An enthralling multimedia production about photographer Dora Maar and her intense love affair during the 1930s with Pablo Picasso.
Written by acclaimed Caribbean-British poet Grace Nichols, the work is set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War and features live flamenco music and dance alongside exhilarating acting and projected images.
The Flamenco element is provided by Amor Flamenco - featuring guitarist José León, dancer Ana Dueñas León and singer Julio Lopez Fuentes - who evoke through music and dance the subtle layers and powerful impulses of this emotionally-charged relationship.
