Anansi and the Halfling

Now through 11/17/2018 | Annex Theatre

Theatre Capitol Hill/Central District

A young black woman desperate to find herself embarks on a mystical journey of discovered identity, ancient truth, and incredible fun. African storytelling has many forms. Ancient wisdoms were passed down through song, dance and (often comical) metaphorical re-tellings. Anansi and the Halfling strives to bring those storytelling mediums to light in a modern way through the experiences of a young, black millennial. As the story snakes through a college classroom, a mystical story realm, and the home of the gods themselves, puppetry, drumming, and movement are as crucial to the storytelling as the words.
