The universe of the little prince

TENT circustheater producties is looking for 4/5 circus artists with movement and acting qualities for a new production: ‘The universe of the little prince’ a fantastic circus performance for the whole family directed by Ingejan Ligthart Schenk.

ARTISTIC
The classic story of Le petit prince by Antoine de Saint-Éxupéry, is the most translated book ever, apart from the bible. This story is the starting point for the contemporary circus performance ‘The universe of the little prince’. Le petit prince will not be recited from A to Z. The performance will work with the themes described in the book and will use the grotesque images that the book evokes. The artists will depict the stories together, and will constantly be switching roles.

‘The universe of the little prince’ will be created in Amsterdam, and will have a rehearsal period of 12 weeks in total, divided over 3 blocks of 4 weeks.

The performance will mostly play in middle size theaters in The Netherlands, and will premiere in the fall of 2020.
