In partnership with the Théâtre des Ilets (Montluçon)
The Industry Box combines the photographic creations of Philippe Malone made at industrial sites in Montluçon and its surroundings, with narratives of the lives of Montluçon workers collected and shaped by Carole Thibaut, that trace, through their intimate history, a century of industry, from the fire of the Saint-Jacques forges and shell factories of 1914-1918 to the cutting-edge industries that survive today.
A living history of struggles, of humanity, of intimate and political dramas, to which Monique Brun, Olivier Perrier and Valérie Schwarcz lend their voices, on a musical creation by Camille Rocailleux.
A sensitive and poetic journey in the industrial history of the 20th and 21st centuries told by those who lived it.
