A Bee Story

12 - 13 Apr

A uniquely Australian show buzzing with gravity defying adventure.

Internationally recognised local acrobat and dancer Robbie Curtis (ex Circa, Cirque du Soleil, Circus Oz, the Australian Ballet) brings this celebration of native flora and fauna to Wollongong to remind us how to work together in any sticky situation!

Fly along with Queen Bee and Worker Bee in their intricate world as they rebuild a home after their hive is destroyed by bushfire. A kaleidoscopic blend of circus, acrobatics, dance and live music, this gravity-defying and educational show buzzes with heart, honey and messages of sustainability and community.

Relaxed Performance

The performance on Tuesday 13 April, 10am is designed to welcome people who benefit from a more informal performance environment for a range of real life reasons, including young children and people living with Autism.

There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and small changes may be made to the light and sound effects.
