If you can imagine Pablo Picasso dancing hip hop while he’s painting in front an audience, you’ll get an idea of The Painters: HERO.
In this innovative art performance, we have four Korean artists taking the stage, using different art techniques to turn separate blank canvases into striking paintings, all the while dancing to funky music. Each mini segment usually ends with bringing the art pieces together, revealing a bigger picture with pretty surprising results.
This in your chance to catch them live on stage, here in Resorts World Theatre on 10 and 11 June.
What’s the story of The Painters: HERO?
In a city where heroes have disappeared, the people are left in hopelessness. Four painters decide to come together to build a Drawing Theatre. Here, they perform for the people to spread artistic inspiration and bring joy back.
