Picasso and His Dog – for anyone who’s ever patted a dog or been moved by an artwork.

Picasso and His Dog is inspired by the true life story of Pablo Picasso and his sausage dog Lump. This delightful show celebrates the animals with whom we share our lives while exploring what it is to be creative. Created by Lemony S Puppet Theatre, this work is an inventive mix of live art-making on-stage, puppetry and magic realism. Picasso and His Dog examines how the animals in our lives can inspire us to be excellent humans (and artists).

Picasso and His Dog is as finely devised and realised piece of theatre, of any kind, as you will see. For children, who deserve nothing but the best in their early experience of the arts, it is a gift beyond measure. – See Saw magazine
