The Secret Life of Bees is a series of two musical performances with ‘Meet Me at the Albany’ and the Rachel Macmillan Nursery.

About this Event

The Secret Life of Bees is a series of two musical performances with ‘Meet Me at the Albany’ and the Rachel Macmillan Nursery, both based in Deptford. Carline has worked with Sacha Thomas and Rachel Gildea to create a 20-minute song, movement and spoken word performance based on the life of bees with flamboyant costume and props.

This performance will also show at the local arts festival Deptford X, in September 2019.

This project is in collaboration with Meet Me at the Albany and The Rachel MacMillan Nursery.

BIOGRAPHIES

Meet Me at the Albany is an all-day arts club for the over 60’s quite unlike anything that has come before. Based at South East London’s Albany arts centre, an all year programme of events creates opportunities for people to meet new friends and try out a whole range of new activities and experiences. Meet Me at the Albany takes place every Tuesday and is co-produced by Entelechy Arts and the Albany.

The Rachel Macmillan Nursery opened in 1914 in the heart of Deptford community. They are thought to be the first ‘Open Air’ Nursery School in England.

Rachel Gildea is an independent dance artist doing socially engaged work in diverse communities. She is a Co-Director of BLINK Dance Theatre. She has a BA Dance and Culture (Surrey University) and an MA in Applied Theatre (Goldsmiths University).

Sacha Thomas is a professional singer and songwriter from South London who joined the project through The Albany’s Young Creatives Programme.
