We have arrived in Brazil and the first performance of Ants was a hit at Australia Now 2016 Festival!
I had some beautiful moments with children as they became ants and created a far reaching pathway that snaked down the cobblestone lane at SECO Pompeia. This is the first time i have performed the show in a country that speaks a language other than English and was so excited to see that the work really does cross that language barrier.
A particular moment towards the end of the show was when us three Ants crouched down in our resting position rubbing the backs of our hands together. A group of about 10 children sat with us and did the same, then offered a little conversation with the fingertips tapping each other.
