What is showHive?
From concepts and direction to choreography and theatrical design, showHive® delivers entertainment that syncs with trends which today’s sophisticated audiences expect.
showHive is a collective of visionary artists, craftsmen and designers working together to develop boundless and beautiful shows. Our work has been seen on the stages of major cruise lines, casinos, and theaters around the world.
Each showHive project begins its life in the minds of a group of development artists and designers. In the grand tradition of theatrical production, our creative process demands the collaboration of many disciplines, working in concert toward a unified goal.
While our approach to the creative process honors the rich history of theatrical arts, we are constantly exploring new ways to incorporate new entertainment ideas and trends. It is through this un-compromised dedication to detail, quality, and innovation that our work is able to touch the hearts of audiences. Only then does entertainment come to life.
