With wholesome earnestness and fantastical thinking, ANTS bring to light important reflections from a pursuit of an unspoken utopia.
We formed in 2020 during our collective MA/MFAs in Advanced Theatre Practice at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, in the eye of the pandemic.
The theatre we create transforms spaces, advocates analogue and challenges audiences. We take that which may seem pointless and pursue it until it becomes poignant.
We are a group of six artists from across the world who have come together to seek that which is most sought; pointed pointlessness.
Much like ants, we work together as one to build worlds; merging fantasy and reality to bring people together and provoke autonomous thought.
We are based in London, but have roots across the world. We come from England, Scotland, China, South Korea and Catalonia.
Our work is usually created through playing with ideas, prompts and provocations, patiently repeating them in order to find what wants to be said without actually saying it.
