Anansi stories

I am always on the look out for stories to perform...and 

Anansi the Trickster spider is a great story to perform especially in Tandem.

This character of Jamaican origin, is a spider, but upto all kinds of tricks as he tries to become a human in many ways...

Anansi and How wisdom Spread is a great story, with multiple versions available, each ending in a different way. The story can be performed with a nice African chant to begin with...

These stories can also be adapted as sensory stories..."Why Anansi has Thin legs" is a great story to tell with sensorial material
