A dance an music creation. First shows on 24th and 25th June 2022 at Salle de l’Aiglon in Aigle.

This piece will last around 80 minutes and will tell the famous and emotional story of «The Little Prince» written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Many children grew up with this book but we often hear that we really understand an appreciate the story as adults. Be ready to get inspired and mesmerized by all this poetry. The creation will reflect all the important themes of the story mixte with the childish touch.

«The Little Prince» calls out on the different faults of society, which are still very accurate nowadays. These faults are represented by strange characters that the Little Prince meets along the way. He visits the planets with great awareness and thoughts about human kind, its bewilderment, its excesses that are bad for its happiness. The journey of this protagonist and every meeting are performed by unique dancers and musicians .
