DL REPORTER, Dhaka
Int’l theatre fest ‘BotTala Ranga Mela 2019’ from Nov 16

The third edition of the international theatre festival titled ‘BotTala Ranga Mela 2019’ is set to kick off on November 16. Organised by BotTala--a performance space, the 11-day event will be taking place on the premises of Liberation War Museum in the capital’s Agargaon area.

Noted theatre personality Ataur Rahman will inaugurate the festival, while state minister for cultural affairs KM Khalid will attend the opening ceremony as the chief guest. Three young playwrights Sadhona Ahmed, Ruma Modak and Shubhashish Sinha will be present as special guests.

Veteran playwright, director and actor Mamunur Rashid will be bestowed with the lifetime achievement award at the closing ceremony of the festival on November 26.

This year, two theatre troupes from Bangladesh, including host troupe BotTala, and eight troupes from abroad will stage their plays every day at 7:30pm during the festival. Along with Bangladesh, the participating countries in the festival are India, Spain, Iran and Nepal.

‘BotTala Ranga Mela 2019’ will present notable plays like ‘Crutch-er Colonel’ (Bangladesh), ‘Amar Mukher Anchalkhani’ (India), ‘Dilemmas Witch My Flamenco Tail Coat’ (Spain), ‘Mysterious Gift’ (Iran), ‘4.48 Psychosis’ (Nepal), ‘Biswa Mangal’ (India), ‘Macbeth’ (Bangladesh), ‘Shluk’ (India), ‘Blackhole’ (India), ‘Acharya Profulla Chandra’ (India) and ‘Khona’ (Bangladesh).

Alongside staging plays, the festival will also feature screening of documentary, discussion, song, dance, recitation and children plays.

Like the last year, eight theatre activists from eight divisions, who have been working tirelessly to promote theatre in the country, will be awarded at the festival.
