General Secretary of Bangladesh Centre of the International Theatre Institute (BCITI), Ataur Rahman discussing the activities of the organisation said, "The International Theatre Institute is a common platform for the activists of performing art forms like drama, dance and others.” He said that because of the successful publication (World of Theatre) by BCITI, we have bagged many prestigious posts in the ITI World Committee, including vice president and chairperson of different important sub-committees. The 125th session of ITI Worldwide Executive Council will be held in Dhaka during the festival.”
“Our activities have created a positive image of Bangladeshi culture overseas. The foreigners label our theatre as 'theatre of passion'. We are also working on a theatre encyclopaedia in 12 volumes, which will be a remarkable endeavour in the history of world theatre," he said.
