SAMAHAR Natya Gosthee, a Guwahati based theatre group, is going to organise the 13th Annual Brajanath Sharma Memorial Inter-State Drama Festival in September this year with participation of theatre groups from across Assam and outside.
The seven-day festival being organised in collaboration with the Union ministry of culture, will begin from September 21 at District Library Auditorium in Guwahati.
The theatre group has recently formed the organising committee for the theatre extravaganza, which has become a landmark festival in the hallowed memory of the father of Assamese moving theatre and firebrand freedom fighter – Brajanath Sharma.
Among others, the Committee has a few prominent personalities as advisors like lyricist Kirtikamal Bhuyan, social activist Abani Sutradhar, veteran journalist Baikuntha Goswami, Professor Emeritus of Gauhati University cum writer Khanin Chowdhury and music composer Bibhuranjan Choudhury, said a statement.
The theatre group’s president Lalit Sarma will be the president of the committee, while renowned theatre personality and filmmaker Sitanath Lahkar will function as the general secretary.
As part of the procedure that is being followed every year, different groups will be invited to perform at the festival depending upon the quality of the plays and standard of performance.
For that, SAMAHAR has invited the script of the play along with CD/DVD/pen drive of its latest performance from willing groups/institutions.
The last date for receiving the same is July 25. The details of the festival can also be found at the theatre group’s website–www.samahar.org.in .
