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.
– Fusing music, song-speech, poetic text and movement, Seemia Theatre challenge the audience’s perception of ‘us and them’-
– We’re rocking, rocking way out to sea –
“Evros | The Crossing River” follows a young Syrian woman, Doaa, who dreams of a better life amongst a backdrop of war, terror and enduring love. Whilst planning her escape with her family, Doaa’s life changes when she meets Bassem.
We venture into the everyday of other families in extreme conditions and follow the performers as they ask “How can we walk in their shoes?”.
This immersive experience envelops you into the current refugee crisis playing with the idea of borders, challenging the idea of ‘us’ and ‘them’.
