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 and to create.

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 is about how the animals in our lives can inspire us to be excellent humans (and artists).
