The Geek days are back for two days of pop culture at the Parc-expo de Caen

Imagined by the company GL events, the Geek days are aimed at fans of all pop cultures, more particularly related to new technologies. “It’s more of an event than a fair, insists Aurélie Siesse, director of Geek days. It all started in Lille, seven years ago. Building on its success, this event has become more and more specialized, with lots of free entertainment. »

In Caen (Calvados), this convention will bring together, Saturday October 15 and Sunday October 16, 2022 at the Parc-expo, more than 60 exhibitors and numerous activities around video games, gaming, cosplay (the costumed incarnation of a character) , manga, comics, etc.

Dubbing actors

Among the guests of this convention are dubbing actors. Like Dorothée Pousséo, French voice of Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad) or Elsa Pataky (Fast and Furious), but also animated characters like Adamaï in Wakfu or Horace in kid paddle board.

Hervé Grull is a reference in the dubbing of Japanese anime (Yuji Itadori in Jujutsu KaisenRui in Demon Slayer, Baki Hanma in Bakietc.) “The fans are very fond of these dubbing actors, notes Aurélie Siesse, because they are the embodiment of their characters. They share their experience with these anime or series fans, and can also talk to them about the production! »
