Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.

Ants at DKS Innlandet (Norway)

Ants is an interactive performance which brings children together to explore the landscape around them.

Ants as big as humans work together intently, collecting and placing hundreds of giant bread crumbs, and children are irresistibly drawn closer to find out how they can join in. Gradually a world of meaning unfolds, with children’s movement making lines and patterns, transforming public space and disrupting the everyday. Children choose how they interact with the big insects, becoming Ant-like creatures themselves and taking part in their world. This is an enchanting and unusual experience that everyone can enjoy at their own pace.

Polyglot is thrilled to announce an exciting partnership with DKS Innlandet (The Cultural Schoolbag), a program in Norway that ensures all students experience professional arts and culture. It is a one-of-a-kind, collaborative project between the national, regional and local levels of the cultural and education sectors, encompassing all schools in Norway.

Ants, which will be known as Maur, is being presented as part of the 2023 program in three regions. Polyglot Theatre is delivering this season in partnership with Rom for Dans.
