This production is based on the idea of a competition. A parade of six daredevil pilots and their flying machines makes its way through the city centre accompanied by the ground crew (amateur actors) and the French music group 'Fanfare Le Snob'. The pilots try to win the favour of the audience as they go. Which of them has the most beautiful flying machine and which is the best at flying? Who will be the first to rise into the air from the prepared take-off strip at the site of the parade finale?
Fire effects and explosions are the sparkling power behind the pilots' grotesque flying attempts. And it isn't only the envy and indignation between the competitors which cause general confusion but also the presence of the Black Angel, who plays his own particular game on the pilots.
