Sophie Bee's busy life is a happy buzz of pollen seeking (using flower power satnav), dancing with her fellow bees and making yummy honey, but when the worker bees begin to disappear, can Sophie use all her deductive powers to solve the case and save the hive?
This fun and intriguing honeybee murder mystery invites you to join the investigation and help the intrepid Sophie with her enquiries.
Staged in a tent outdoors, this is an interactive, multi-sensory experience that involves elements of sign, animation, projection and responsive captioning, making the show both accessible and dynamic.
Through vibration effects children can feel the buzzing of the bees, and are invited to join in the 'waggle dance' that is used by bees to explain where pollen and nectar can be found in the outside world - a cross between GPS and disco!
The show is accompanied by workshops and activities for children and their families.
Suitable for ages six and over.
All performances include integrated captioning and a combination of BSL interpretation, Sign Suppported English and stage sign. Assistance is also available on request for blind and visually impaired visitors, including guiding and narration.
Tin Bath create innovative and dynamic theatre that uses new technology creatively to produce work that is accessible to deaf audiences and entertaining to all. 'Bee Detective' is their first show for children.
