Wednesday , 11th of may, Sarwanam theatre-group performed at “Army Officers Club” on the occasion of the 150th birthday of the famous Indian poet “Rabindranath Tagore”. For this play called “Tagoreka Patraharu”, our director Ashesh Malla mixed different stories and poems written by Tagore into a single fluent coherent playwright. Therefore there was a narrator, who introduced the acted scenes by reading out extracts of Tagore’s stories and moreover connected the different storylines.
This technique of combining different stories into one single story till now has been an entirely new way for Sarwanam to express art as well as it was new for the theatre-culture of Nepal.
Furthermore the play had the typical characteristic of Sarwanam drama to be able to being put into an actual political and social context.
On top of that the whole play was supported by constant guitar, tabla – drum and harmonium – music and a variety of light effects.
Altogether the Sarwanam group gave a good show to the auditorium and many newspapers summarized the play as an impressing piece of drama.
