Gentrification is at the center of “Sea of Common Catastrophe,” a meditative piece that combines theater, music and dance. It was developed by multidisciplinary company ArtSpot, which is based in New Orleans.  

“Our work does not begin with a script,” said ArtSpot Artistic Director Kathy Randels in an interview with Lois Reitzes. “We start with an idea we want to explore …We, on some level, play in the sandbox for a year and then share our experiments.”

"Le Petit Prince" is an iconic book. From its illustrations to its cast of characters, the Prince teaches lessons of friendship, growing up, dreams and how to see with the heart.

And there's no better theater company to present "The Little Prince" than the Theater of the Dream, or Théâtre du Rêve, Atlanta's own francophone theater company.
