Gilles Gentner

Gilles Gentner began his training by working in French cultural centers as a sound and light technician.

In 1991, he met Olivier Py who made him assistant to his light designer, Patrice Trottier. In 1994, he began a longstanding collaboration with Laurent Gutmann, creating all of the light design for Gutmann’s work since that time. Gentner’s work spans theater (Catherine Marnas, Arnaud Churin, Etienne Pommeret, Jean-Baptiste Sastre, Anne Caillère, Louido De Lenqueseing, Gloria Paris), dance (Jérome Bel, Boris Charmatz, Olga De Soto, Sylvain Prunenec, Tomeo Verges, Cuqui Jerez, Claudia Triozzi, Richard Siegal, Julie Nioche), fashion (Cartier, installations with Laurent P. Berger and Tomeo Verges), opera (Guiseppe Frigeni, Emmanuel Rousseau) and music (Xavier Boussiron).
