Nwgino Ubeho (Come and Be Alive)

Institute History

  • 2009 Theatre Lab


Rwandan playwright and actor, Odile Katese’s original play with music and movement, reflects back 15 years, as her country recalls the violence of the genocide, and then moves toward an exploration of what it means to truly heal and move into the future with hope and possibility. The poetry, music and dance will be performed by Ms. Katese, and two African artists—from Burkina Faso and Togo—as well as four American performers Ngwino Ubeho (Come and Be Alive) is the result of the Sundance Theatre Program’s International Initiative which focuses on the artists of East Africa (specifically Ethiopian, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.)

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
