Picasso, a successful and fascinating bohemian painter, is the subject of a perpetual tribute since his death. But unexpected visitors arrive at the party of his anniversary: Rhum&Cia, a company of clowns. They are accompanied by Picasso’s old friend Ramon Gomez de la Serna, a poet and circus chronicler. Ramon likes mysteries. What is Picasso hiding behind his Harlequin mask? Why did he dream of minotaurs? Was he a scoundrel or a gentleman? Ramón and the company invoke a labyrinth of friends, women and legends that converted Picasso into a myth.
A marvelous tableau where the emperor of artists undresses and dresses up at the same time. Picasso (King, Monster and Clown) examines the story of a painter who lived through different periods and styles, but this time who does so from the point of view of Rhum&Cia.
Rhum&Cia is an ‘unstable’ circus theatre company consisting of Jordi Martínez, Joan Arqué, Roger Julià, Pepino Pascual and Mauro Paganini, whose first show was Rhum, a tribute to the clown Joan Montanyè ‘Monti’ who passed away in 2013. In 2014 the show won the Zirkólika Award for Best Clown Show. The creations of this troupe of clowns are characterised by a large dose of originality, humour, hooliganism, tenderness and emotion, and are visually spectacular.
