First Fortnight in partnership with Goethe- Institut Irland present
Gifty Wiafe, is a young woman from Ghana now living in Germany, who lights up the stage with her unique blend of humour, heart, wit and truth. She dances, tells stories, plays the drums and sings.
“Of course” – some Europeans quickly conclude – “that’s in her blood somehow, isn’t it?” But Gifty Wiafe begs to differ!
A modern intermediary between cultures and continents, she takes us on a roller-coaster of a personal and intercontinental journey.
“… courtesy of a wonderful script by Petra Kindler, Wiafe’s prowess at storytelling was evident as she conjured humorous anecdotes on diverse issues ranging from religion, imported food, visa problems, migration, gender issues, snow, traffic offences, e-waste, culture shock, traditions and spirituality.” [break]
“…a remarkably clever piece of comedy that reminds us of past experiences alongside issues that currently confront us.” [break]
“…thought – provoking without being preachy while exposing uncomfortable truths about the world.” Daily Graphic, Accra
