Cefnogwyd gan | Supported by The Point, Eastleigh, Warwick Arts Cen Wedi’i garu am genhedloedd gan blant ac oedolion ar draws y byd, bydd hanes clasur Antoine de Saint-Exupéry yn cael ei addasu’n ffres ac yn ffraeth gan ddefnyddio cyfuniad unigryw Luca Silvestrini o ddawns, hiwmor, geiriau a cherddoriaeth. Bydd gwahoddiad i gynulleidfaoedd ymuno â’r Tywysog Bach wrth iddo deithio drwy fydysawd rhyfedd a hyfryd, ac wrth iddo gwrdd â chymeriadau diddorol ar hyd y ffordd a dysgu am werth cyfeillgarwch a chariad.
Loved by children and adults around the world for generations, the classic tale by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry will be given a fresh and witty new adaptation using Luca Silvestrini’s distinctive blend of dance, humour, words and music. Audiences will be invited to join the Little Prince as he journeys through a weird and wonderful universe, meeting fascinating characters along the way whilst learning about the value of friendship and lov

Ar goll yn yr anialwch lle mae o wedi syrthio gyda’i awyren, mae peilot yn cwrdd â bachgen chwilfrydig sy’n adrodd hanes hynod wrtho am sut wnaeth o adael ei asteroid bach a theithio’r bydysawd. Ar y daith hon, mae’r Tywysog Bach yn dod wyneb yn wyneb â byd dryslyd oedolion, o frenin sy’n rheoli dros ddim byd i ddyn busnes sy’n cyfri’r sêr, o neidr ddirgel i lwynog cyfeillgar. Gyda cherddoriaeth wreiddiol gan Frank Moon, dylunio gan Yann Seabra a goleuo gan Jackie Shemesh, mae sioe newydd Protein yn ein gwahodd ni i edrych ar y byd drwy ein calonnau ac ail-gysylltu gyda’n plentyn mewnol.

Mae’r cast o bedwar yn cynnwys Donna Lennard ac Andrew Gardiner o gynyrchiadau cynt gan Protein, sef May Contain Food a Border Tales. Yn ymuno â nhw bydd Faith Prendergaast, sydd wedi perfformio eisoes gyda chwmnïau gan gynnwys Russell Maliphant Company ac Arthur Pita, a Jack Sergison, sydd wedi perfformio’n ddiweddar gyda Gary Clarke a Vincent Dance Theatre.
Stranded in the desert where he’s crashed his plane, a pilot meets an inquisitive boy who tells him a remarkable story of how he left his own tiny asteroid and journeyed through the universe. On this journey, the Little Prince comes face to face with the baffling world of grown-ups, from a king who reigns over nothing to a businessman obsessively counting stars, from a mysterious snake to a truly wise and friendly fox. With an original score by Frank Moon, design by Yann Seabra and lighting by Jackie Shemesh, Protein’s new show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.

The cast of four will include Donna Lennard and Andrew Gardiner from previous Protein shows May Contain Food and Border Tales respectively. Joining them will be Faith Prendergast, who has previously performed with companies including Russell Maliphant Company and Arthur Pita, and Jack Sergison, who has recently performed with Gary Clarke and Vincent Dance Theatre.


“I am really excited to bring to life such a beautiful and important parable. The Little Prince's journey to other asteroids and planet Earth is both magical and transformative and is a relevant example of what should really matter in life. Love, friendship, and even loss, take centre stage in this story as children make discoveries and their grownups are reminded that they were once children too. I’m incredibly lucky to embark on this journey with a fabulous team of artists and we are creating a theatrical experience that will entertain and connect the entire family.” - Luca Silvestrini

Formed in 1997 and currently one of the most distinctive voices in British dance theatre, Luca Silvestrini’s Protein uses a blend of original choreography, humour and music to entertain and provoke audiences. The company’s idiosyncratic dance theatre is provoked by the everyday and its repertoire includes B for Body, a Place Prize Finalist in 2006, the award-winning LOL (lots of love), May Contain Food and Border Tales which have toured nationally and internationally since their debut, winning acclaim from critics and audiences alike. Its celebrated outdoor show (In)visible Dancing was seen last year as part of Hull 2017 UK City of Culture, and more recently in August 2018 at Stockton International Riverside Festival. Protein was awarded the Critic’s Circle National Dance Award for Best Independent Dance Company 201Peirianydd Sain | Sound Engineer
