Theatre workshop for children aged 6 to 12. Through play and improvisation, we will invite children to study insects, with a particular focus on the movement, social and spatial dynamics of insect colonies. What sound does a termite make? How does a bee fly? How does an ant orientate itself in an anthill?
The aim of the laboratory is to invite children to build their colony, their world, a shared space, using the mysterious system of insects as an example. The workshop includes a return installation/performance by the participants.
