Jasper S Kaye is a young Ugandan born theatre director whose interest in performance drove him into a memorable life-changing encounter visit to the famed Makerere University’s Department of Music, Dance and Drama over 5 years ago. In time, he obtained a diploma in all the three creative disciplines. Thereafter, he ventured into professional theatre with House of Talent Company (HOT) – a Ugandan creative outfit specializing in indigenous African performance expressions. Jasper has zeroed in on Storytelling as an area art of great interest to him. He combines his much-loved specialty of lyrical recitation with interactive storytelling techniques to help him explore the richness of Ugandan folkloric heritage.
He sees his coming to 2010 Sigana International Storytelling Festival as a great opportunity for growth and exchange with many experienced purveyors of the word.
