Today, on the opening day of weeklong ‘Bangladesh International Theatre Festival’, Dhriti Nartanalay will stage Rabindranath Tagore’s dance-drama ‘Mayar Khela’ at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilapakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

‘Mayar Khela’ is Tagore’s first ever written musical play, where he employs colour and beauty in the form of his most expressive contribution to Bengal, Bengali literature and Rabindra Sangeet. It is the story of a man, Amar, who is in love with Shanta. But due to an inexplicable ennui that he experiences, he decides to see what the world has to offer before commits himself to a set way of life. During his sojourns, he meets Pramada, the most beautiful woman in that land. But flirtatious Pramada doesn’t give Amar his true worth and eventually, Amar decides to return to Shanta after which they are reunited once again.

Led and choreographed by Warda Rihab, Nirjher Chowdhury has directed music for the dance-drama.

Aiming to promote and expand the theatrical productions worldwide, Cultural Ministry, in association with BSA and International Theatre Unit, is organising the festival. Besides, the event is supported by Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation.

The mass audiences can enjoy the festival through an online registration, which is free of cost. For registration, the audience have to visit www.internationaltheatrefestbd.com.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7pm, today
