With typical panache and imagination, Artizani and Avanti Display collaborate on a walkabout performance and installation. Bees! is a multi-sensory experience in which audiences get up close and personal with our deluxe and sumptuous beehive.

In a secular ritual, the hive is carried shoulder high in a procession by two devotees of the esteemed bee. Once set down and consecrated, step forward: hear the bee! Feel the bee! Smell the bee! Taste the bee! And if you dare, put your eye up to the hive and see the bee! With a hilarious sting in the tail, this is a miniature installation with a huge visual impact.

Also available as an installation of six hives all hiding a unique interior world. The hives are tended by our ethereal beekeepers and kept passive by clouds of smoke, colourfully lit at night. Each hive contains a surreally imagined aspect of the secret life of bees, such as the bee cinema – did you know bees were massive fans of spaghetti westerns?
