Protesting With Performance

Since the sit-in demanding death penalty for war criminal Abdul Quader Mollah has begun at the Shahbagh intersection in Dhaka on February 5, alongside hardcore protest, cultural performances prove to be a key element in motivating thousands of demonstrators each day. Cultural activists as well as amateur and professional artistes have been gathering at the venue -- raising their voices with inspirational songs, street plays, installations, street paintings, graffiti and more. A group of artists erected an installation, titled “E Khancha Bhangbo Ami Kemon Korey” in front of Shahbagh Police Station. A cage-like wooden structure, the installation is a symbol of protest, urging all to break free. Among theatre troupes, Prachyanat, Natyadhara and Tirandaj held improvised performances. Members of Bloggers and Activist Network initiated the protest by organising a human chain in front of the National Museum.
