Robbikeler Farash

Prachyo is pleased to inform you that we have changed our rehearsal room from Nov.’19. Now we have shifted all our activities to our new “MAHALA GHAR” for 24×7 at 2nd. floor of Calcutta Youth Choir Building (opposite to dhaka kalibari) on Prince Anwar Shah Road. We have designed our daily group activities in a different way under the versatile leadership of our Captain.

Among our daily group activities for the whole week, we have spotted Sunday as extensive rehearsal day, followed by a refreshing addar ashor, naming “ROBBIKELER FARASH” and it was already been started by the gracious presence of some eminent drama personalities. They talked with us, shared their experiences, they read their scripts, followed by threadbare discussion, which is always being an asset to us.

So, we welcome our fellow colleagues of theatre fraternity to join us at “ROBBIKELER FARASH”.

Discovering Our Heritage - an excursion to Shantiniketan

In search of the Other Tagore
Prachyo’s members undertook a three day long educational cum theatrical journey in Santiniketan, Bolpur. Our primary aim was to discover and see various places around Santiniketan ( which is already a centre of attraction due to its connection with Tagore ) and also try and understand Rabindranath more intimately. Our first day started with a visit to the Kopai river up north, followed by a visit to Kankalitala which is one of the Shakti Peeths. We ended our day with a visit to Sonajhuri forest and it’s famous Haat. Our second day was focused on Tagore and Visva-Bharati University. We first went to Rabindra Bhavana which has extensive collections of archives related to Rabindranath and the Tagore Family. Our next stop was Uttarayana Complex which has five houses built by Tagore. We also visited Udichi. Our guru deeply reveres Tagore philosophically and his interactions with our guide, who is a student of Visva-Bharati enabled us to see a Shantiniketan which people often miss amidst the usual bustle. We visited the various departments of the University – how Tagore imagined education, the open classrooms, the abundance of natural beauty fascinated us. Our longest stop was in Kala Bhavana – sculptures, paintings, murals and frescoes. We visited Nandan art gallery too. We also managed to sneak in to the workshop of the students and it was an artist’s world – a huge factory of colour, machinery and skill.
On the third day we went to Sriniketan to see the Puthi Bari and Rathindranath Tagore’s house. Puthi Bari is the place where the draft of “Bisarjan” was reached it’s final shape after some changes. The final evening of the final day was celebrated with a performance of “Bidhisammato Satarkikaran”, an agit-prop street theatre written by Shatadal Chakraborty for the first time at Nibhrito Purnima Natyagram ( Theatre Village ).
