The world feels strange right now and the shadows can be scary, but sometimes the best things can happen when we stop and have the space to be creative. The world has slowed down, the skies are clearing, the seas are calming and nature is reclaiming its place. That’s pretty magical.
The themes of Go Tell the Bees appear more relevant than ever right now - our connection to each other as communities; our connection to ourselves through nature and the importance of taking care of and listening to the world around us.
You have already helped TEAM with so many important decisions around the show - from location, to themes, to storyline and without your input, our work would be impossible to do. We still want to be able to work with you to continue to make this a show to be remembered.
We had hoped to be able to be with you all to do this face to face. We had hoped to be partying with you at festivals, creating art in your community centres, drawing inspiration from the children of Pembrokeshire by visiting their classrooms & clubs, letting our imaginations run riot with all of you on Pembrokeshire's beautiful beaches, mountains, forests, castles and towns - and we will still do that, just not yet.
For now, it's time to re-think and to approach things differently so that we get through this chaos together and emerge safe, happy and healthy on the other side.
We still want the party to happen and we still need you to help us get there...
Over the coming weeks, we will be releasing online videos asking you to get involved in a number of ways - there will be opportunities to be creative, to share your imaginative skills, to sing, dance, learn, write, be inspired and for you to continue to inspire us. Now is the time to hunker down and to be safe, but it is also a time to share and to join with others (albeit remotely) in collective moments of joy - until the storm passes.
Our first video will be released on Earth Day, 22nd April - we can't wait to share it with you!
