casting in uganda
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.
Reaching new shores
For three weeks, Felix Banholzer and Simon Eifeler travel to Jerusalem to meet theaters, cultural institutions and artists, to attend musical dance and theater performances, and to develop a feeling for the structure.
