THE DEPARTURE OF THE ANT

kunstZ // Toneelhuis // hetPaleis

_VDE2501 (c) Kurt Van der Elst.jpg

Not far from the edge of the forest is the house of the ant. 

The door is open, the room is deserted. 

The ant is gone! 

The message spreads through the forest like wildfire. 

The ant is gone for good. 

Will the ant come back? 

Is he angry? 

It wouldn't have exploded after all! 

Or has he turned into something else?  

What happens to you when a friend leaves and you stay behind?  

Artistic director of Toneelhuis Guy Cassiers directs and edits Toon Tellegen's book The departure of the ant for this performance about leaving, missing and being missed. ​
