Aranyak to stage ‘Raarang’ at Shilpakala tomorrow

DL DESK, Dhaka
Aranyak to stage ‘Raarang’ at Shilpakala tomorrow

Popular theatre troupe Aranyak Natyadal will stage its much-acclaimed production ‘Raarang’ (The Distant Drum) tomorrow at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

The play tells the heroic tale of the struggles of the Santal community. Set against the backdrop of the British Raj, the play is written and directed by Mamunur Rashid. The play’s impressive cast includes Chanchal Chowdhury, AKM Hassan, Tomalika Karmakar, Joy Raj and Shamim Jaman.

Raarang is a Santal word for their battle cry. Though the Santal uprising has been overshadowed by many others that followed, the legacy of the rebellion lives on among the Santal tribes and speaks of their pride in their identity. Based on the Santal Rebellion of 1855, which is said to have inspired the revolutionary struggles of many other groups across the Indian subcontinent, ‘Raarang’ also shows the tragic tale of Alfred Soren, who was killed in 2000 when he opposed the expulsion of Santals from their ancestral lands. Soren was stabbed to death and his home torched.  

Tickets will be available in front of the hall before the show. One can contact at 01718 759754.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7pm, tomorrow
