Ant Power

Ant Power

If you give a colony of ants a week and a pile of dirt they will transform it into skyscrapers in an ant-scaled city. Without a blueprint or a leader, thousands of insects moving specks of dirt create a complex structure together with parallel levels connected by a network of tunnels with heating and ventilation systems to provide home and shelter for their population. Millions of little individuals create a complex, fascinating, functioning society without a leader or a plan. It turns out that ants perform these complex tasks by obeying a few simple rules. It all results from local interactions between the individuals who are simply using their ant power and are just doing their jobs as ants in response to outside cues and each other which makes it possible that this amazing final structure and a complex society emerges without central coordination and leadership, even without the individual ants being aware of the great creation they bring into being. Because of this, ants are a popular source of inspiration for design in software engineering, robotics, industrial design, and other fields involving many simple parts working together to perform complex tasks.

In this workshop let them be an inspiration for the collaboration of us improvisors on stage.

Let them be our role models for working together on stage when we are using our improv power to create a piece of theatre from nothing.

So let´s focus on our true improv powers and let´s just simply do our job as improvisors and practice our best improv skills while we spend time on stage together.

Let´s truly listen to our fellow players

Let´s open up and look into each others eyes for real

Let´s unconditionally follow each other

Let´s honestly respond to our fellow players in every single moment of our connection

And at the end of the day let´s step aside and look back at the complex, fascinating pieces of theatre we left behind.

Stories which were permitted to happen on a true, honest, moment-to-moment basis. Scenes which emerged as an unintended result from nothing because we were not focusingon building a stories. Stories we didn´t know were happening while we were creating thembecause we were just doing what improvisors do.

This workshop emerged out of the 19th Seattle Festival of Improvisation in June 2015.
