Based on the bee’s habitat, their way of life and existence, the dancers’ collective Fanclub investigate ecologies, ideologies and structures of be(e)ing and working together.
We live in an age of global warming and ecological crises. What does this mean in terms of ways of seeing and recognizing the world? Can the direction of our course change if we change our behavior and ways of being with each other and the world surrounding us? If we turn to other species – what can we humans learn?
BEE-ING is unfolded during four working periods in 2020 where Fanclub, together with invited guests from the field of biology, anthropology, beekeeping, sound- and light art, explores different formulations and approaches to the theme. The audience is continuously invited to take part in the process and the research culminates with a public worksharing in September 2020.
