When Rayka Kobiella was asked to direct KADS’ annual Christmas Pantomime "The Prince's Bride" this year, she didn’t hesitate one second to say: “Yes!” Rayka has been in Kampala for the last 6 weeks for rehearsals. She and her partner, the German artist Jonas Gerberding aka L.I.E.S., met a lot of local artists. In no time the idea came up to hold a joint exhibition - the Free[ak] show -  which will take place on 16th November 2016.
