Artists Statement:

For several years now the work that we develop examines the norms that define dance and the live arts. Our involvement touches upon several points, by exploring, among other things, the limits of the human body and of representation. The work explores the various frameworks that condition the body and mind by re-inventing the methods of exposition, production and appearance in performance. By integrating the place occupied by spectators, programmers and institutions into these processes, this approach re-proportions the choreographic field and the position of the choreographer, and applies it outside the original context. At the centre of today's evolutions and possibilities, the projects that we propose confront the socio-political issues of our times.

Artists Bio:

Annie Vigier was born in 1965 and Franck Apertet in 1966. They live and work in Paris.

Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan) examines the norms that define dance and the live arts. 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.

Their pieces have been presented at the Project Arts Centre Dublin (Ireland), the Tate Modern London and the Institute of Contemporary Arts London (United Kingdom), the Kunsthalle Basel (Switzerland), the VI Cali performance Festival (Colombia), the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw (Poland), the Kunsthaus Graz-Museum Joanneum (Austria), the Berlin Biennale for contemporary art 2008 and 2010 (Germany), the Nam June Paik Art Center Seoul (Korea), White Box New York (USA) among other places…
