Life in the colony is turned upside down when bees start mysteriously disappearing and SOPHIE BEE (to be played by Sophie Woolley) turns detective as she and her young audience join forces to uncover the threat to the hive and find out just why bees are so important to humans.
Featuring animations by James Merry, vibration effects to represent bee buzzing,and bee "waggle dance" choreography that everyone can join in with, the show encourages the audience to play detective and discover why Sophie Bee's hive is under threat.
Staged in a tent, this fast paced and funny murder mystery will evoke the sights and sounds of a hive through inventive new technology, animation and creative captioning, making the show both accessible and dynamic. This is an interactive, multi-sensory show for deaf and hearing audiences that is spoken, captioned and signed.
Written and performed by Sophie Woolley, directed by Gemma Fairlie, and produced by Michelle Owoo this production is supported by Emergency Exit Arts and the mentorship of Oily Cart.
