Selim Al Deen’s ‘Nimojjon’ on BSA stage today

DL DESK, DHAKA
Selim Al Deen’s ‘Nimojjon’ on BSA stage today

Dhaka Theatre will stage Selim Al Deen’s much-acclaimed play ‘Nimojjon’ this evening at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

The play ‘Nimojjon’, an epic journey into the history of genocide, is written by Selim Al Deen and directed by Nasiruddin Yousuff.
‘Nimojjon’ does not develop any particular storyline. It presents a chronological look at genocides around the globe through narratives. The play starts with a stranger, who makes a visit to an imaginary state after receiving an invitation from his friend. During his journey he passes across the lands where he observes only genocide.

'Nimojjon’ significantly highlights that the history of civilisation and genocide is interwoven-- every civilization has had a history of genocide. And the repetition of these brutal incidents has brought human beings down from their pedestal. It is a paradox.

Al Deen does not want to identify ‘Nimojjon’ with any particular genre, though he considers the play as a strong articulation of his philosophical thoughts known as “Daitadaitobadi”. He finalised the theme of the play during a visit to Chandpur. He faced a sudden nor’wester that set him thinking about drowning and subsequently gave him the ultimate idea about the presentation of ‘Nimojjon’ or drowning.
Tickets will be available in front of the hall before the show.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha
When: 7pm, today
