Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
A 10-day Sangsad Nattya
Utsab-2015 was held at Enam Medical College Hospital auditorium in Savar, on the outskirts of Dhaka, recently. Vice Chancellor of University of Dhaka AAMS Arefin Siddique was present as the chief guest at the
concluding day of the theatre festival while Ramendra Majumdar, honorary
president of International Theatre Institute (ITI) was also present as
the special guest on the occasion. Liaquat Ali Lucky, Chairman of Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation and also Director General
of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy chaired the session.
Somoy Nattyadal staged play Bhager Manush in the festival.
The play, which has been adapted by Mannan Heera from Urdu short story writer Saadat Hasan Manto’s Tobatek Singh, focuses on the sufferings of the people living near the border area
during the partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947.
The play, directed by Aly Zaker, depicts the story of Tek Singh,
a mental patient in a hospital, who strongly opposes the partition that has separated a nation in the name
of religion. But, no one pays
heed to his words.
Through using satires the play also tries to depict that the partition of
a country not only divides a country into two geographically, but also divides its customs, culture and more.
The play tells the story of lives changed by the partition of India and how it has left a lasting impact
on the society irrespective of caste, creed and gender.
The troupe premiered Bhager Manush as its 26th production on December 25, 1997, since then at least 159 shows of it had been performed
at home and abroad to great acclaim. The cast of the play included Pavel Islam, Riaz Mahmud Jewel, Akteruzzaman, Fakhrul Islam Mithu, Rezaur Rahman Rigon, Mansura Rashid Lovely, Tofael Sarker, Sunita Barua, Maksudul bari Tipu, Anowar, Masum, Daud, Sonia, Rinku and Moushumi, among others. n
