To Bee Queen

LadyCocktail (Be)

Acrobatic debate and liberating trapeze.

“We are in a beehive, the Queen arrives among her bees (the members of the audience) for an emergency union meeting.
The bees are on strike, they demand a fair redistribution of royal jelly for the entire hive …

On the program, acrobatic debate and liberating trapeze.

How will this queen of questionable nobility cope with the revolt of the plebs?”


Lady Cocktail is a circus company founded in 2011 by Anna Blin, Violaine Bishop and Lola Ruiz, three swinging trapeze artists who all attended the Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque in Brussels (ESAC). Their first opus “Les Filles du 2ème” premiered in March 2012 in Brussels. The company then embarked on an adventure that took them to several countries of the world (Belgium, France, Italy, Slovakia, Zimbabwe, Romania, Spain, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland… ).

In 2018 the company creates “Pub Show Urbain”, together with the French street theater company Du Grenier au jardin.
It’s now the turn for “To Bee Queen”, solo by Lola Ruiz, which will see the light in spring 2021.
