Second Edition of Kampala’s international theatre festival is here

Bayimba Cultural Foundation and Sundance Institute East Africa proudly announce the second edition of the Kampala International Theatre Festival to take place from 25th to 29th November 2015 at the National Theatre that will host an array of readings and productions by celebrated playwrights, directors, and actors.

The Kampala International Theatre Festival aims to provide a platform where presentations of the best and relevant theatre productions are shown, where work of risk-taking artists that aims at contributing to a meaningful and engaging dialogue is experienced. The festival is also a platform to develop professionalism among East African theatre practitioners and connect the East African theatre-making community as well as broaden the access to theatre, develop new audiences, and connect the East African theatre community with their counterparts from elsewhere. Programming is focused on showcasing alternative presentations, in alternative formats and alternative spaces, giving theatre artists and audiences multiple and alternative lenses through which to present and consume theatrical performances.

While last year’s festival predominantly focused on performances from across the East African region, with the second edition we are expanding our horizon. Not only are there performances from East Africa (Uganda, Kenya) on the programme, but this time we are bringing artists and theatre performances from Iraq/Belgium, Kosovo and a guest performance from Senegal!
