The Goethe-Institut Cyprus, within the framework of the PASCH programme (Schools: Partners for the Future), presents the theatre performance for young people “Das liegt im Blut” (“It’s in the blood”), which will take place at The International School of Paphos on Sunday 10th October 2021 at 4.30 p.m.
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 mesmerising blend of humour, dance, music and storytelling.
Τhe actress takes the audience on a roller-coaster 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 many other pertinent issues.
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 “otherness” and diversity are no longer feared, but celebrated.
