The Bees

The Bees is a collection of beautifully hand-made hives with copper roofs and corners.

Each one hides a unique, unexpected interior world. Some use high-spec digital technology, others rely on more traditional means.

Audiences wander amongst the honey-perfumed bee colony, occasionally cloaked in smoke, finding a variety of ways to view and interact with the different hives. In each hive, there is a surprising twist that challenges, charms and confounds expectations – you may find yourself looking into the vastness of space or being teased by a telescopic hive soaring into the air.
