“Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s story, told by a pilot stranded in the desert, about a little prince who comes from a distant asteroid, is full of charm and whimsy. In the wrong hands it can be overly sweet but Protein Dance’s staging has already won plaudits out on tour as it turns a much loved story into a piece of dance theatre suitable for all ages. It’s not the only version of the tale which features an untameable fox, a wise snake and a king without any subjects available this year. If dance isn’t your bag, check the new version at the Omnibus in Clapham which runs until December 30 and features music from composer Lilian Henley who regularly works with the fabulous 1927.”
Presented by Luca Silvestrini’s Protein
Charmingly narrated by a pilot stranded in the desert, you'll find out how the Little Prince leaves behind his own tiny asteroid and beloved rose and journeys through the universe, coming face to face with the baffling world of grown-ups! Have you ever heard of a king who reigns over nothing? Or a businessman obsessively counting stars?
Once on planet Earth, the Little Prince is welcomed by a mysterious snake and a truly wise and friendly fox before encountering the lone pilot. Together they discover the power and beauty of friendship and the complexity of love.
Based on the world-famous story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince is brought to life using Protein’s award winning mix of dance, humour and spoken word. With an original score by Frank Moon, design by Yann Seabra, lighting by Jackie Shemesh and video design by Daniel Denton, Protein’s charming dance theatre show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.
