Bee Story (ARC Circus And Cluster Arts)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2022

Another entry in the crowded field of non-verbal Australian physical theatre shows for kids, ‘Bee Story’ is distinguished by some light green messaging as the bees in question try to rebuild their hive following bushfires, and also by the presence of live music. The standard lifts, flips and circus capers – all present and correct, natch – are rendered all the more impressive during the sequence of the same in which the ‘Queen Bee’ plays the flute rather well whilst being flung about the place. There is a pleasingly cartoonish vibe coming from performers, the set and the soundtrack, making for an all-in lovely show, well capable of creating a buzz (I’m so sorry…).

Underbelly George Square, until 28 Aug.
