Swapnadal stages two shows of ‘Chitrangada’ at Shilpakala today

Swapnadal, one of the most vibrant theatre troupes in the country, will stage two consecutive shows of its much-acclaimed production titled ‘Chitrangada’ today at the Studio Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in Segun Bagicha of the capital. The play will be brought to the stage on the occasion of Valentine’s Day.

The first show of the play will be staged at 6pm, while the second show will be staged 7:30pm.

‘Chitrangada’ is the 11th production of Swapnadal, written by Nobel Laureate Poet Rabindranath Tagore and directed by Zahid Repon.

The script of the play is an adaptation of a tale in the great eastern epic `Mahabharata’, but with new and modern interpretations, permanent for mankind.

Rabindranath wrote the play in two different forms or versions.

In 1892, when he was only 31 years old, he wrote ‘Chitrangada’ in poetic drama (Kabyanatya) form. But 44 years later, in 1936, he wrote it in dance drama (Nrityanatya) form based on the same story.

Swapnadal has prepared the production ‘Chitrangada’ with the poetic drama version. It may be mentioned that dance drama form of ‘Chitrangada’ is well known, because it has been performed by a good number of organisations. On the other side, the poetic drama version of ‘Chitrangada’ has not been staged regularly in modern stage before Swapnadal.

To note, paying homage to the greatest playwright and philosopher Rabindranath Tagore on his 150th Birth Anniversary (2011), Swapnadal produced the theatre-production Tagore’s poetic drama ‘Chitrangada’. Swapnadal achieved the Cultural Grant for making this production from the Ministry of Cultural Affairs of Peoples Republic of Bangladesh.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 6pm & 7:30pm, today
