Ants is an interactive roving performance which has giant Ants bringing children together in a gentle and unusual landscaping project.
Faced with hundreds of giant bread crumbs and three big insects, the 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 wavering lines and patterns.
Ants is an enchanting investigation into the nature of work and children’s relationship with their environment.

We Built This City is a giant cardboard construction site which involves the whole family in building the cities and towns of their dreams. Thousands of cardboard boxes take over big, open public spaces and each child’s unique creation reflects the time and place of their immediate culture. The season ends with the city being shaken and stomped to the ground.
