Anansi and the Sky God
Saturday Feb. 17, 9:30 a.m.
This Peanut Butter & Jam production in GPAC's Black Box Theatre is a classic West African folk tale brought to colorful life by New Ballet Ensemble. A soundtrack of African drums and melodies accompanies a dramatic narrator who tells the story of Anansi’s quest to possess all the stories known in the world, though they are owned by the seemingly all-powerful Sky God. Throughout Anansi’s action-packed odyssey, each character has their own style of movement, from the Sky God’s traditional West African dance, to a ballerina Fairy, the Python’s modern dance, and a Hip Hop Hornet! Come ready to laugh!
