design and construction
What once started with an extraordinary question, came to life in the workshop of De Machienerie.
De Machienerie quietly built a mythical animal, a giant, the Lierelei for two years at the request of De Gezellen van 't Groot Volk. A creature; made up of three Lier elements; the eel twisting, the pigeon market and the privilege of the sheep market.
Thanks to the co-makers and partners involved for the trust and great cooperation. As a theater company, you don't get this unique opportunity to make history every day.
The Lierelei could be admired during the Lierse Ommegang on Sunday 2 and Sunday 9 October 2022.
