Faced with three big insects and hundreds of oversized breadcrumbs, children are irresistibly drawn in and must figure out what the Ants want them to do.
Ants is an interactive performance which has giant Ants bringing children together in an unusual landscaping project. Faced with three big insects and hundreds of giant breadcrumbs, children are irresistibly drawn in and must figure out what the Ants want them to do. Gradually, a world of meaning unfolds, illustrating the human desire for order by transforming any public space with lines and patterns. Ants is an enchanting investigation into the nature of work and children’s relationship with their environment.
For this engagement, Polyglot Theatre is working in partnership with Inlet Dance Theatre to deliver Ants.
Polyglot Theatre is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
