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.

Room of Lost Names (Kenya)

“M” is murdered and finds herself in Purgatory. To escape Purgatory she has a simple task: she must give the gods her name. But M’s violent murder by a powerful man and the subsequent cover-up means that M no longer has a name or knows her name. A vicious intentional and unintentional plot made up of rumours and innuendo has destroyed her name. To recover her name M embarks on the painful journey of retracing the steps and circumstances that led to her death.
