  • + 14 years

The story of an encounter between an insect and a human being, which will irreversibly change both of their lives.

The play tells the story of a queen bee who, as a result of the toxicity of pesticides, has lost her memory and no longer knows how to return to her hive. In her attempt to find her way home she meets an actor dressed as a bee. The actor, faced with a complex work situation, has agreed to become a honey promoter. Moved by the bee's desperation, he sets out on a journey with the insect to make her return home. However, throughout the journey, he will find much more than just a beehive.

Una Historia de Abejas is the story of an encounter between an insect and a human being that will irreversibly change both of their lives.

Ñeque Teatral

The company

Ñeque Teatral was formed in 2012 as the result of an encounter between individuals with the shared desire to develop creative theatrical and musical languages. Their topics of interest combine art, pedagogy, science and ancestral topics. This group of actors-musicians with long experience in bands and theater companies, based between Pucón and Temuco, has since then participated in theater festivals and toured the country with educational purposes. They collaborate with schools and have innovated using pedagogical booklets as material of artistic mediation for their shows.

—Because Ñeque Teatral has a long trajectory mixing theater, music, science and ancestral elements. It carries out relevant educational work with audiences and creates pedagogical booklets as artistic mediation tools.

—Because the play allows us to learn more about the role of bees in the life of the planet. The dramaturgy was developed from an ecological, scientific, territorial and personal point of view, after a period of research on bees.
