Description

Gifty Wiafe, a young woman from Ghana now living in Germany, lights up the stage with her unique blend of humour, heart, wit and truth. She dances, tells stories, plays 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.
