3 fiercely independent women, the big city, and a whole emotional universe. Head here for some deep head-scratching.
Rangadhara, in association with Sutradhar, is presenting RangSutra
, a festival of theatre and arts, from 13th to 16th January, at the National Institute Of Fashion Technology auditorium, Madhapur.
Sutradhar is presenting Mahesh Elkunchwar's play in Hindi, "Sonata", on the last day of the festival, the 16th of January, at 7:30pm. The play has been directed by Prof. Bhaskar Shewalkar.
The story happens on a Sunday evening in the lives of 3 former college friends - fiercely independent and single-by-choice women. Sonata articulates their relationships, ideals, aims, psychology and sexuality, and the love and bonding the 3 share despite all their differences.
It also explores loneliness in a big city, the women's need to return to their hometown, and the way they cling to each other for companionship.
Rangadhara was formed in the July of 1971, by a group of 4 theatre enthusiasts, whose first production was Samuel Beckett's "Waiting For Godot" in Marathi, which won the Best Direction award and 7 other awards in the Maharashtra Rajya Natya Spardha during the year 1973-74.
This theatre group has so far produced 75 plays with over 300 performances in Hindi, Marathi, Urdu, English and Telugu.
Sutradhar, formally launched as Sutradhar Casting Agency Pvt. Ltd. in 1996, has come a long way since. Started by Vinay Verma, a theatre actor and a product of Rangadhara, Sutradhar has so far produced about 40 plays, some of which are in association with Rangadhara.
The play starts at 7:30pm, and the donor passes cost Rs. 300 per head for each play. Please contact Sutradhar at 98480-52541 / 98852-37887 for further details.
