About the Show
FOR SCHOOL GROUPS
This is the story of Pablo Picasso and his best friend Lump. A cheeky sausage dog with an inquisitive nature.
One fine spring morning, a very curious puppy arrived at the home of Pablo Picasso. He looked into the deep, brown eyes of the artist and decided he was home. From this first chance meeting, a life-long bond was forged between the two – with Lump and his floppy ears appearing in over fifty of the artist’s works.
Based on a true story, Picasso and His Dog tells the heart-warming tale of a man and his dog, and the art that their friendship inspired. Combining ingenious puppetry, imaginative theatre and live painting on-stage, this mad-cap adventure will delight children aged five and up.
