Sun, Earth, water, wind, landscape, stones, plants, animals, people, bees, tents, beehives, jam, honey…..

A durational performance? An installation with performative input? An original production, depending on where, when and with whom.

The bee colony as a single entity. The queen bee, the heart of the bee colony. Shared space, voice, visual experiences and various creative processes come together. What would it be like to understand ourselves as part of a huge superorganism like the planet Earth, or even the entire universe?

A tent in the landscape or a beehive into which people/bees fly, experiencing a shared space, voice, visual experiences and various processes that mirror the life of a bee colony and offer participants space to discover the parallels between the wildly different societies of humans and bees. The production offers spectators/participants an alternative to the anthropocentric viewpoint in which the human ego must assert itself in relation to the whole.

Bees explores the possibilities of staging a performance in the landscape without a connection to the electrical grid, using sunlight and solar energy, just like bees.

Audience: Adult, Children 3+
