A new dance adaptation of The Little Prince by Protein, will be premiering at DanceEast in Ipswitch before going on tour.
The production has been created and directed by Luca Silvestrini, and based on the classic tale by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
The cast of four includes Donna Lennard, Andrew Gardiner, Faith Prendergast and Jack Sergison.
“I am really excited to bring to life such a beautiful and important parable,” Luca Silvestrini said.
“The Little Prince’s journey to other asteroids and planet Earth is both magical and transformative and is a relevant example of what should really matter in life. Love, friendship, and even loss, take centre stage in this story as children make discoveries and their grownups are reminded that they were once children too. I’m incredibly lucky to embark on this journey with a fabulous team of artists and we are creating a theatrical experience that will entertain and connect the entire family.”
The work has been co-commissioned by The Place and DanceEast, supported by The Point, Eastleigh, Warwick Arts Centre and Dance City. It is 60 minutes long and suitable for families and children aged five years upwards.
It will preview at The Point in Eastleigh, before premiering at DanceEast 12 – 16 December 2018 and touring to other venues including Falmouth Unversity and The Place.
