Luca Silvestrini’s Protein – The Little Prince
Performed on 19 May, 2019
UK Dance Showcase: An enchanting dance show for children and adults alike!
The UK Dance Showcase will be taking place in Bournemouth and Poole from 16 – 19 May. Part of Surf The Wave, the showcasing and touring strategy project powered by Pavilion Dance South West, the showcase will bring hundreds of dance professionals from all over the UK together to experience some truly exceptional performances.
Welcome to the incredible story of The Little Prince, retold in this live show by a pilot stranded in the desert.
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 and lighting by Jackie Shemesh, Protein’s new show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.
Suitable for children young and old.
