BAOBÁ

2010

Baobabwith general conception and direction by José Possi Neto and choreography by Dany Bittencourtis a work presented by Cisne Negro Dance Companyin a free adaptation of the work The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, where the Little Prince returns to Earth in search of a friend and meets an Afro-Brazilian prince and with him will discuss important issues such as: sustainability of the planet, rational use of natural resources, and the difference between their worlds.

This is a pocket version of the original work, where the Princes sing and, in the language of theater and dance, bring important messages through the famous phrases of the Little Prince, such as the word captivate when he says: "You become eternally responsible for what you captivate", in the meeting with his rose, which he believes to be unique on the planet, of which he is totally responsible... A language apparently childish (the child), with deep reflections (big people).
