Please submit the following information:

  • A completed entry form
  • A short biography of the lead artist (max. 800 words) with a recent headshot.
  • A one page statement clearly stating why you want to participate in the festival with the project you are proposing. Please indicate if your project has been a part of any other workshops or festivals.
  • A presentation of your work: a copy of the script and a short video of its production if available or any other visuals that speak to your work. Please ensure that your submission includes 2-3 high resolution images and a 1-2 minute video for promotional purposes.
  • A technical rider/data sheet that includes everyone expected to participate in the production.

Please email your submission materials to info@kampalainternationaltheatrefestival.com and to info@tebere.org by 30th June 2019. Kindly submit all the forms and text in one PDF document.

We will confirm receipt of your submission and assess your application. By the end of August 2019 you will be informed about the status of your application. Please note that we will be offering very limited rehearsal time. Therefore, your production needs to be ready for staging should you be selected to participate in the festival.

What we offer:

  • A modest performance fee to participating artists.
  • For artists from outside Uganda, ground transportation and modest accommodation.

You are encouraged to source for support to cover airfare, visa, incl. insurance. Teams  selected to participate will receive a formal invitation to facilitate the solicitation for such support.

We thank you for your interest in participating in the Kampala International Theatre Festival and look forward to reading your submissions!
