Enduring Life, a Journey of Passion, Excellence in Theatre

Last month, the National Cultural Centre honoured Abate Mekuria for his numerous contributions to the theatrical arts. While he’s enjoyed an esteemed career, the commemoration came as a surprise, since Abate hasn’t always enjoyed an affable relationship with the government, past or present, due to his plays that often deal with controversial social issues. Still, many in the artistic community think the award was well deserved for a man who has given so much to the development of Ethiopian theatre. EBR’s adjunct staff writer Meseret Mamo spoke with Abate, his colleagues and a former student to learn more about the man and the legacy he hopes to leave behind.
