Picasso, the fascinating bohemian artist from twentieth-century Spain, lives in a constant homage after his death. There is an unexpected visit in the celebration of his anniversary: the clowns of Rhum&Cia. The poet, chronicler, and Picasso’s old friend Ramón Gómez de la Serna is going to accompany the clowns in this adventure. Ramón loves mystery: what was Picasso hiding after his harlequin mask? Why did he dream of Minotaurs? 

Ramon and his companions invoke a labyrinth of friends, women, and legends that turned Picasso into a myth. A splendid retable where the emperor of the artists gets naked and dressed up again. Picasso (Rey, Monstruo y Payaso) questions, in the tone of Rhum&Cia, the story of a painter who went through different epochs and styles. With a staging that is as meticulous as it is entertaining, this work also includes happy melancholic hints.
