Carole Hayman words
We all have dark thoughts, but some are deadly dark.
Combining violent real life crimes with magical realism; The Hive shows a world in which forensic doctors, barristers and detectives meet Hansel, Gretel and Cinders in the otherworldly forest of Arden. From grim tales to the real thing, we are fascinated with violent crime, on TV, in the media, in films, and particularly when the perpetrators are women.
‘Women kill within a small area. Where they have most influence – within their domestic coral. You might say… (he smiles) women kill close to the hive’.
This is the first full performance of The Hive, an opera as beguiling as it is shocking. The performance will be presented as a Scratch Performance, where audience members will have the opportunity to offer ideas and give feedback to help develop the performance.
