The Colony

  • The Studio Theatre 802 Bolton Road Storrs, CT 06269 (map)

An art-science performance on social life by Anna Lindemann

A show about sisterhood and the evolution of communication in two of the most social creatures on earth: humans and ants.

In this performance, as Mona struggles to reconnect with her estranged sister Hennie, she turns to the ant colony for inspiration. With more than 500,000 ant sisters migrating, raiding, and even reproducing as one superorganism, an army ant colony appears to Mona as the paragon of successful social existence. Informed by scientific research on ant colonies, The Colony ventures into speculative fiction and includes projected animations and imagery alongside live spoken and musical performance.
