The HIVE Performance Collective is thrilled to announce
HIVE 2021: Flight Paths, a series of theatrical journeys, from July 1-4, 2021. Flight Paths is a
collection of twelve micro-performances that take place digitally between you and an artist from
your own home, phone, or neighbourhood. Audiences can participate from anywhere in the
Flight Paths is a build your own adventure-style interactive journey, where each performance
invites you to participate in a unique way. Sorted into four paths, audiences can experience a
show by: Travel, Phone, Home, and Location. The paths will reimagine live performance as
they invite audience members to do the same. You may receive a call from a friendly group of
experts who will assess a part of your life, follow a set of instructions to physically lead you
down memory lane, or you may travel through your neighbourhood while imagining it as an
ancient Persian myth.
Performances under the Travel path will encourage attendees to navigate through any space of
your choosing, such as going for a walk in your neighbourhood. The Travel path is focused on
the act of journeying, rather than the destination. The Phone path will center the use of a cell
phone – it may mean receiving an intimate phone call, text message, or otherwise. Home path
performances are designed to be enjoyed from the comfort of your couch, bedroom, or any
other space that you call home. Finally, attending a Location path will guide you to a
non-specific geographical location, like a body of water, or a tree, and invite you to look at the
world differently from that point forward.
Each Flight Paths performance is a maximum of 15 minutes, and attendees may be able to
participate in up to three performances per hour from 2-5 PM PST. Attendees may
mix-and-match shows from different paths or see all of a single path. We encourage you to take
in all twelve performances over two or more days! Most performances are intended for all ages,
and are family-friendly.
The HIVE Performance Collective is composed of twelve British Columbia-based innovative
theatre companies and individuals. Flight Paths marks HIVE’s return after a hugely successful
venue take-over of Presentation House Theatre as part of Magnetic North Theatre Festival in
June 2019. For more information on HIVE’s collective of award-winning artists, please visit
Tickets are available via The HIVE Performance Collective website for free or by
