World Book Day at the Woolwich Library
On World Book Day (5 March) 2020, students from local primary schools in the Royal Borough of Greenwich joined the Protein’s the Little Prince at the Woolwich Library and journeyed with him through a weird and wonderful universe, meeting fascinating characters along the way.
The day was led by the different characters in the show. With an original score by Frank Moon, the playful and interactive workshop began with warming up with the Little Prince, before exploring the universe and landing on different planets to meet the other characters, their dances and games. Children sang along with the Rose, received commands from the King and learnt how to dance with the Fox whilst dressed as their favourite story book character.
Did you know that The Little Prince, written by by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is one of the most translated books in the world, and was voted the best French book of the 20th Century?
Loved by children and adults around the world for generations, the classic tale by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been given a fresh and witty new adaptation using Luca Silvestrini’s distinctive blend of dance, humour, words and music.
