Loko Natyadal is one of the most prominent theatre troupes in the country. The troupe has completed an eventful journey of 37 years in the country’s theatre arena this Friday.


 
Led by Liaquat Ali Lucy, Loko Natyadal started its journey with a group of young theatre enthusiasts on July 6 in 1981.

In 2005, the troupe was divided into two factions, and one of the groups, under the name Loko Natyadal (Banani), began its activities under the guidance of several senior artistes. Besides, other faction remained with Liaquat Ali Lucy-Loko Natyadal (Siddeswari) and continued theatre practice. Both the factions celebrated the 37th founding anniversary on the same day in their own ways.  

To celebrate the 37th founding anniversary, Loko Natyadal (Siddeswari) organised an event featuring discussion and staging play on the premises of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Presided over by BSA Director General Liaquat Ali Lucky, prominent theatre personality Ataur Rahman and director Abdus Selim attended the discussion event as discussants.

After discussion, the troupe staged its much-acclaimed production ‘Rath Yatra’. Written by   Rabindranath Tagore, Liaquat Ali Lucky has directed the drama.

On the other hand, Loko Natyadal (Banani) arranged two-day celebration programme on two different venues on Friday and Saturday.

The celebration programme featuring music, songs and discussion held at the Mahila Samiti on Friday, while  the troupe staged Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Baikunther Khata’ at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the capital yesterday. Directed by Kamrun Nur Chowdhury, the play narrates a comic story involving a manuscript owned by Baikuntha.
