BZZ BZZ - DADA DA BEE
Dansens Hus, Oslo 2013
Two bees hatch from their pupae. Their tasks are to clean, maintain, build and defend their bee house. With comedic scenes and Dadaistic sound poems and a pompous, self-absorbed and singing queen bee, the beehive will be the backdrop for some very strange incidents.
Nature, both as reality and metaphor, is a key element
in «BZz BZz – DADA da bee», as a direct metaphor for birth, growth, interaction, and development. Surreal moments are created through visual auditive and choreographic means.
