Une guerre personnelle

Tatiana Frolova


In the book La couleur de la guerre (The colour of war), Arkady Babtchenko speaks about his experiences as a soldier in the Russian Chechen war. Tatiana Frolova divides the book into thirteen pieces of text and plays in her theatrical adaptation on all the senses: images, sounds, smells and tactile sensations contribute to the viewer's full experience of the subjective sensation of war.
