Bangladesh Udichi Shilpigosthi is set to stage the second installment of their first jatrapala, titled “Biallisher Biplob”, at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) today.
With an aspiration to revive the art form of jatrapala, the socio-cultural organization brought it to stage for the first time on December 19 last year, at the same venue.
Written by Krishna Bhattacharya and directed by Vittor Daniyel, the plot of this pala is set against the backdrop of the Swadeshi movement of British India during 1942.
The pala presents the independence movement of India, and how it encouraged the patriots to fight for freedom.
In the pala, Udichi artistes act in the traditional art form, which has a very distinctive style with high-pitched voices, accompanied by live music.
Jatrapala is a form of folk theatre where actors perform in the open air. It was an important part of rural Bangla in the past.
Bangladesh Udichi Shilpigosthi has always been active in the cultural field to preserve our culture and heritage.
Through this pala, they are attempting to revitalize the dying art form.
