Magic and imagination usually tremble in the face of certain death, but here's an attempt to make them work.
Arpana will be staging its latest production 'Walking To The Sun', an English/Hindi play based on Rabindranath Tagore's Dak Ghar, on 15th November, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium.
A special tribute to Rabindranath Tagore during his 150th birth anniversary, the play has been written by Vivek V Narayan, and has been directed by Sunil Shanbag. Its cast includes Satyajit Sharma, Sudhir Pandey, Jagdish Rajpurohit, Manasi Rachh, Bhushan Boregaonkar, Shailesh Hejmadi, Anand Pande, Animesh Kamath and Amruta Sant.
Amal looks out of the window of his room and yearns for freedom, as he battles patiently with a grave illness. In Warsaw, Poland, Dr. Janusz Korczak struggles to give meaning and courage to the lives of his orphans as they confront the grim realities of war torn Europe, and the impending Holocaust.
'Walking To The Sun' brings together Dak Ghar, the magical-philosophical play by Rabindranath Tagore, and the inspiring true story of a Polish doctor and storyteller, to replace the harsh reality of illness, hatred, and certain death with imagination, hope and a childlike desire to walk to the Sun.
Entry is by free invitations, available at Kalakriti Art Gallery, Landmark Book Stores, Taj Banjara and The Secunderabad Club. Please contact the Kalakriti Art Gallery at 6656-4466 for further details.
