A 20-minute performance piece about the challenge of bringing museum objects to life. With the use of movement and words, set in one of the most beautiful rooms of the museum, The Captains’ Room. Presented by the actress and writer Aimee, and the dancer and teacher Adrín, uniting these two artistic disciplines in a piece of dance theatre the viewer will be immersed in the artwork of Pablo Picasso.
Suitable for all ages.
Pere Romeu and Ramon Casas are stuck inside the Picasso ink and wax work in The Hunt Museum in the manner of the original 1897-1903 Els Quatre Gats coterie and atmosphere, when Barcelona was suddenly for Catalan artists, a place to be somebody else, a place to be a fully fleshed-out bohemian, as much as in Paris at the famous, catalytic “Le Chat Noir”. They are having difficulty bringing the objects to life in the Hunt Collection – not so far off the philosophical and free discussions one imagines would have taken place at Els Quatre Gats café, Barcelona, in the early hours of the morning.
This performance is supported by the Irish Museums Association.
