Picasso and His Dog
Friday 23 August 2019
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 you share your 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 your lives can inspire you to be excellent humans (and artists).
Fun fact! The dog’s name was Lump which means ‘Rascal’ in German and was Picasso’s dog in real life! To complement this theatre performance, the public programs and education department is offering a free cubist mask workshop before the theatre show.
