The Little Prince
Welcome to the incredible story of the Little Prince, retold by a pilot stranded in the desert. Find out how the Little Prince leaves behind his own tiny planet and his beloved rose to travel the universe, coming face to face with the baffling world of grown-ups!
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
The Little Prince is an accessible, mixed-genre performance inspired by the well-known novella written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It tells the story of an adult who meets his inner child through the appearance of a little prince. The story is full of humanistic values and has been passed on from generation to generation for more than 75 years.
The production brings the world-famous story to life in a completely accessible way, using a mixture of spoken word, dance and visuals. The international performers with and without disabilities invite you to look at the world through your heart and to reconnect with your inner child.

Multiple artistic tools make the performance fully accessible. A quadrophonic sound setup and vibrating benches enable the audience to experience music in an alternative way. Subtitles in different languages are fully integrated into the visuals and the set design, various scents and smells connect the scenes with the audience’s emotions and memories.
A touch tour in a dark room will be held before the show. Here, in complete darkness, you can touch all the props and costumes used in the performance and experience the fabrics and materials they are made of. This multitude of creative approaches to accessibility makes the Little Prince a colourful, emotional and inspiring journey for the entire family.
