Short piece fo all audiences, 10 years +
Las Meninas, an art history masterpiece, will be stripped bare by two art experts: Almudena, from Spain and Rachel, from England. Come watch this hilarious investigation, as they scrape away the paint and turpentine to reveal the turbulent relationship between Diego Velázquez and Pablo Picasso across the centuries. The major stories behind this famous work of art are reduced to human squabbles, objects and puppets.
The show is presented in French with a few words in English and Spanish.
RUNNING TIME: 20 minutes
TECHNIQUE: Object, Shadow and Light
