6th EDITION OF THE KAMPALA INTERNATIONAL THEATRE FESTIVAL
This edition of the festival is led by the Tebere Arts Foundation, under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director, Asiimwe Deborah Kawe. Alongside her is Karishma Bhagani, Associate Artistic Director of Tebere Arts Foundation, Associate Producer Aganza Kisaka, and Faisal Kiwewa of Bayimba Cultural Foundation.
KITF was born out of an exciting relationship with the Sundance Institute East Africa and its support of playwrights and other theatre makers from Eastern Africa through annual ‘lab’ residencies in East Africa and elsewhere. Over the years, KITF has become a space that encourages performances and post-performance dialogue that are about forging and holding connections, challenging taboos, and celebrating differences. The 2019 edition of the festival explores new genres from musical theatre to puppetry, to discuss complex themes of war, displacement and self-identity.
The 6th Edition of Kampala International Festival is supported by principal partners; Tebere Arts Foundation, Sundance Institute, Bayimba Cultural Foundation, DOEN Foundation, The British Council, The European Union and Africalia. Other sponsors and supporters include: USArtists for Africa, Ndere Cultural Center, The Bistro, Absa Bank and Kardamom and Koffee.
