Poetry in Performance
Dzifa writes and performs poetry on the page and on the stage and has done so in many print and performance contexts - museums, galleries, pubs, cemetaries, schools and many others. Her poetry practice is typically interdisciplinary and she often collaborates with artists from other disciplines. The following is a selection of some of her poetry performances.
Sometimes, Dzifa is called on to host or chair literature events produced by various organisations such as the following:
"Dzifa was possibly for me the highlight of the evening. A real orator who was able to recite her works from memory and used her whole body in expressing the words. This was for me, the definition of poetry; irrespective of whether you connected to the content or use of language, the whole performance for me embodied what true poetry should be. True distinction between writing and poetry in my opinion with a real feeling of the writer’s input, passion and being."
