More than anyone, the composer Georges Aperghis embodies contemporary musical theatre. As a master of meticulous observation marked by a strong sense of humour, he has invented a new alliance between words, sound and visual elements. Musicians become actors; actors become singers. In this documentary, we present his original and dynamic contemporary artistic approach by exploring the full range of his creative diversity between 1974 and 2005. His musicians, among his most loyal followers, shed light on his creative process and share their perception of his work.
