Days of our Hives by Alanta Colley

This event has passed!

My name is Alanta. I’m a beekeeper. The main thing that you keep when you keep bees is other people away. Even my bees left, once. I guess I’m a bee loser. I think I’d quite like it if you came to hear my tale about bees, wasp heat death, and friendship. You know, if you’re in to that sort of thing. Days of Our Hives is the tale of Alanta’s adventures and misadventures in urban beekeeping.

After fleeing from a swarm in the Czech republic Alanta turned her fear into fascination and is now a proud member of Melbourne’s urban beekeeping community; removing swarms from her neighbour’s kitchen, sharing bee trivia and upsetting people by explaining honey is, in fact, bee vomit. Days of our Hives combines stand-up, storytelling and scientific revelations about the weird and wonderful world of bees. It’s a master class in ways to cook a wasp, strategies to placate irate neighbours and what to do when you literally have a bee in your bonnet.

Returning to FRINGE WORLD an entirely sold out season of her debut solo show Parasites Lost at last year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Alanta’s nerdy concoction of evidence-based comedy and personal confessions has been warmly received across Australia and internationally.
