The Kampala International Theater Festival is a 4-day festival organized each year in partnership between BAYIMBA Foundation and Tebere Arts Foundation as a platform that offers development of professionalism among theater practitioners and broadens access to Theatre by supporting and facilitating the presentation of Theatre productions.
This is achieved through the various workshops, jam sessions, productions and networking sessions that are programmed during the Festival.
The 7th edition is supposed to happen in November 2020 but due to Covid19 and how fast it spreads, we have decided to postpone it until further notice. Rest assured, we will continue to share more information in the coming months about how you can engage with us during 2020, as we look to an in-person gathering for our festival in 2021.
Black is a short play that depicts the frustration of a young African girl, Kisakye, who wants to return to her home country because she is fed-up of studying in a place and in system where black people are stereotyped, mistreated and have to endure all kinds of racism just because they are black. Kisakye believes that there is a difference between her and the other blacks around her. She is not another black with a past full of slavery and sad tales; she’s a proud African with home and a heritage.
