‘Raarang’ on Shilpakala stage tomorrow

‘Raarang’ on Shilpakala stage tomorrow

Tomorrow, once again, the heroic tale of the struggles of the Santal community are going to be brought to life on stage by the theatre troupe Aranyak Natyadal with the play ‘Raarang’, which is scheduled to be staged at 7pm at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.   

Set against the backdrop of the British Raj, 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
