Gallery Different are collaborating with Flying Elephant Productions to host a week of theatrical performances of Picasso's women, featuring monologues and confessionals of three of the most influential women in Picasso's early life.

About

Picasso’s Women features a series of monologues and confessionals performed by three of the most influential women in the early life of seminal 20th Century artistic genius, Picasso.

In collaboration with Gallery Different, come and listen to the fascinating lives of Fernande Olivier, Olga Khokhlova and Marie-Thérèse Walter.

The production features Fernande, played by Judith Paris, who tells the audience about the lustful early years of her relationship with Picasso. Fernande is known to have published her memoirs in her later years to great success. The play then focuses on Olga, Picasso’s first wife who is played by Colette Redgrave. She candidly recounts the ‘departments in which Picasso lacked’ and the sadness she felt when she lost her husband to the younger and nubile Marie-Therese performed by Kirsten Moore. Their relationship is featured in the current TATE Modern Exhibition and depicts the passion in their short-lived relationship.
