BEES ! The Colony

Fri 20 Feb 2015

Part of the Without Walls Weekend

Sun 3 May, 12 noon - 5pm, Woodingdean Central Park
Mon 4 May, 12 noon - 5pm, Saltdean Oval

Join us from 12 noon each day for a packed afternoon of all these new and exciting outdoors shows. Bring a picnic and the family.Buzzing with panache and imagination, this combination of walkabout performance and installation engages all the senses as it investigates the complex relationship humans have with bees.

Two devotees of the esteemed bee process a deluxe hive with the greatest care and ceremony before calling you forward to hear, feel, smell, taste and – if you dare – put your eye up to the hive and See the Bee! There’s a hilarious sting in the tail to this promenade experience.

On a larger scale, an installation of six hives hides a unique interior world. Wander amongst the honey-perfumed colony and discover various ways of viewing and interacting with the unique worlds inside the hives. Each contains a surprising conceptual twist that challenges, charms and confounds expectations.
