The Little Prince, Protein’s award-winning family show based on the world-famous French novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is touring in Spring 2023. Suitable for young and old, this enchanting and enlightened account of a young boy’s fascinating journey through the exasperating world of grown-ups is perfect territory for Artistic Director Luca Silvestrini’s quirky, humour-filled observations on the human condition. Faith Prendergast is touchingly excellent in the title role, dancing from planet to planet on Yann Sebra’s ingenious set with fleet-footed ease, meeting a king who reigns over nothing, a businessman obsessively counting stars and a vain man craving admiration from all who pass by.
With Protein’s trademark mix of dance, spoken word, music and fun, and a multi-talented cast, audiences are encouraged to re-imagine the world through their hearts, embracing a sense of grounded universality, and reconnecting with the child that’s in all of us.
