Pablo is danced by the full Scapino ensemble with live music from top orchestra Sinfonia Rotterdam in an occupancy of up to 24 musicians.

The whole, together with the beautiful historical costumes, give the show a grand impression.

Through the life of Picasso, the crowd will be included in the development of Spanish society during world wars, dictatorship and reform. Simultaneously Morau gives a touching look at the Spanish soul and spirited national character with deep emotions and the struggle between tradition and innovation.

Morau won great prizes in a short time, such as the National Dance Award from the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
