26 September Gravelines (FR) : Paris au XXe Siècle, avec la voix de Diane Burghelle-Vernet et les illustrations de François Schuiten. Dans le roman « Paris au XXème siècle », écrit en 1863, Jules Verne imagine Paris un siècle plus tard, en 1960. Il raconte la vie d'un jeune homme qui ne se retrouve pas dans les valeurs que la société lui propose. Á travers cette histoire, l’écrivain s'interroge: "Quelle est la place de l'artiste dans une société régie par la Finance et la Technique?" Interpellés par ce thème, Marie-Noëlle Bette-Leroy et Joris Verdin ont imaginé un programme musical autour du roman.
