Horn trumpets sound over the town to touch the crystal heart of our sleeping hero.  At the edge of dreams a strange murmur evokes ancestral legends.  A sudden chime of bells and the Guardians of Time surge from out of a wave of white spray.  They pound the earth with their long staves as if breaking a mirror, the invisible surface covering another world.  Behind them,  a bride advances majestically, immense, mysterious, haloed by a cloud of feathers, fluttering birds, tree men, protective angels with huge wings – a whole procession sets off in search of the celestial wedding.  

 These immense creatures, fantastic white stiltwalkers, are truly living sculptures.  Betwixt night and day, past and future; harbingers of poetry, of the silence of the desert, they symbolise magic doors opening upon a universe of enigmatic make-believe.  

They draw their energy from philosophers, thinkers, they create spaces which softly efface the nuisances of noise and agitation.  Time is suspended, we can hear the birds of the world sing and we are happy just to contemplate – the pure magic of an instant of absolute beauty.

 Then this moment of suspension ends, and life begins anew, first with a barely perceptible movement, which gradually radiates out to the whole group and slowly gives rise to a ballet of majestic choreography.  Their parade evolves around the spaces, creating images which incorporate esplanades, squares, parks – a gentle figurative calligraphy which leaves its unforgettable mark.
