New Village Arts presents A Weekend with Pablo Picasso

Aug 09, 2019  Aug 25, 2019

Playing at New Village Arts Theatre
2787 State Street, Carlsbad, CA 92008

A Weekend With Pablo Picasso finds the artist living in France in 1957 at the height of his celebrity and facing an unexpected, high-profile commission to crank out six paintings and three vases over the course of a single weekend. “Who do you think I am — Dali?” he grouses on the phone to his art dealer. Picasso has grudgingly allowed a group of art students — the audience — to stay at his home/studio while his family is away, a serviceable premise allowing Siguenza to directly engage us with jokes, stories and insights into the artistic life culled from Picasso’s interviews and writings, all while painting, drawing, and creating beautiful abstract pieces before the audience’s eyes.
