Our theatre is one of the busiest in the dance sector; we present over 200 shows each year, including mid-week matinees especially programmed for schools and colleges. Both our mid-week matinees and evening performances often feature post-show discussions with artists where curious minds can put their questions to choreographers and performers.
A range of student works specially selected for young people. Audience discussion in response to each performance is encouraged, and facilitated by our Creative Learning team.
This Christmas we look forward to a magical dance adaption of the classic children's tale The Little Prince from award-winning dance company Protein.
“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (Author of The Little Prince)
Charmingly narrated by a pilot stranded in the desert you'll 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, lighting by Jackie Shemesh and video design by Daniel Denton, Protein’s new show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.
