Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan), in partnership with the CAC Bretigny, develop the construction and diffusion of several
performances – The X-Event. The creations point out and question the frontiers between dance and plastic arts concerning the exhibition of living art.
Each X-Event form goes with sound from the Baryton’s voice of Victor Torres. The handling of these materials by Nicolas Martz defines a position and a
functionality of sound including composition and time traces.
Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet are associated since 1994 under the generic title les gens d’Uterpan. Their creations focuse on experimentation. Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet collaborate regularly to projects in different fields (theatre, cinema, advertising, fashion). They are also invited to reenact historic pieces.
