Artistes of China and Bangladesh staged Rabindranath Tagore’s two popular plays ‘Chitra’ and ‘Rath Yatra’ at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA)’s Experimental Theatre Hall on Sunday.

Performers from Peking University of China presented Tagore’s ‘Chitra’ at 4 pm, which was directed by Hou Jue. The Chinese version of the play has been written by Pan Ayuan.

Rabindranath Tagore’s another popular play ‘Rath Yatra’ was staged by Loko Natya Dol at 6 pm which was directed by dramatist and BSA director Liaquat Ali Lucky.

State Minister for Cultural Affairs K M Khalid and Secretary Abu Hena Mostofa Kamal attended the plays and praised the initiative and performers.

The event is a joint collaboration of Chinese Embassy, BSA, Peking University’s Department of Afro-Asian Languages under its School of Foreign Languages, Dhaka University’s Department of Theatre and Performance Studies and the Bangladesh-China Friendship Center.

The play ‘Chitra’ was also staged on Saturday at TSC Theatre of Dhaka University by the Peking University drama team.

As part of the ‘China Culture Month 2019’ programme arranged by Chinese Embassy in Dhaka, the goal behind this drama-exchange was to present the versatile creations of Rabindranath and narrate his influences in the culture of Bangladesh to the Chinese students- and also to promote the friendship and mutual understanding between China and Bangladesh.

The month-long programme will also feature China-Bangladesh themed cultural exhibition.
