A couple of years ago Progress Lab in Vancouver (a coalition of 11 theatre companies) produced Hive, a collaborative theatre event featuring 11 intimate performances for audiences ranging from one to twenty. The performances at Hive were site specific and occurred all over The Chapel, a former funeral home that is now a venue and an art gallery. The event was incredibly successful, and was re-imagined/re-produced for this year's Magnetic North Theatre Festival as Hive2.
Well, Brampton's Rose Theatre is giving the idea a go with B-Hive and The Ministry is going to be apart if it. Our piece, The Machine, follows two scientists as they unveil their latest invention for the first time. It's still early days right now, and the piece is very much in the initial stages of creation but we're pretty excited about it. I'll keep you posted.
