Flight springs to life through storytelling and acrobatics to create a whimsical world inspired by the classic story The Little Prince.
After critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh & NYC Fringe Festivals, and an Off-Broadway run at the Barrow Street Theatre, Flight will tour in summer 2017.
"Spectacular! Think Pilobolus or a low-tech Cirque du Soleil!"
The Little Prince is a timeless story about learning to see with the heart, and finding the courage to fly. These themes inspired us to create Flight, a sequel with an acrobatic twist. In Flight, three acrobats morph into cactuses, waves, and far-off islands as we invite the audience to discover this classic tale like they’ve never imagined.
Six years after the original, the Pilot has forgotten the Little Prince’s secret, so he embarks on a quest to find his lost friend and remember the secret. However, nothing is as he remembers: planets are islands, the rose is a cactus, and the Little Prince is a tiny girl who proclaims that girls can be princes too.
Curbside’s physical approach to storytelling brings language to life with enchanting shapes, momentum, and magic. We use our bodies to create dynamic images that take audiences on a whimsical journey that ignites the imagination. Starring Taylor Casas, Ezra LeBank, and Cynthia Price as the Little Prince.
“A fantastical visual feast!”
"On my island I can be whatever I call myself, and I’ve chosen to be a prince."
