Introducing IJAPA, the Tortoise!!! Anansi and his friends are back with their annual family show of various folktales and puppetry!

Anansi and his friends are back, with new tales added, sharing with families folktales from a mixture of continents. Puppetry, storytelling, and drama are aimed to help your loved ones make better decisions. Spend time with the family and spend time with us.

ANANSI TALES FOR THE HOLIDAYS combines African, Caribbean, and African American folklore in interactive theatre, storytelling, and puppetry. Folktales are stories traditionally passed from generation to generation orally to teach a lesson, gain insight into 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 a part of the play from time to time throughout the performance, playing villagers, hornets, calabash, and animals.

{theatre}+{náfsi} FOR YOUTH is the educational and youth-oriented division of {theatre}+{náfsi}, a Black Repertory Theater Company. We illuminate the human condition through an African Diasporic (i.e. African -American, African, Afro-Latino, Afro-Caribbean, etc.) prism.   We aim to increase the consistent representation of African-American theatrical artists, plays, and develop audiences that value those experiences. We hope you will join us. Subscribe to our newsletter to find out our the latest projects. www.mpactoday.com  

*Náfsi means "soul" in the language of Swahili.
