Banquet for bees is a buzzing performance, where performing arts meets research. Come as you are or bring kids. The piece is from 8 years and up.
The performers are guiding the guests, who receives sensorical experiences. Around a banquet table, there will be a menu consisting of elements from the bees’ world. This will be served together with bee dance and nerdy bee knowledge.
Together we observe the soil, air, vegetation and insects, while we dive into the bees’ universe – their joys and challenges. Banquet for bees is both about the honey bees and the wild bees – two areas of the bees’ world, which in these years are referred to as each other’s contradictions.
The piece is co-produced with Pro Progressione (HU).
