Picasso at the Lapin Agile
by Present Company Theatre
Jan. 29 - Feb. 16, 2015
A surreal space-time continuum-bending immersive theatrical experience of hysterical historical proportions with a visual arts apertif and a lucid dream chaser. Welcome to Paris, 1904.
Step inside the Bar Lapin Agile and experience the poignant and surreal meeting of two of the 20th century’s most fascinating minds, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso. Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall for this historic and fictitious occasion? You bet your Unified Field Theory you would. Now, what if this meeting was orchestrated by Steve Martin? Yes, Steve Martin the comedian.
The Lapin Agile will open its doors on January 29th, 2015 for 12 immersive presentations at The Museum of Human Achievement, where we will absurdly bend the space-time continuum and invite you to ponder the definition of creativity, the surreal nature of existence, and the meaning of life (no big deal), while we challenge you to not pee your pants from sheer joy and laughter. Best of luck!
As if presenting a top-notch comedy by one of America’s finest comedians wasn’t already enough, we will also attempt to cross-pollinate, diversify, and strengthen the bonds within Austin’s arts communities by featuring live music and an exhibit of local painters, curated for the event. See, we have this hunch that arts can illuminate each other across disciplines–because one hand washes the other.
Graciously sponsored by the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division, the Austin Creative Alliance, East End Wines, Lumiere Tintype, RealmBuild, Miller Blueprint, Farmhouse Delivery, and Zinnia & Co.
