Anansi Re-Spun

We produced three 15 minute films for digital release that were inspired by the Unicorn Theatre's 2019 show, Anansi the Spider

Inspired by the Unicorn Theatre’s 2019 five-star hit show, Anansi the Spider, about the infamous mischief-maker and master spinner of yarns, Anansi Re-Spun adapts these classic West African and Caribbean tales for an online audience. The three-part series is a creative response to the testing situation of 2020 as the cast filmed themselves in their own homes during lockdown.
★★★★★ ‘The infectious energy infused into every aspect of the story allows the performers to transcend the screen, delivering an unbeatably fun and fresh experience … it radiates pride and inclusivity.’ A Younger Theatre on episode 1.
