Join the Little Prince in Brussels and discover the exciting life of his creator
Visitors of all ages are guided in a wonderful and immersive journey by the voice of Antoine’s mother, Marie de Saint Exupéry.
The wonderful world of the Little Prince
In the first part, the artist Arnaud Nazare-Aga has succeeded in bringing the wonderful world of The Little Prince to life.
Thanks to his sculptures, which float in the night of space, visitors can revisit the story of this little man who came from a distant planet to tell us about ourselves. His love of sunsets, the baobabs that threaten his planet, the fox he has to tame, the sheep he has to draw and, above all, his rose: so many images that enchant all the children around the world, past and present.
These are images that Arnaud Nazare-Aga’s talent and spectacular staging revive for the pleasure of all, young and old.
The fascinating life of Saint Exupéry
If The Little Prince is known throughout the world, the life of its author is probably less so.
However, he has always nourished his work with his own life. And what a life!
A passionate aviator, aviation pioneer, writer and combatant during the Second World War, Antoine de Saint Exupéry is a multi-faceted novel character.
Through his life and his works, he transmitted universal values which today find a very special resonance in a world context subject to crises and tensions.
This is the first time that so many personal objects, photos, manuscripts and drawings have been brought together to tell the story of his life.
The fusion of two worlds
The world of The Little Prince and that of his creator will come together in a grandiose immersive space where visitors will witness a game of hide-and-seek between the author and his famous character.
In the midst of a fabulous setting, they find each other, get lost and chase each other in a show that makes use of all the current audiovisual resources.
To the extent that the real life of one ends up merging with the dream life of the other. A breathless cross-over that ends in a happy ending.
This immersive experience was conceived in collaboration with Luc Petit (staging), Christophe Gaeta (scenography and coordination), Vianny Fontaine (writing and sound design) and Penseur de Prod (visuals and video mapping).
The Little Prince’s workshop
Finally, visitors are invited to express themselves, react and make choices in an interactive workshop.
Faced with situations from the life and work of the writer, they will have to choose the one they feel closest to from among the thoughts, attitudes and reactions. They will also be able to leave messages for other visitors and for all those who support the Saint Exupéry Foundation throughout the world.
An official touring exhibition
This exhibit has been built in complete partnership with the Saint Exupéry Foundation.
Scenography and content can be adapted by Tempora to fit into smaller venues or foreign markets.
