In this stunning graphic-novel adaptation of Robert Lepage and Marie Michaud's play, the personal meets the political, East meets West, and old meets new. Claire, a Quebecoise art dealer, arrives in China to adopt a little girl. There she visits her ex-husband, Pierre, who after fifteen years in China has begun to question the new directions his adopted country is going in. Claire and Pierre's lover, the young Chinese artist Xiao Ling, become fast friends. Through this classic love triangle, The Blue Dragon examines aging, cultural confusion, fertility, and creativity, and emerges as a fascinating examination of some of modern China's most intriguing paradoxes.Fred Jourdain's gorgeous, colourful, and cinematic drawings do full justice to the story's genesis as one of Robert Lepage's most dazzling theatrical constructions. A feast for the mind as well as the senses, The Blue Dragon is an extraordinary graphic novel for grownups.
