Flamenco y Picasso – De Málaga à Paris

Tuesday, 26.07.2016 | Wednesday, 27.07.2016 | Wednesday, 03.08.2016 19:30 PM, inner courtyard

After last year’s very successful „Flamenco y Goya“, Flamenco-dancer Gisa Michelón, Singer Estela Sanz Posteguillo and their musicians dedicate their new stage performance to Pablo Picasso – another exceptional Spanish artist. In dance and song, they follow his life and his creative periods and by that take a musical journey from Picasso’s Spanish home in Malaga to his stays in the artist-metropolis Paris. Surprising moments and unexpected turns of events await the spectator during this journey – a Flamenco evening as multi-facetted as Picasso himself.

Picasso and the women!

Bulging with life and revelling in the joy of playing, Georg Jenisch brings the obsessions of the iconic artist to the stage, marking his 8th puppet theatre production for Munich Künstlerhaus. The focal point of his grotesque is Picasso himself, depicting how he stumbles from one amorous adventure to another. The women are muse, model, lifeblood – and become a motor for his body of work.

An experimental theatre evening which blurs the lines between biography, theatre and fine arts by means of majestic puppets - which are up to 4 metres in height – a variety of forms, abstractions and wondrous metamorphosis. Following Picasso’s motto: Others write diaries, I paint.


Georg Jenisch created a musical collage of musical pieces by composers who wrote for the legendary „Ballets Russes“ – one of the most outstanding ballet ensembles of the 20th century. In cooperation with visual artists, ballets with a strong focus on stage design were created. Picasso created stage sets and costumes too. Composers like Strawinsky and de Falla stand side by side with Respingi and Satie and give an insight into how vital the strive for new musical expressions was back in those times.

Admission: Adult € 22,- | Concession € 11,-

Who is a Picasso here?

Introduction to the graphic work of Picasso and art workshop

"As a child everybody is an artist. The problem is to stay one as an adult." Picasso

After a tour of the "Hommage à Picasso" exhibition at Munich Künstlerhaus, the kids will create ink drawings with calligraphy brushes and drawing pens. Inspired by Picasso's line-dot- drawings and the graphics created for Balzac's novel "Le Chef-d'oeuvre inconnu" the kids create their own artistic masterpiece. The kids can also leave the creation of their works to chance in Picasso's spirit: "If you know exactly what you want to do, why should you do it?"
