IT’S IN THE BLOOD

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.

The play’s Director, Barbara Kemmler, founded Cactus Junges Theater 25 years ago and has been its Artistic Director ever since. Her main priority has always been on inter cultural work and on professional engagement within international contexts and project collaborations, i.e., Congo, Kenia, Ghana, Norway, Poland and other countries.
