Performance combining songs, readings and images
In French & English

On 11th November, the anniversary of the First World War Armistice, one of the greatest contemporary graphic novel authors and illustrators, Tardi, and his wife, the singer-songwriter Dominique Grange, will perform their work, Putain de guerre ! (Goddamn This War!). In a poignant evocation of the First World War, Dominique Grange will perform music from her own repertoire, as well as songs by unknown soldiers and pieces by Aragon and Ferré. Tardi will read caustic excerpts from Putain de guerre !, a graphic novel he created in collaboration with the historian Jean-Pierre Verney, while his images, taken from the same work, will be shown on screen. They will be accompanied on stage by five musicians from the Accordzeam group.

Brought to fame with the Adèle Blanc-Sec graphic novel series, Tardi has found favour with the public thanks to his work on The Great War, cumulating in C’était la guerre des tranchées and Putain de guerre !; a work which has enjoyed unanimous acclaim.
