Performances: The "Harlequin" comes out of the painting

Centenary of the donation of the work Harlequin by Pablo Picasso to Barcelona

One hundred years ago, Pablo Picasso donated his first work to Barcelona: Harlequin, painted during the stay of the artist in the city in 1917. We invite you to celebrate this gift with us.


The characters of the Commedia dell’arte and the circus come to the Museu Picasso to meet up once again with the Harlequin, and they will interact with the visitors and they will amaze us with their acrobatics, dances, puppets and juggling. 

Guest artists: Circ Xic, with Ton Muntané and Dani Tomás; Aurora Caja; Marionetas Colegone, with Marta Espia and Jonathan Guisado; Dídac Cano; Kari Panska and the Russian dancers of Shansa.
