What begins as a normal audition for a role in a play turns into an increasingly seductive battle for power in Venus in Fur. Inspired by the notorious 1870 erotic novel of the same name, David Ives' saucy and sensational play pits actress against playwright in a virtuosic display of seduction, cruelty and gamesmanship. As the action shifts between the audition and the play within the play, the two engage in a game of kinky cat and mouse. Venus in Fur soon blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex. Learn More

Very creative piece, high energy, Siguneza embodied the role and took on the various personae - bullfighter, clown, war nightmare - beautifully. The projections were excellent and his on-the-spot painting was fascinating to watch. Good job!
Distinguished actor-writer Herbert Siguenza of Culture Clash fame was first a visual artist. Who better to bring his writing, acting and visual art skills to a one-man tour de force that invites the audience into Picasso’s private studio for an intimate and revealing weekend.
Pablo Picasso was the first rock-star artist. His controversial and flamboyant opinions and creations gripped public imagination and forever changed the way we view art. Actor-writer Herbert Siguenza presents both the art of Picasso and his proclamations about ambition, destruction, creativity, God, love, hate, beauty, patriotism, eternity, and art as an agent of social change. Siguenza will sing, clown, paint, dance, draw, sculpt and impersonate a matador, a minotaur and a satyr.
This new workshop production puts you inside Picasso’s “Le Californie” art studio on the coast of France and inside the creative mind and work of one of the most inspiring artists of modern history.
