A story of the painter and the painted. Dora Maar attempts to reclaim ownership of what she lost when she gave her face to Picasso and he gifted it to the world as The Weeping Woman series. Combining elements of dance, lyrical language and visual art within an intensely theatrical construct, this work comes to the stage as an exhibition in a transitional space. As Dora seeks to reconstruct the pieces of her being she emerges as a curiously defiant figure and proves inextricably linked with the art that she has become.
|Owning the Stage|
This play frames art as a medium of multiple understandings and interpretations and directly interacts with the way audiences engage with art. It asks us to question not only our personal responses to the Weeping Woman series but also the consequences of producing such powerful representations. Who owns this face? Who owns this grief?
