Ant Business

Can you hear the ants creeping and crawling? Can you smell when they communicate?
Ants actually make a lot of commotion on the planet, and near your feet – so let’s find out what they’re really up to.

Ant Business invites children aged 8-12 on a fascinating journey with stories, scientific knowledge from biology and brain research, and sound recordings from real ant hills. Together we find out what it means to be an ant, through senses, knowledge and taste.

We laugh and sprint away in disciplined rows with joy in our bodies while we learn about the supremacy of insects. Here, only the laws of the ants and the survival of the planet apply. Until we are allowed to listen to the sound of ants eating an apricot – and marvel in interactive respect.

Successful creepy-crawly theatre with wonderful curiosity
Curiosity is a gift. The performance theatre Secret Hotel is gifted with so much curiosity that it needs to share it – generously and carefully.”

Lisbeth Dahl – Teateravisen 2021

Ant Business is a dancing walking lecture into the world of the ants. Join us for a sensuous experience where science takes shape through theatre, play and dance.
