The true story of Picasso and the sausage dog Lump that arrived at the artist’s villa one fine spring morning during 1957 has inspired the gorgeous new puppetry show, Picasso and His Dog. The show will have its world premiere at HotHouse Theatre on 29 June and run until 2 July with a schedule of performances to suit families.
In the lead up to the show we’ll be celebrating all things dogs, art and love at QEII Square in Albury from 10am to noon with the Picasso and His Dog parade this Saturday, 4 June. Bring along your sausage dog, or other any other breed to take part in the categories Best Dressed – most artistic, Longest Sausage Dog and Best Tricks and you should wear your best beret and stripey shirt! We’ll have some giveaways so come along.
HotHouse Artistic Director, Lyn Wallis meets Sarah Kriegler, the writer and director of Picasso and His Dog. They talk about what kids will like about the show, Sarah’s real pooch ‘Clancy the Wonderdog’, and the pyjamas they will wear at ‘Picasso’s Pyjama Night’ on Friday 1 July.
