A storyteller crashes his plane in the Sahara desert... and so begins this elegant, narrated acrobatic interpretation of Antoine de Saint Exupery’s novella, The Little Prince.
The story, brought to life by Cynthia Price, Christian Sullivan and Taylor Casas, illustrates the tension between the mostly economic priorities of the adult mind (and its lack of imagination) and the wonder of the way a child sees the world - a child who is trying to protect his special home with its cactus and a badger and the threat of "bottle trees."
Everything in this 45-minute show is conveyed through the lithe bodies and voices of these three charismatic performers from Long Beach, Calif. It’s an enchantment, physically flowing and brimming with emotion and a deep good-heartedness.
