DEAD PUPPET SOCIETY

Large floating bees have been arranged among the trees to inspire a sense of wonder in the natural world. HIVE MIND, a new creation by Dead Puppet Society, is a kinetic sculpture that brings micro insects to life at macro scale using movement, sound and light.  

HIVE MIND, presented by Sydney Living Museums, takes place inside the picturesque grounds of Vaucluse House. It is being presented alongside a range of bee-inspired public programs, including workshops, self-guided activities, tours and talks.  

Dead Puppet Society, an Australia production house and design company that combines old-school craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology, returns to the Sydney Festival following critically acclaimed seasons of Laser Beak Man (Sydney Festival 2020) and The Wider Earth (Sydney Festival 2018). 

For latest alerts and updates about attendance on the day, RSVP to the HIVE MIND Facebook event.
