Anansi stories: performances of the Laboratory

Category: Alternative

Design Statement

The Laboratory Performing Objects of Animation Theatre held a scenic research about Ananse, the African spiderman, between the years 2013 and 2016. This research was divided into two parts: performances realized in unconventional spaces and performances with shadow theater. In the World Stage Design I will present images (photos and videos) of some of these works: walking performers with Ananse's mask performing in public spaces of the city of Rio de Janeiro, and the shadow theater show "Anansi and the Box of Stories" presented for the first time in August 2016. Ananse is a important character by Ashanti culture, he is a mix of hero, trickster and storyteller. From the African Diaspora in the Americas, Anansi stories have multiplied as a form of cultural resistance to an oppressive system. Their stories aims for a capacity of adaptation to a new socio-cultural context, as well as a transgression of the social rules. The work of the Laboratory aims for an appreciation of the african-Brazilian cultural heritage, using music, dance and visual elements (as puppets, mask, costumes) by African origin, mixed with other artistic styles, as the psychedelic aesthetic.
