‘Irsha’ invited to Theatre Olympics in India

Popular Bangladeshi theatre troupe Prangone Mor has been invited to stage its play ‘Irsha’ at the 8th edition of the Theatre Olympics. Hosted by India’s National School of Drama, Theatre Olympics, one of the biggest international theatre festivals in the world, is currently underway in India.

Prangone Mor will stage its play ‘Irsha’ at Rabindra Satabarshiki Bhaban in Agartala on March 8 and LTG Auditorium in Delhi on March 10. The troupe will leave for India today.

Written by prolific playwright Syed Shamsul Haq and directed by theatre activist Ananta Hira, ‘Irsha’ is the eighth production of Prangone Mor, which falls in ‘musical theatre’, a form of theatre that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance.

The unique feature of this experimental play is that the 100-minute drama has only seven dialogues with the longest one being 36-minutes long while the shortest one is about 16 minutes.

The play portrays the abstract struggles and conflicts between man and man, art and art or even artist and artist. The play also features some complicated human relationships on stage, in an abstract way. The dialogues, through which the play goes forward, do not follow a particular storyline and highlight the beauties of rural Bangla, plenty and greenery of harvesting fields as well as the spirit of the War of Liberation.

The lead cast of the play includes Ananta Hira, Nuna Afroz and Ramiz Raju.

Beginning from February 17, the festival will run till April 8 in major cities of the India.
