WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

ANANSI TALES FOR THE HOLIDAYS is a mixture of African, Caribbean, and African American folklore presented in an interactive theater, storytelling, and puppetry. Folktales are stories that are traditionally passed from generation to generation orally to teach a lesson, gain insight on specific situations or as a pass-time.

{theatre}+{náfsi} for YOUTH shares these tales with the whole family showing "brains" is always a great option when dealing with obstacles. This interactive production further enhances and frames the holiday season as a time of communal sharing.

SPECIAL KIDS INTERACTIVE SEATING

ANANSI TALES FOR THE HOLIDAYS has special seating for kids that might want a closer look at the interactive action. Kids will be asked to be apart of the play from time to time throughout the performance, playing villagers, hornets, calabash, and animals.

*Náfsi means soul in Swahili, therefore, our name is also our mantra, Theater with Soul! "We tell compelling stories centered in the Black experience, making theater accessible to groups that often feel left out of the conversation," says Reuben J. Tapp, artistic director of {theatre}+{náfsi}.
