Curbside acrobatic theatre takes Flight in Signal Hill.

Flight springs to life through storytelling, physical theatre, and acrobatics to create a whimsical world inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic children’s story The Little Prince. Flight premiered in August at the Edinburgh International Festival Fringe in Scotland, the world’s largest arts festival, where it played to over 1,200 audience members from across the world, and was nominated for Best Show, Best Family Show, and Best Performance in a Family Show.

Our favorite pilot crashes on the Mexican coast while he’s searching for his lost friend, The Little Prince. Memories of twinkling stars transform into sand dunes, crashing waves, and far off islands as he remembers that what is most important can only be seen with the heart.

Written by Ezra LeBank and directed by Olivia Treviño, Flight uses physical invention to harness the capacity of the human body to bring the story to life.

Curbside is led by LeBank, CSULB Professor of Movement, and author of the newly released book CLOWNS (Routledge, UK). Curbside is based in Long Beach, California.

Flight performs November 14-15 at 7 p.m. Elevation Studios, 1900 E. 27th St. in Signal Hill. Tickets cost $15 in advance; $10 for students at children; $20 at the door.
