Above the Paris ring road, (the Boulevard Périphérique), stands the Electric Circus, somehow timeless and not part of the town at all. During the rest period in August, Dave, JC and Tétaar are in charge of looking after things and of maintenance. During pauses in the hosing down and painting activities, they take time to talk about who they are and where they come from. They have taken refuge in the Electric Circus before being able to move onto the next stages of their lives.
