More than 600 people have seen Patrizia Barbuiani’s new production at Teatro Foce in Lugano: SAINT-EXUPÉRY – GREAT LITTLE PRINCE.

On 18th November 2016, the premiere of the new performance of the theatre company of Lugano TEATROX, with Patrizia Barbuiani, Yun Huang and Markus Zohner took place.
SAINT-EXUPÉRY – GREAT LITTLE PRINCE is produced and directed by Patrizia Barbuiani.

 

THE LITTLE PRINCE by Antoine de Saint-Exupery is the most translated work after the Bible and the Capital. It has been translated into 288 languages and it has been printed in Arabic and Cyrillic.

This book accompanied and accompanies generations of readers, a timeless text, that talks about friendship, meaning of life and first stirrings of love.

Patrizia Barbuiani has re-written it with sensitivity for the stage, including some biographical elements of Saint-Exupéry’s life and extracts from his other works.

Anecdotes of his adventurous life, like the flight accident and his love life, are mixed with the story of the Little Prince, as a parallel between author and character, where life and imagination flow between reality and fantasy, dream and vicissitudes, past and future.

Exceptional interpreter the actress and dancer Huang Yun, who played the Little Prince giving it an oriental connotation, speaking Chinese and Italian, moving and dancing with grace and poetry.
The character of the great aviator and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is played by the great and versatile actor Markus Zohner, who is also a pilot of private aircraft.
Patrizia Barbuiani supports them with her comic verve, interpreting the fox, the snake, the rose and narrator along the performance.

Dance, sound, voice, speech, comedy, poetry, and drawings give new life and luster to a well known work, to be presented with new colors, new light and new imagination.

Preparing national and international tournée

Saint-Exupéry piccolo grande principe Saint-Exupéry Little Big Prince Letter from Beatrice,, 18 November 2016 Teatro Foce, Lugano New performance by TeatroX Patrizia Barbuiani Starring Patrizia Barbuiani, Yun Huang, Markus Zohner Assistant: Elisabetta Preite Mail da Beatrice: Cara Patrizia, che meraviglia, che magico il tuo spettacolo. Mi segue e da ieri sera è sempre presente. Un po’ fa piangere, ma di quella malinconia che fa bene, poi fa anche ridere, ma con un sorriso timido e misterioso. Bravissimi tutti e tre nei movimenti, nella mimica e nella recitazione. Che bella scelta hai fatto concentrandoti solo sul pianeta del Piccolo Principe e sul cielo e la terra dell’aviatore. La Rosa e la Volpe aprono la mente su tante domande, verità… cose che crediamo importanti, ma forse non lo sono… la semplicità e la trasparenza sono temi difficili! Mi è piaciuto molto come sei riuscita ad intrecciare la biografia nel racconto. Come detto è un libro che mi sta a cuore e anche questo spettacolo mi rimarrà nel cuore. Tanti auguri per stasera e domani. Salutami Markus e la vostra simpatica Yun. Un affettuoso abbraccio a te.
