To mark the 70th founding anniversary of the International Theatre Institute (ITI), a three-day celebration programme featuring discussions and cultural presentations was organised at the National Theatre auditorium of the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Cultural affairs minister Asaduzzaman Noor inaugurated the programme on Thursday on the BSA premises. ITI Bangladesh honorary president Ramendu Majumdar and BSA director general Liaquat Ali Lucky were present as special guests.

After the inauguration, Pallavi Dance Centre, Dhaka, and artistes of ethnic minorities presented group dance performances. Later, a drama collage by seven theatre troupes was staged. The participating troupes were Natyadhara, Padatik Natya Samgsad, Loko Natyadal, Theatre Art Unit, Natya Teertha, Mahakal Natya Sampraday and Bangladesh Theatre.

On the second day, yesterday, a theatre lecture titled ‘Ontorongo Kothon: Amar Natyapoth’ was held at the seminar room of BSA. Noted director-actor Sri Bibhas Chakraborty was present at the event.

Later, Chintok Theatre of Gobindaganj in Gaibandha staged a folk dance-drama, ‘Behula Bhasan’ at the main theatre hall of BSA.

Fakir Aziz Sarkar from Manikgonj will present ‘Gazir Gaan’ at the same venue today, the last day of the programme.

The International Theatre Institute is an international non-governmental organisation, which was established by UNESCO in Prague in 1948. The main objective was to build an organisation oriented towards realising the goals of UNESCO in the field of culture, education and art.

Bangladesh enjoys a long relationship with the ITI. The ITI Bangladesh centre was founded in 1982 with the initiative of Ramendu Majumdar.
