Anansi and the Poinsettia tree

This is the tale of one of the most important and beloved characters of West African and Caribbean folklore. Anansi is a strategist, not a trickster and the folklore still plays an important role in storytelling and the formation of morals.

Anansi continues to be very relevant today as through theatre art it is an important way of building community and providing a positive way of relieving feelings of negativity and frustration.
