Ants @ Xintiandi Festival 2019

May 30, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - June 2, 2019 @ 5:30 pm

Ants is an interactive roving performance which has giant Ants bringing children together in a gentle and intriguing landscaping project.

Faced with hundreds of giant bread crumbs and three big insects, children are irresistibly drawn in to discover what theAntswant them to do. Gradually a world of meaning unfolds, illustrating the human desire for order by transforming any public space with wavering lines and patterns, crossing adult lines and disrupting the everyday.

Ants is an enchanting investigation into the nature of work and children’s relationship with their environment.
