Dwarka: Centre for Cultural Resources and Training, Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with Shri Ram Centre for Performing Arts (SRCPA) hosted one of the popular plays written by Late Girish Karnad – Agni Aur Barkha – at its premises CCRT in Sector 7, Dwarka.
The chief guest of the play was RK Chaturvedi, Special Secretary and Financial Adviser, Ministry of Culture. He lauded the efforts of CCRT and SRCPA for bringing theatre from classes to masses.
The play was directed by Prof KS Rajendran, an alumnus and a member of faculty at the National School of Drama. Rajendran said, “The game of love, lust and power forms the axis of the play. Drawing upon the traditional movements and gestures, we evolved a few scenes in stylized form and the rest of them realistic.”
Late Shri Girish Karnad was an Indian playwright, author, actor, professor and film director. Through his play, ‘Agni aur Barkha’, Karnad explored several existential questions using mythology. It is an interesting tale about various human characters.
The audience thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They lauded the efforts of CCRT for bringing this visual treat for the Dwarka residents almost on their doorstep.
