Mrs. Picasso*

When art and love start to battle, nobody is safe.

Mrs. Picasso is a unique solo performance about the struggle between art and love, heard through the stories of two of Pablo Picasso’s women. There is Olga Khokhlova, the woman Picasso never divorced, and Françoise Gilot, the only woman who dared to leave him.

Both ladies are vividly portrayed by Carlijn van Ramshorst in a captivating performance in which she explores the boundaries between love and art, between madness and sanity and between leaving and staying.

The third woman is Carlijn herself, who breaks through the conventions of theater in a gutsy yet playful way.

An intimate and personal performance where Carlijn seduces you to step into her micro cosmos and the world of Picasso’s women.

As author and director Harry Piekema observes: ‘Carlijn could have easily been Picasso’s muse’.

The idea for this play was born out of the desire to travel the world with just a backpack and being able to perform everywhere. The performance is suitable to be performed on location as well in small scale theatres.

“It isn’t difficult for the audience to be captivated from the minute Ramshorst enters the stage and stay engaged with the emotional turmoil of the tale of two women in Picasso’s life. Ramshorst’s acting truly captures the essence of Khokhlova. It’s intense and heartbreaking, truly enjoyable to watch.”
