The Arches are are proud to present a rare and intimate performance from actress and singer Jane Birkin – Serge Gainsbourg’s elusive partner and muse – following the UK premiere of her 40 minute documentary, Souvenirs of Serge.

Revisiting many of Gainsbourg’s most seminal works alongside a handpicked band of musicians, this is an unmissable opportunity to see the iconic star – probably best known for her breathless vocals on the now-infamous 1969 track Je T’Aime – perform live and experience firsthand the magnetic and myserious attraction which captivated Serge during his most creative period.

In Souvenirs of Serge, which will be screened before the gig, fans will witness the previously unseen side of her relationship with Serge, charting an intimate and candid history of their time together through never-before-seen footage captured throughout their tempestuous thirteen-year relationship.
