in the late morning, one in the afternoon and one in the early evening. We are deliberately not communicating the exact times of the scenes. During the day, don’t hesitate to take your time and take advantage of your visit to the Piste des Géants to discover the interior of the Halle de La Machine or to eat at the Minotaure Café. The show takes place outdoors and is free of charge. Each scene is different but they can be seen independently without any problem of understanding. The show will be without words.


During the show days, we advise you to avoid the car and to use soft mobility.

    Ramonville station + exceptional Tisséo shuttle every 15 minutes.

Coming to the Halle de La Machine and to the Piste des Géants

with children

With children, we advise you to avoid pushchairs and to use baby carriers instead. If you are with young children (under 3 – 4 years old), choose daytime stages rather than the evening stages which will inevitably attract more people. Always hold your children by the hand in a crowd.


For people with reduced mobility, the Giant’s Track is accessible.  The P1 car park is nearby and a space will be reserved during the stages.
