Ants on a Log presents CURIOUS, a fun, feminist, eco-minded exploration of clean energy, community, and kids who have big ideas.
Curious encourages kids and their families to “think outside the pipeline” and get curious about other forms of energy beyond oil. The folky feminist musical tells the story of a 12-year-old girl who sees members of her community becoming sick due to the local oil refinery. When she hears of the refinery’s plans to expand, she begins to learn more and organizes her neighborhood. With the help of her songful community and a dancing pencil, she strives to make big change even in the face of some bigger and more powerful people.
Curious showcases Ants on a Log’s playful and timely advocacy, as well as the vibrant harmonies and clever lyrics that have propelled them into the national kids’ music spotlight. Their first album,You Could Draw the Album Art has been featured on WXPN’s Kids’ Corner as well as several other kids’ music programs and blogs.
“Playing music for children and other childlike people, their spirited harmonies and clever, concise songwriting will tickle the fancies of both children and adults alike. The folksy duo write music that songfully advocates for positivity, social justice, and silliness!” -Philadelphia Folksong Society
Curious is funded in part by a Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant.
