Nagorik Natyangan Ensemble goes to Kolkata

A scene from the play “Ami Noi”.

Theatre troupe Nagorik Natyangan Ensemble will stage its poetic play “Ami Noi” at a theatre festival in Kolkata, West Bengal. Director of the troupe, Jamaluddin Hossain, informed that the play would be staged as part of Bahurupi Theatre Festival.
The play will be staged at the auditorium of Kolkata Academy of Fine Arts on May 2 (the second day of the festival). Bahurupi, one of the leading theatre troupes of Kolkata, is holding the festival to celebrate its 63rd anniversary.
“Ami Noi” is written by Manzur-e-Mawla and directed by Jamaluddin Hossain.
The plot revolves around the murder of a middle-aged man, played by Jamaluddin Hossain. The play starts with the murder scene. The first half is like a prequel to the murder, in which the protagonist realises that he would be killed. And this knowledge or assumption of the future inspires in him an urge to break loose from traditional norms and values.
The cast also includes Rawshan Ara Hossain, Golam Sarwar, Rabiul Hasan and Jhumur Asma. Aminur Rahman Azam is the set designer of the play.
“Ami Noi” was first staged in 2004. The play was staged on April 22 at the Experimental Theatre Hall, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
Nagorik Natyangan's latest play is “Neel-er Pala”.
