What to do in Berkeley on Friday Night

 

“Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not”

–Pablo Picasso, Desire Caught by the Tail

Pablo Picasso wrote a play in Nazi occupied Paris while sick in 1941. When first performed in 1944, it was directed by Albert Camus and starred Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sarte. In 1984 it was restaged at the Guggenheim and starred David Hockney. It’s called Le Désir attrapé par la queue (Desire caught by the Tail) and you can see it tomorrow night in Berkeley.

From what I’ve read it’s mostly weird and incomprehensible (I’m not a rube, I know what surrealism is!) and involves color, sex, potatoes, monkeys and a game show. The Lottie Rose Art House, a faction of Tom Franco’s Firehouse Art Collective will put on the play in the midst of community art making, live music, and a dance party starting at 7 pm. You’ll find 20 local artists performing and my friend Doris and I on the dance floor. Or, you could go into the city to see Indigo Girls at the Fillmore.
