The Peasant Prince

YOU HAVE YOUR SECRET DREAMS. FOLLOW THEM. MAKE THEM COME TRUE.

“In order to fly, you have to be free” Li Cunxin

Monkey Baa brings Li Cunxin’s autobiography Mao’s Last Dancer to the stage. First published as a children’s picture book, The Peasant Prince tells Li’s story from when, aged 10, he was plucked from rural China to attend a ballet academy, leaving behind everything and everyone he knew, including his beloved parents.

Years of training and his steely focus enable Li to transform into a giant of international dance, his courage and resilience central to this moving story.
