Das liegt im Blut (It's in the blood)

Cyprus : Das liegt im Blut (It's in the blood)

Das liegt im Blut (It’s in the Blood) is the result of an eighteen month collaboration between Tete Adehyemma Dance Theatre (Ghana) and Cactus Junges Theater (Germany). A solo performance by Germany based Ghanaian actress Gifty Wiafe, who fills the stage with a unique and mesmerizing blend of humour, dance, music and storytelling.

Τhe actress takes the audience on a roller-coaster of a journey between cultures and continents, while she touches on many issues of universal relevance and interest, connecting the dots from deeply personal life events to questions of migration, culture and national identity, individual and corporate greed, environmental challenges, male and female viewpoints among others.

The audience is invited to “walk a mile in another person’s shoes” and experience the transformative power of the arts, when it comes to imagining and creating a world where “other-ness” and diversity are no longer feared but celebrated.

Dramaturgy: Petra Kindler
Direction: Barbara Kemmler
Performer: Gifty Wiafe
Choreography: Frank Sam
Lighting design-Sound: Henry Nyadiah
Assistant Director: Andy Striezel

Gifty Wiafe and Barbara Kemmler have been working together for more than a decade. At the beginning, Gifty was a teenager who had just arrived in Germany from Ghana; Barbara was a theatre director who worked with young actors. They now work together as partners. Both are interested in the cultural exchange between Europe and Africa, Ghana and Germany.
