Family Fun with a mixture of African, Caribbean, and African American folklore presented in interactive theatre, storytelling, and puppetry.

WHAT'S IT ABOUT? A mixture of Youth and Adults weave these stories, with help from the audience and community guest readers. ANANSI TALES FOR THE HOLIDAYS is a mixture of African, Caribbean, and African American folklore presented 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} 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 who might want a closer look at the interactive action. We ask kids in the audience to come on stage to be a part of the play from time to time throughout the performance, playing with villagers, hornets, calabash, and animals.  

Our talented cast of Griot Artists(Storytellers), local playwright/mask maker Karen D. Culley, and director Reuben J. Tapp make this performance complete.

More about {theatre}+{náfsi} FOR Youth: {theatre}+{náfsi} FOR Youth is a youth outreach to provide a storied context for life's lessons. We produce and present artistic performances illuminating the human condition through the prism of people from the African Diaspora (i.e., African -American, African, Afro-Latino, Afro-Caribbean, etc.). 

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}.    Please visit mpactoday.com to learn more.
