People in one city in Latvia were treated to a unique show of man vs. machine today - a dance between a Frenchman and shovel.

Dominique Boivin, a famed choreographer, has staged this duet of dancer and digger in 40 countries over the last seven years.

To classical music, Philippe Priasso stands on the excavator, rolls over it and dangles from it and even slides off it into a handstand.

Spectators say they were impressed by the mix of classical and technical.

In case you're wondering, the excavator operator is the same in all the shows.
