SILENT VOICES UGANDA
In 2010, following a response to Sundance Institute Theatre Program’s open call for their East Africa Lab, Silent Voices was miraculously selected after receiving numerous rejections on the Uganda theatre scene.
Silent Voices is a powerful poignant war crimes story that mirrors the views and emotions of actual victims of the Northern Uganda war.
The workshop development of the play was directed by Kenyan director, Jacob Othieno with the Sundance Institute Theatre Program team of Philip Himberg, Roberta Levitow, Liesl Tommy and American based Uganda theatre maker and scholar, George Seremba working as the play’s dramaturges.
This development lab and the later New York Residency by the playwright in April of 2011 took the play to such new heights enriching it immensely contributing a lot to making the play ready for a production.
