‘Kochi Memorial Theatre Festival’ begins today

Today marks the 16th death anniversary of noted thespian Abu Mohammad Murtaish Kochi, who was one of the founding members of Padatik Nattya Sangsad (TSC) and founding organizing secretary of Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation. To remember the veteran theatre activist, Padatik has arranged a three-day theatre festival ‘Kochi Memorial Theatre Festival’ from September 13-15 at the Nilima Ibrahim Auditorium of Bangladesh Mahila Samiti in the capital’s Baily Road area.

Eminent thespian M Hamid, ITI Bangladesh Centre general secretary Debprasad Debnath, Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation secretary general Kamal Bayazid will inaugurate the festival and also attend a discussion at the event today.

After the discussion, Padatik will stage their Liberation War-based play ‘Kaal Ratri’ today at 7pm at the Mahila Samiti.  

Based on Lamisa Shirin Hossain’s story ‘The Lone Survivor’, the play has been adapted by Tanvir Ahmed and directed by Wahidul Islam. The story encircles the night of March 25, 1971 when the Pakistani military killed thousands of innocent Bangladeshis. The play unfolds as a young girl asks his grandfather, who was a teacher of Dhaka University in 1971, about the war. Through stories and her encounter with a wounded Freedom Fighter, the girl gets to know about the war and its sheer horror. The probable casts of the play include Sakhawat Hossain Shimul, Sanjida Parveen, Mohammad Imran Khan, Ikramul Islam, Jinia Azad, Tasmi Chowdhury, Syeda Shamsi Ara Sayeka and Farhad Sumon, among others.

The play, which is the 38th production of the troupe, was premiered in November 2015.
