Interactive Children’s Performance
Bees by Polyglot Theatre (Australia) is a joyful interactive work in which children are welcomed into a world of community, communication, wonder, and imagination.
Explore a buzzing, humming hive of activity, as three human-sized Bees busy themselves in the creation of a community alongside children who transform into bees as they play. The bees are fascinating, strange, and beautiful, traversing invisible pathways and mapping delicate patterns across the performance space.
Inspired by the mysterious life and work of bees, this re-imagining of public space involves the slow uncovering of an intricate unseen world. Children are immersed in the sounds, shapes, and scents of the bee world, from their familiar buzz to honeycomb houses. Bees uses ritual, non-verbal communication, and the secret world of bee movement to provide a range of access points for children to participate.
