Jyotirupa drama fest from March 9

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 4 � Plays that reflect the societal changes and life in all its kaleidoscopic appeal will be staged during the 3rd Jyotirupa Singha Purush Radha Govinda Baruah full length drama festival that will kick off on March 9 at Rabindra Bhawan here.

A total of four plays by noted theatre groups will be presented during the four-day festival which has emerged as a platform for showcasing the talents of the State.

It needs to be mentioned here that the festival over the years has succeeded in giving a momentum to the theatre movement in the State and creating good taste in the audience.

Secretary of Jyotirupa, a socio-cultural organisation, Bhuban Lahkar while interacting with media persons on Friday said that the objective of organizsing such an event was to promote the theatre groups as well as highlight the contribution of Radha Govinda Baruah towards the theatre movement.

�Though we are aware about the contributions of Radha Govinda Baruah in various fields, not much is known about his interest in theatre,� said Lahkar adding that the plays to be staged in the festival have been carefully selected so that the audience is not disappointed.

The organisers have not kept any entry fee. The programme will begin at 6 pm everyday.

On the first day of the festival, Aitijya directed by well known theatre personality Bhagirathi will be staged. On March 10, Dumukshi by Badungduppa, which has carved a niche through its emphasis on portrayal of contemporary issues based on legends, will be presented. On March 11, Ba will present Charan Das Chor and on the concluding day, Purbaranga will present Abhishar, a play based on a poem of Rabindra Nath Tagore.

Lahkar asserted that the plays have been critically acclaimed and will entertain the audience. Dumukshi has been received warmly by the theatre lovers and outside the State also it has won the critics. Abhishar on the other hand needs no mention as it has the typical Gunakar Dev Goswami style and is replete with folk elements," said Lahkar.
