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.

Tropical Fish (Uganda)

An adaption of A short Story Collection by Doreen Baingana

This performance of an award-winning short story traces a young “campus girl’s” discovery of the power of her sexuality in an affair with an older white businessman in Kampala. What starts off as a fun escape from her ordinary life and dull future becomes a painful exploration of her worth as a woman, a black woman. What does she lose in exchange for “bubble baths and a gin-and-tonic life”?
