Max up!

The fable of the industrious ant

Max up! is an animated youth performance about performance pressure, global inequality, loneliness, anxiety and eternal growth. A fable lets us follow a diligent ant who wants to be good but ends up running for its life. The diligent ant goes to school. But the heart beats wildly in the body. What’s wrong? It just wanted to be happy…

The performance is a co-production with actress Signe Kærup Dahl and new drama by play writer Alexandra Moltke Johansen.

“The young people are each struggling with their own things, but I hope they feel that we are opening something inside them, that we are planting something that in the long run can give them courage and strength to act more freely in the world.”
