Ants Performance at Walker Art Center

AntsatWalker2017webSensory-Friendly Performance: Ants
Friday, August 4 at 11 a.m.

Walker Art Center
725 Vineland Place
Minneapolis, MN

Discover the power of collaborative play with the interactive roving performance of Ants by Australia-based Polyglot Theatre. This task-oriented performance is a delight to see unfold, as children work hard to communicate with the Ants and each other to help search for crumbs. The crumbs, hundreds of them, form beautiful wavering lines, transforming a space with constantly changing patterns. Ants is an enchanting investigation into the nature of work and children’s relationship with their environment. (Photo: “Ants by Polyglot Theatre" by William Hall)

Join us at the Walker Art Center for a free sensory-friendly performance of Ants. To create a supportive performance for families and children with sensory sensitivities, the sensory-friendly Ants performance will include: lowered noises and sounds; performers have training and prior experience working with children with sensory sensitivities; extra staff support; and participants are welcome to talk and move around as much as they please.
