Anansi’s Big Big Adventure
The mischievous Anansi the Spider spots a great shiny disc in the forest near his home. Curious, and telling his six children he will only be a minute, he walks to the forest edge to find out what it could be. But they’re too busy arguing to notice. And the disc moves further into the trees—where panthers, snakes and wild animals lurk…
Anansi is lost. The disc is nowhere to be seen and danger is drawing near. Can his children work together, using their unique special powers, to find their father before it’s too late?
Using puppetry, music and dance, Anansi’s Big Big Adventure brings to life one of the great figures of African & Caribbean folklore, and tells a universal story of bravery, teamwork and finding your inner strength.
