About Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d´Uterpan)
They live and work in Paris. Under the generic title les gens d’Uterpan, they have developed creations focusing on experimentation.
Their action touches upon several points, by exploring, among other things, the limits of the human body and of representation. This process implies redefining the practice of dance and the function of the dancer. By appearing in different frameworks that reveal the action of the body, or by adapting to them, they provoke the conditions for a new reflection on the different methods of representation, production and interpretation of performance.
The interpretation of this physical presence also puts into question the positions of the spectator and the choreographer in these processes.
Initiated with innovative collaborations with cultural operators from different sectors, their action includes the economic aspect as part of the artistic project.
The fine arts sector accompanies this movement of opening up by sharing viewpoints and highlighting the answers provided to these issues.

About the program Meet, Eat and Talk
An informal dialogue about a meal or as this afternoon a little cake and coffee, we talk about dance, choreography and art. The event is lead by Dansehallernes artistic director and director Efva Lilja.
