Hive 2: you and the moon

June 2008
Great Northern Way campus

A featured event in the 2008 Magnetic North Theatre Festival in Vancouver

HIVE 2 took over 2 warehouse spaces at the Digital Media Centre for a 9-day marathon of perspective-rocking, intimate, outrageous, and eclectic performances by 11 independent B.C. theatre companies. Building on the success of the original HIVE, the member companies of Progress Lab were commissioned by the Festival through a grant from Arts Partners in Creative Development. Veda Hille curated 9 bands for the after-show party each night, and Glenn Alteen of Grunt Gallery brought some seriously live artists to the cabaret space. Our installation you and the moon used interactive video, animated illustration, wild shifts of scale, and one very surprising performer to tell a love story for an audience of one.
