Queen B: a new work of honeybee futurism
ALONE WE SURVIVE BUT TOGETHER WE THRIVE
The year is 2121
Honeybees are extinct
Now the only hives
are the ones that humans have built for themselves
Its not the next revolution - its the one after
102 years into the future, cities have sealed themselves under holographic domes to protect themselves from the inhospitable climate. Yet, when the robo-bee population begins to die off like their honeymaking ancestors, the fate of this new society rests upon the fading memories of the last living beekeeper, a (former?) revolutionary who goes by the name Queen B.
Conceived & written by Elle Thoni, given life by a mulit-talented ensemble, and buzzing with the sonic imagination of Dameun Strange, QUEEN B is a new outdoor play dripping with honeybee futurism.
