Curtain rises on 9-day ‘Nat’l Children’s Drama and Cultural Festival’

DL REPORTER, Dhaka
Curtain rises on 9-day ‘Nat’l Children’s Drama and Cultural Festival’

The curtain rose on the National Children’s Drama and Cultural Festival 2019 on Friday at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the capital. A total of 95 children’s theatre troupes from across the country are taking part in this nine-day event.

Arranged by People’s Theatre Association (PTA), in association with BSA, the festival is simultaneously taking place at the National Theatre Hall, Experimental Theatre Hall, Studio Theatre Hall, National Music and Dance auditorium and open premises of BSA.

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader inaugurated the festival as chief guest on Friday, while State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid, veteran artist Mostafa Monwar, renowned thespian Ramendu Majumdar, Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation general secretary Kamal Bayazid were present as special guests at the programme.

Obaidul Quader said, “I came to the Shilpakala Academy premises many times, when I was in charge of this ministry.

It’s good to see that Shilpakala Academy continues practicing art. It is blissful for our cultural industry that children from all districts of the country are participating in this festival”.

He also said, “If the budget allocated for Shilpakala Academy increases, the culture of the country will become more vibrant. There’s no reason to be disappointed, because we have a very culture-friendly leader. Sheikh Hasina is a great leader. As she is awake, Bangladesh can sleep safely. No one like our culture-friendly leader Sheikh Hasina came to this country after 1975.”

The cultural programme began with the rendition of the festival song titled ‘Amra Sobai Moncha Kori, Noto Nandane Phutbo’ by the child artistes of PTA. Then, artistes of BSA presented choreography with the song ‘We are the world, we are the children’, while specially-abled children presented choreography with poet Syed Shamsul Haq’s poem ‘Amar Porichoy’.

This year, a total of 10,000 child artistes from 64 districts are scheduled to stage a total of 95 theatrical plays and exhibit 85 performances every day at 8 venues of BSA from September 20 to 28. The festival also features dance, recitation, drawing, the Historic 7th March Speech, acrobatic show, and also performances by the specially-abled children.
