Bee Detective

In parks and squares across the UK this summer, children will be invited to step into the inner sanctum of a bee hive to help solve a honey bee murder mystery as Sophie Bee, champion forager, turns detective to track down the honey bees when they go missing from the Queen Bee's birthday party. Bee Detective is an interactive, multisensory adventure. The action is both spoken and signed, with projected animation and creative captioning making the show both accessible and dynamic. Through vibration effects children will be able to feel the buzzing of the bees, and will be 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. The project is one of the twelve new commissions for Unlimited, the ground-breaking London 2012 Cultural Olympiad programme that celebrates arts and culture by disabled and deaf artists on an unprecedented scale. The only children's show of all the Unlimited commissions, Bee Detective is created by Sophie Woolley, who is deaf, and is designed for both deaf and hearing children aged six upwards. Bee Detective is also part of the London 2012 Festival, the spectacular 12-week nationwide celebration running from 21 June until 9 September 2012 bringing together leading artists from across the world with the very best from the UK.
