An online theatre experience about the infamous trickster spider.
Created and directed by Justin Audibert
Inspired by the 2019 five-star hit show, Anansi the Spider, about the infamous mischief-maker and master spinner of yarns, Unicorn have adapted these classic West African and Caribbean tales for Unicorn Online. Made with their film partner, Illuminations, Unicorn have creatively responded to the current situation – the cast filmed themselves in their own homes so that they can bring them to yours!
The free Anansi videos are accompanied by free creative learning resources for teachers to use with pupils aged 4 – 8 to explore the Anansi tales and their place in Black history and culture.
As part of Unicorn Online, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Unicorn are offering a range of free online theatrical experiences that we hope will be enjoyed by children across London, the UK and beyond.
Anansi the Spider Re-spun is free to watch on our YouTube channel until 31 March 2021.
