Synopsis


“The urge to destroy is also a creative urge”


- Mikhail Bakunin.


Muse is a new play based on the life of surrealist photographer Dora Maar and her relationship with Pablo Picasso.


As the enigmatic muse behind Picasso's "Weeping Woman," she appears always fragmented, not quite there, forever refracted and distorted through his gaze.


Taking place during WWII, the play explores the inherent violence of the relationship between artist and muse.


The god takes from the blind worshipper just like the artist takes from the muse.


Muse takes us on a surreal journey through time, colors, tears, blood, and fragments, asking what is the price to pay for a place in the long halls of art history?
