Who are you, Who am I?

  • Labyrinth 53 Amstelveenseweg Amsterdam, NH, 1075 VT Netherlands (map)

Sunday 9 July Wajipha Chongwe, storyteller, musician and visual artist performs at Labyrinth. She integrates different art disciplines to give expression to her inside and outside world. She is has a story to tell that started with her own mixed background and family experience of growing up in Zambia and Australia, confronted with the constant question raised 'where you from' feeling to be in a no men's land, but still staying strong. She started to tell her story about her life called Talisa Story.

Wajipha developed a program of performances exploring cultural identity and how her own identity has been influenced by her experiences. Wajipha’s holistic view of artistic expression works in tandem with her belief that music and art are ultimately intertwined and meant to be shared.

The performance will be held in English.
