In December 2010, a Tunisian street vendor set fire to himself, resulting in a wave of widely reported (r)evolutions. What effects do these images have on performers with roots in the Middle-East? How as an expat do you process the information that comes to you from those who stayed behind? How does the body react to violence and fear?
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 the physical edition until further notice. We hope that an in-person gathering for our festival can be held again in 2021.
