A Bee Story - Bondi Festival arrow-leftarrow-rightmagnifying-glassshare-iconshopping-cart-iconstar-iconuser-icon


“We’re so excited to welcome back Robbie Curtis, after his incredible Bondi Festival debut Warm Skin at Bondi Feast in 2018. Robbie and Liz are mind-bogglingly talented – if you missed this circus show at Sydney Festival, now is your chance.” – Rachel Chant, Festival Director

A buzzy and adventurous physical theatre work for children and families celebrating native Australian flora and fauna and exploring ways we can work together in sticky situations.

Merging circus, acrobatics, dance and live music, A Bee Story is an enchanting and educational show that explores issues surrounding sustainability, environmentalism and community. Join our Queen Bee and Worker Bee on a gravity-defying journey through the intricate and endangered life of native bees that hums with heart, honey and humanity.

Created and directed by Robbie Curtis (Cirque du Soleil, Circus Oz, the Australian Ballet), with co-creator, musician and performer Lizzie McRae as Queen Bee, A Bee Story makes its way to Bondi Fesival direct from its hugely successful Sydney Festival premiere.
