This is a FREE event and no bookings are required.  

Council is pleased to present Bees by Polyglot Theatre - 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 park.

This is a FREE event and no bookings are required. Simply show up to the performance time that suits you in King George V Gardens on April 21, 22, 23 at 10am, 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3pm daily. Each 45 minute session starts with a short workshop followed by interactive play.

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 and vibrant pollen.

Bees uses ritual, non-verbal communication and the secret world of bee movement to provide a range of access points for children to participate.

The program is designed for children aged 4-11 years and their families.

 

Bees was developed through Polyglot's Generator program, with support from the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, and the Sidney Myer Fund.

This event is possible with funding from the Victorian Government’s COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Fund 2021.
