A LA BOITE, CAMPBELLTOWN ARTS CENTRE & BLACK HONEY COMPANY PRODUCTION

One the Bear is the latest from the international award-winning team Black Honey Company. Two best-bear friends raising a ruckus against the dystopian rule of hunters, spit rhymes and fuse feminist hip hop, afropunk and global music to tell their tale. One and Ursula demand more for their tribe as they explore identity, friendship, exploitation and appropriation in a celebrity-obsessed world. It’s basically a documentary.

REVIEWS

“One the Bear is a stunning gathering of artistic talents and a timely allegorical warning about cultural commodification…” Realtime

“Installation artist Jason Wing has created a dynamic space, populating the stage with urban paraphernalia, garbage skips and rocks, all bearing sacred markings that blend with optikal bloc’s digitally generated constellations of stardust to complement our heroine’s journey to pink-and-green glory.” Realtime
