Self-proclaimed “Bee Queen,” Sara Mapelli, does what comes to her naturally: Dancing around topless with over 12,000 bees.
I think of this dance as a duet among many. The bees push with their powerful wings from each side of my body, I resist and then I let go and flow and move with them. It is a deep meditation and I feel the hive mind surround me, hold me, and expand my body on a cellular level. I am a healer, dancer, artist, builder of structures and bee keeper.
Imma be honest here, this comes off a wee bit BATSHIT for my tastes, but who am I to pee in the Bee Queen’s honey pot? The bees certainly look like they’re enjoying themselves during tea time.
