If you tame me we'll need each other. You'll be the only boy in the world for me. I'll be the only fox in the world for you.

— The Little Prince

 

If You Tame Me takes it's inspiration from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince.
It reimagine's this classic children's story through the eyes of a family that is in the middle of a divorce.  Marrying text and movement, this piece attempts to stay faithful to the message of Exupéry's beautiful book: that "you become responsible forever for what you have tamed".
