You know, creativity knows no bounds. It’s true; although our shared human experiences of art tend to occur in galleries or theatres, artistic expressions themselves are largely ignorant of a particular time or place.

They can happen here, there, or somewhere you’d least expect – like in Lush on Sauchiehall Street, it seems.

Yes, rather ironically appearing at a retail outlet frequented by unimaginative gift buyers is a stand-out highlight of The Arches’ unique Behaviour festival.

Continuing for three nights is Stef Smith’s The Silence Of Bees – an intimate piece about a trio of female beekeepers.

This award-winning writer and director delicately explores the unspoken words, secret lives and entwining memories of her characters, while conveying the ecological importance of the little flying insects they deal with in their jobs.

Since the beginning of March, Behaviour’s programme of essential live performance has seen a rich variety of Scottish and international talent take their shows not only to The Arches stage, but also to shops, museums, parks and streets around Glasgow.

We’re truly fortunate to be able to enjoy one-of-a-kind gems like this cropping up until 29 April, when the festival’s eight-week run ends. Fringe? What Fringe?
