Is it possible to get to know each other without putting a label on the other person? Stereotypes and prejudices are more the rule than the exception. Because the human being, whether by intent or not, divides the world into categories - be it for economic reasons, laziness or fear. So an objective approach is not easy - if it weren't for this anonymous meeting place where neither gender, age, appearance, social status nor religious affiliation plays a role: the Internet.
Detached from our national identity, we want to locate ourselves on social maps. We want to talk about fear, not as a Trojan horse for ideologies, but as a fine distinction that defines us as individuals.
Now the first series of performances of "Romeo and Juliet in Kampala" took place in Uganda. For this purpose Viola Hilbing and Simon Eifeler from Bridgeworks traveled from Germany to the Ugandan capital Kampala .
We spent much of yesterday searching for our "Romeo" and "Juliet" for our Ugandan Version of William Shakespeare's classic play "Romeo and Juliet".
Well we got an opportunity to get a feel of how "Romeo and Juliet" sounds in some of our local languages like Luganda, Runyoro, Rutooro, Rukiga, Runyankole, and Nigeria's Ibo.
