In collaboration with Bijlmer Parktheater, From2 Productions presents:
A wondrous, musical performance suitable for everyone from 4 years old, centered around the age-old storytelling tradition of Anansi the spider.
Anansi has spotted the most delicious bananas ever hanging from a tree. He climbs all the way up, and then... they are snatched by the strong, giant Elephant. Anansi can't resist and challenges her to a game of tug-of-war. The winner gets to enjoy the tasty fruit. Elephant doesn't refuse the offer since she's the strongest in the forest, after all. But, of course, Anansi has already schemed up a clever plan to keep everyone guessing.
With an ingenious set and vibrant music, you'll be drawn into the story. The set transforms from an elephant to a whale and from a vast forest to Anansi's home, where he cunningly attempts to establish a banana empire. But will he succeed?
Based on the book by Iven Cudogham.
