A Weekend with Pablo Picasso
Showing:September 7 - October 13, 2013
About the Show
Three years ago the actor/writer Herbert Siguenza (Culture Clash) had the audacity to write an original play and star as Pablo Picasso, the most influential artist in modern history. The REP hosted a 3-week workshop that quickly became a sensation. Now, after polishing the fully-realized work into a critical success that wowed audiences in L.A., the Bay Area, Houston, and Denver, Siguenza’s one-man tour de force returns stronger than a bull in a china shop
Picasso was the first rock-star artist—a ferocious pacifist, obsessive art maker, flamboyantly opinionated philosopher, and self-proclaimed clown—who relished his passionate views about love, death, war, beauty, eternity, and creativity. Siguenza creates a joyful and mesmerizing portrait of the maestro as he dances, sculpts, shares secrets, clowns, draws and impersonates a matador while extensively quoting the father of modern art. With a skill that will amaze you, the actor draws and paints onstage, in real time during every performance! Go back to 1957 and spend three days with a genius inside his private studio on the southern coast of France. We promise a weekend you will never forget.
