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.
Coleman Otunga, an outstanding 16 year old writer from Saint Mary’s College Kisubi, highlights about his passion for the Arts and telling stories.
His play, ‘Waiting for March’ was selected out of ten plays at the end of the 2017 Young people’s mentorship program held under #KITF.
It is a story of desperation and hope. A young boy is diagnosed with a terminal disease and he has been given a limited time to live. While his mother struggles to find the money to seek for his treatment scheduled for March, his older brother starts to communicate with him as a penpal who is also terminally ill, whilst hiding his real identity. Will he live to see March?
This play will be presented as a reading directed by Achiro P. Olwoch at #KITF2017
