Azul tells the story of Pablo Picasso – perhaps the greatest and most influential painter of the 20th century – at a short but crucial moment of his life when he obsessed over one particular woman. Taking place during La Belle Époque, Azul reimagines Picasso’s life from 1900-1904 in Paris and Barcelona. Interweaving live flamenco music and dance, it is a dramatic canvas of Picasso’s thoughts, doubts, actions and torments that drove him to paint in blue.
