Mapping out Tagore’s creative journey through the many women who walked in and out of his life, a tribute to Tagore will mark the curtain call for the 12th Vodafone Odeon theatre festival, partnered by t2. A Nritya Geeti Alekhya titled Ashamanya would take the stage today at GD Birla Sabhagar, 7.30pm.
The deep-set relationships that Tagore shared with his wife Mrinalini Devi to the unexplained bond with Anna Tarkhar and later the Argentine writer Victoria Ocampo, all find a place in this play along with Tagore’s fictional creations like Labanya, Charulata and Bimala.
“The idea of Tagore’s women may not be unique, but we have tried to place a product complete with dance, music, poetry recitation and short films,” explained the director and veteran actor Biswajit Chakraborty.
Being staged for the first time, the
ay by Prachya, New Alipore, highlights Tagore’s contribution to all the forms of performing arts used in the play.
