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.

Wimbo Wa Nyonga

Wimbo na Nyonga

By Asha Salimu Mshana (Tanzania)

WIMBO WA NYONGO is a Kiswahili Stage Play about Tumaini, a woman, who is a representation of an “African woman” who for a longtime has been suffering from traditions that perpetuate patriarchy.

Tumaini fights against the patriarchy system adhering to the will given to her by her late mother. Her quest for equality makes her go through unimaginable challenges. Nevertheless, she fights on and even competes for a leadership post in her village.
