About the listing
Picasso and His Dog - For anyone who’s ever patted a dog or been moved by an artwork.
‘Picasso and His Dog’ is inspired by the true life story of Pablo Picasso and his sausage dog Lump. This delightful show celebrates the animals with whom we share our lives while exploring what it is to be creative and to create. Created by Lemony S Puppet Theatre, this work is an inventive mix of live art-making on-stage, puppetry and magic realism. ‘Picasso and His Dog’ is about how the animals in our lives can inspire us to be excellent humans (and artists).
This work is a unique children's puppet play that combines the art and story of Picasso with the extraordinary poems of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda and the text of Picasso's contemporary and lifelong friend, Gertrude Stein. It is a refreshingly original work, wild and adventurous.
