If you live in the U.S. or you know an U.S. American, you know that yesterday was Thanksgiving. I still feel stuffed from yesterday's meal and exhausted from days of preparing to host a Thanksgiving feast with some of my Kampala family. I am nevertheless looking forward to going to the Dance Transmissions Festival this weekend.
From Friday to Sunday there are performances by dance companies from Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, DR Congo, USA, Japan and France at the National Theatre in Kampala. The festival is organized by Keiga Dance Company, which was founded by Jonas Byaruhanga in 2004. Entrance is 5,000 shillings (about $2 for you non-Uganda based readers).
