Matthew Bourne’s delightful and bittersweet Nutcracker! offers a delicious dance treat over at Sadler’s Wells, and I’d highly recommend it. But if you are looking for something on a smaller scale which is very definitely aimed at a family audience then you won’t go wrong with Protein’s Dance’s inventive take on Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s story about an inquisitive Little Prince who sets off to explore the universe and has some unexpected encounters. If you and your kids enjoyed Arthur Pita’s The Little Match Girl you will also fall for this whimsical story that premiered at the Place in 2019 where it charmed critics and audiences.
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.
