A Weekend with Pablo Picasso
March 31, 2011 – May 1, 2011
Acclaimed actor-writer Herbert Siguenza (of Culture Clash) returns to Los Angeles with his first one man show. Siguenza brings his virtuosic writing, acting and painting skills into Picasso’s private studio, “Le Californie” on the coast of France in 1957 for an intimate and revealing weekend into the creative mind and work of one of the most inspiring artists of modern history. Picasso’s controversial and flamboyant opinions and creations gripped the public imagination and forever changed 20th century art history. This play explores Picasso’s proclamations about ambition, destruction, creativity, love and art as an agent of social change.
