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?ť he grouses on the phone to his art dealer). Picasso has grudgingly allowed a group of art students 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 audiences eyes.
Each night, Siguenza will also auction off one of the paintings he creates during the course of the eveningâ€™s performance.
The production will run from August 9 to August 25, 2019.
