Saturday 28 November – ATOTAL : Franck Vigroux & Antoine Schmitt

The French premiere of the new musical performance by Franck Vigroux and Antoine Schmitt, which strikes a tone that undoubtedly resonates with one of Philip K. Dick’s many parallel universes.


Created and organised by Biennale Némo / Le CENTQUATRE-PARIS & the École Polytechnique, the École des Arts Décoratifs-PSL and the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation. Based on a proposal by Christopher Robinson, a lecturer at École polytechnique who specialises in science fiction and fantasy in art, literature and cinema.

Developed in collaboration with Frédéric Landragin (CNRS research director with a PhD in computer science / linguistics, and author of Comment parler à un alien ? Langage et linguistique dans la science-fiction, published by Éditions Le Bélial), the artists Donatien Aubert and Ismaël Joffroy Chandoutis (both exhibited in the exhibition Beyond Reality? ) and the theatre director Julien Villa (author of Philip K. ou la fille aux cheveux noirs).
