FOUR LITTLE GIRLS
Based on Pablo Picasso's 1948 text, "Playscript 32", Four Little Girls was adapted and directed by choreographer Ariette Taylor.
Blending dance and puppetry, Four Little Girls looked at life and death from a child's point of view. Though the four characters in Picasso's script were children, previous productions had been performed by adults. Ariette Taylor believed the play demanded child performers.
The box office proved her right. Four Little Girls was received with critical acclaim, touring major venues in Australia during the 1988 Bicentenary celebrations. Between 1994 and 1996 it travelled to South America and South-East Asia and received a UNESCO Promotion of the Arts award in Bogata, Columbia. In 1997 Four Little Girls returned to South America for its final season, at the 11th Festival International de Teatro in Caracas, Venezuela.
