Poland. A typical industrial town. Here begins “The Work of Machines”. This dance was created in 1968 to celebrate the Factory. Following the memories, it was possible to recreate the forgotten dance. This reconstruction becomes a time vehicle to the past, allowing for a trip to the era where production was supposed to mean a happy life.
