Picasso and His Dog, inspired by the true life story of the eminent Spanish artist and his much loved canine companion Lump, will be performed at Arts Centre Melbourne on 23 & 24 March 2019. Lemony S Puppet Theatre’s work for children aged five and above celebrates the animals with whom we share our lives while exploring what it is to be creative and to create.

The story follows Pablo Picasso and his relationship with his best friend, Lump, a cheeky sausage dog with an inquisitive nature. The work travels across time and space in a series of imaginative leaps using puppetry to transform the detailed set design as the performers play with scale, shadow puppetry, visual illusions, painting and live art-making on stage.
