The Boy Who Bit Picasso Untied Artists Untied Artists and Oxford Playhouse bring this wonderful children’s book to life in an interactive theatre show for everyone aged four and up. With storytelling, music and lots of chances to make your own art. “My name is Tony. I live on a farm. I’ve got the most extraordinary friend. He has a big wide smile and amazing hands. His name is Pablo Picasso.” Tony wants you to come and play with his friend Picasso. It’ll be loads of fun! We’ll get dressed up, let the animals loose, make crazy pictures, and sink our teeth into the delightful story of how a 3 year old boy became pals with one of the greatest artists who ever lived. Audience Feedback - “It was by far the best children’s theatre I have ever seen ! The interaction with the children was wonderful from the start - the actor talking to the children on the floor level even before the play started . It was so well, cleverly produced - clearing up from the many activities became part of the entertainment. Everyone at the end had a big grin on their faces ( young and old ) Real quality. We look forward to the next production from this group. We do go to all your offerings that we can - this was by far THE BEST .” “We LOVED the show! I was asking the kids what they wanted to say about the it and they said "I want to see it again! Because it was so funny and I liked Pablo Picasso. I liked Tony playing the trumpet and the noise it made. I liked making the face out food". They keep asking if they can watch the trailer over and over again...any chance of a full length dvd ?! It's really inspired them - we've been looking at lots of Picasso paintings this week and they've been telling me "Whatever you can think of is real" “We all had a great time and I thought it was a fantastic introduction to abstract art for young children, as well as a good story. You all interacted brilliantly with the kids and, because you limited the size of the audience, it felt really intimate. I also really liked the way you left the children with the idea that anything they see lying around can become something else with imagination. Alice (aged 3) particularly loved the art activities and has been pretending to be a bull since we came home!” to watch a short video http://theuntiedartists.co.uk/Untied_Artists/Picasso_Tour.html ABOUT THE PERFORMER We're a Birmingham based theatre and performance company.
