Like the story of the Little Prince, which we have scrupulously respected, an aviator will descend from the sky to find himself, after having crossed the clouds, in a thousand, thousand places all over the inhabited earth and in the middle of the desert. He will meet our Little Prince walking on a sphere, flying with straps, and looking for his sheep.
The characters do not speak. They communicate through the most noble and difficult art in the world: dance, gesture, movement, grace. A narrator is also present, sometimes speaking and sometimes singing, in order to distill the few indispensable verbal truths integral to the work.
Our Little Prince will discover his Rose, a contemporary dancer to whom he will tell of his
journey. He will then meet a King who dances and sits on his « human » chair, a Narcissist who pays tribute to Marcel Marceau with a hip-hop dance performance. He will cry with a Drunkard who dances, wobbles, and collapses, get bored with a Businessman who dances, counts, and recounts, be amazed by a Street Lamp Lighter on his flying pole that turns on and off, approach a contortionist Snake descending a rope, and tame an acrobatic fox, fluttering to end up in the arms of his aviator around a miraculous well.
Thanks to video mapping technology, this poetic tale is both modern and creative. The audience is thus completely immersed in the Little Prince’s cosmic and fantastic world.
