PROTEIN DANCE | THE LITTLE PRINCE (SCHOOLS)

Tue 10 - Thu 12 Dec
£7 per student. For every 10 students, a teacher goes free.

★★★★ “Luca Silvestrini’s The Little Prince fills the eye and the heart.” – Culture Whisper

In this enchanting story of love and friendship for children and adults alike, 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, 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. With an original score by Frank Moon, design by Yann Seabra, lighting by Jackie Shemesh and video design by Danial Denton, Protein’s show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.

“All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.” – Antonine de Saint-Exupéry
