“If you want a friend, tame me.
– What must I do, to tame you? asked the little prince.
– You must be very patient, replied the fox.
First you will sit down at a little distance from me-like that-in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings. But you will sit a little closer to me, every day…”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

”On Valentine’s Day there was the premiere of a warm and beautiful dancetheatre piece, Prince Blue. It is a story about seeking and founding a friend (…) The work was artistically on a high level. Heidi Masalin’s choreography and direction combined dance and physical theatre on a clear and skillful manner.”
