To mark the International Women’s Day, Swapnadal will bring their mono-drama ‘Helen Keller’ on stage today at the Studio Theatre Hall of the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Written by Apurba Kumar Kundu and directed by Zahid Repon, ‘Helen Keller’ is the 17th and latest production of Swapnadal. The cast is Juana Sobnom, while the production manager is Shakhawat Shamol.

The production depicts the life, works, dreams, struggle and philosophy of the legend and ‘Wonder of the World’ Helen Keller. She was deaf-dumb-blind person, but able to overcome all obstacles by her extreme self-confidence and also by the extra-ordinary support of her teacher Anne Sullivan.

Hellen Keller was highly influenced by the philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore and also by the thoughts of Charlie Chaplin, Mark Twain, Kennedy, and Einstein. In ‘Hellen Keller’ when she expresses gratitude to her teacher, the influences of those great masters on her become alive.

‘Helen Keller’ also speaks about her expectations of the women empowerment and humanism, strong stand against racisms, war, destruction and abuse of the Atomic weapons. Besides that, the experience of satisfactions and dissatisfactions in her personal life is also depicted in the ‘Helen Keller’.

She also expresses her own philosophy and that is to be able to dedicate someone in the human welfare despite of all obstacles or struggles, and that is called the true humanity. Finally, this philosophy becomes the prime lesson of the production ‘Helen Keller’.

However, before staging the play, Swapnadal will honour young theatre artiste Sadhona Ahmed with ‘International Women’s Day Award 2018’. Besides, Swapnadal will also honour all the female artistes of the troupe.

 The first women information officer Kamrun Nahar, theatre personality Lucky Enam and Masum Reza will attend the programme as guests.

To note, Swapnadal has been celebrating the International Women’s Day since 2012. Earlier the International Women’s Award was given to Ferdousi Majumder, Shimul Yusuf, Lucky Enam Nuna Afroz and Airin Parveen Lopa.  l
