What’s happening? Ants the size of people occupying the school yard? And they collect… breadcrumbs the size of whole loaves?
Ants is an interactive and spectacular dance performance where each performance is unique and adapted to the outdoor space it is performed in. The audience collaborates with the ants, gets various tasks and maybe even joins in a little ant dance.
The performance Ants was produced by Polyglot Theater in 2012 and has since played to thousands of children in Australia in public spaces; in parks, squares, shopping centres, airports and museums. Maur is a further development of Ants, adapted to Norwegian schools and The cultural school bag. Rom for dans has had professional and artistic responsibility for the development of the Norwegian version, and is the producer in Norway. DKS Innlandet and DKS Oslo have been driving forces to bring the production to Norway and have contributed funds to realize the project.
