if a bee falls in(to) a box is a home performance package inspired by naturally occurring optical and audible phenomena.

The artists have come together remotely from their respective cities (Vienna and Bristol) to work within one another's fields - choreography, visual arts and sound. They have crafted and curated packages for two people to use at home after sundown. Inside the packages lie a collection of materials and the guidance to enter a sensuous home performance and conjure visions; at once scientific and magical, ancient and futuristic.

if a bee falls in(to) a box is the first of two parts. The second part of the work, if a bee falls in a forest, is a live, immersive performance installation, which will premiere at WUK performing arts in 2022.

Suitable for adults and age 12+

The package contains written guidance in both German and English, so reading skills are essential.
