EVENT: Picasso's Goldfinch
|Picasso's Goldfinch : Written by Tom Jeffcote Directed by Lawrie Cullen-Tait
“…They should put out the eyes of painters as they do goldfinches In order that they can sing better’’ -Pablo Picasso
Once renowned Australian artist Wilson Stryker has lost his creative spark. Wilson is uninspired and exasperated. A serendipitous meeting with Therese, a journalist hungry for a scoop, precipitates an unexpected meeting of the minds.
As their connection intensifies, together they explore the truth that underpins his creativity. Gripping, intimate and tragic, this is an unforgettable tale of transformation.
PICASSO'S GOLDFINCH is a two-hander play performed by Andrew Hale and Tiffany Barton, written by local playwright Tom Jeffcote and directed by the acclaimed Lawrie Cullen-Tait. Tom Jeffcote's previous work TOUGH LOVE received nominations for best actor and director. Tom Jeffcote was a UWA graduate and was enchanted by the English studies he undertook whilst at UWA.
Lawrie Cullen-Tait considers PICASSO'S GOLDFINCH as "a rare gift to any artist and is so beautiful that I don't doubt that it will be staged many times around the world."
Picasso’s Goldfinch has been selected by the Art Gallery of WA for a special CollaborART performance on Picasso’s birthday, 25 October 2012, to coincide with their major exhibition from New York’s Museum of Modern Art - Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters.Tickets for this one-off performance available through Ticketek.com.au or the AGWA ticket desk.
