Experience in movement the timeless characters and charming themes of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince. This original ballet for both children and adults follows the prince as he looks at our world with the wisdom of a child, highlighting the absurdities of adults, and learning what it is to matter to another. Performed to an eclectic score with music ranging from Debussy to Swing, Contemporary African to Electronic, the story and original ballet reminds us, “all grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.”

The second act includes two contemporary works from Directors Maartje Lawrence-Hermans and Ryan Lawrence, which were premiered this past spring at an outdoor venue as one of SLO County’s first live performances. The works, Holding Connection and Lost in Place were made during various degrees of lock-down and mark the unique period we have just experienced. Both works received standing ovations by sold-out audiences for their emotially derived movement language and strong dramatic performances.
