UK's Untied Artists to perform "The Boy Who Bit Picasso" for parents and children in December
     Untied Artists from the United Kingdom (UK) will perform the interactive theatre show "The Boy Who Bit Picasso" in December. Aimed at children aged 4 to 8 and their parents, this hands-on family show promises to take audiences into a funny world of music and painting.

     Untied Artists (UK) tells the true story of a boy who became friends with Picasso and discovered the magic of friendship, at the same time introducing one of the 20th century’s most influential artists as seen through the eyes of a young boy. Audiences may also participate in painting sessions.
     Tony doesn’t like mathematics class at school. He escapes by daydreaming - just like many of children do. One day an exciting visitor, Picasso, comes to visit and cheers him up. Tony begins to find that mathematics is fun. But unfortunately Picasso returns home to France.  That night Tony dreams about Picasso, so Tony and his mum decide to visit Picasso in France where they get to treasure some special time with the great artist and explore countless interesting things.

     Details of the performances are as follows:
December 2 (Friday), 4.30pm and 8pm
December 3 (Saturday), 2pm, 5pm and 8pm
December 4 (Sunday), 2pm and 5pm
Cultural Activities Hall, Sha Tin Town Hall
