Ibua Lounge is inviting you to join their latest art piece, a recorded screening of their play ‘Killing time’. When Aganza Kisaka, the writer, first wrote Killing Time the purpose was a fun challenge for actors, to stretch their ability in switching characters cohesively in order to tell a story. However, its themes struck home and that was how the play was born. Killing time is a satire about the pursuit of a good life and happiness. The play is driven by a two-person cast that plays multiple characters, switching between characters and costumes at a fluid pace. While set in Uganda, this play describes a reality that is true for most African countries and even beyond.
During the event, Ibua Lounge will also introduce you to their new format: The Creative Critique Space. The purpose of the space is to bring together scholars, artists, art journalists, art fans, art bloggers, to have in-depth conversations about a work (or body of work) by one artist. Their goal is to bridge the lack of critical writing and conversation on artistic products made in Uganda.
