Where grevillea's grow and basil blooms, Amelie Ecology brings you the INSECT CABARET!

Cross-pollinating research as an ecologist with musical theatre and a ukulele, Amelie Ecology brings life to the life sciences with this participatory musical that invites human bee-ings of all ages to explore the world as native bees…

Dr Amelie Vanderstock (Amelie Ecology) is an ecologist, educator, and musician with a PhD in pollinator ecology. Amelie researches the role of community gardens for pollinating insect biodiversity. She designs educational programs that connect youth with local ecology. Amelie facilitates workshops on native bee diversity and ecology, as well as working as a native stingless beekeeper and researcher.

Inspired by her studies, Amelie writes original Ecology PoP music and has performed at festivals, schools and in communities across Australia, Japan, and Europe. Her music integrates musical theatre, ukulele folk-pop and environmental education into a quirky duo kids act starring two native bees. Dr Amelie Vanderstock performs with multi-instrumentalist Gabriella Brown (Gailla) in their latest interactive musical ‘The Insect Cabaret’.

Their show invites human bee-ings of all ages to buzz as blue banded bees, to grow from seeds into tall trees, and to sing as a choir of bacteria... Always with a magnifying glass and ukulele in hand, Let’s BEE Scientists!
