Announcing Anna Lindemann’s “The Colony”

Wondering what those ants on Bishop are all about? In DMD, we’ve been busy over the past three years making ant-inspired art! We’re now excited to invite you to the world premiere of the ant-inspired, art-science performance The Colony the weekend of September 6-8 at the Studio Theatre at UConn Storrs. The performance was conceived by DMD Professor Anna Lindemann and includes animations and video developed by DMD students and alums Sarah Shattuck, Allie Marsh, Jasmine Rajavadee, Ryan Glista, and Alex Rouleau.

The Colony is about sisterhood and the evolution of communication in two of the most social creatures on earth: humans and ants. Produced as part of AntU, The Colony ventures into speculative fiction and includes projected animations and imagery alongside live spoken and musical performance, all informed by scientific research on ant colonies.
