“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.”


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! Based on the world-famous story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,

Luca Silvestrini’s The Little Prince is winner of the Fantastic for Families’ Best Family Event Award 2020 and was nominated for Best Modern Choreography at the National Dance Awards 2021.

The Little Prince is brought to life using Protein’s critically acclaimed mix of dance, humour and spoken word.
