Recitation troupe Swarabanjan staged its recent production Ghum Nei Otopor depicting stories of liberation war on Wednesday at National Art Gallery Auditorium of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
The production, based on ‘Ghum Nei’ by Nasiruddin Yousuff and ‘Ekattorer Dingulee’ by Jahanara Imam, has been compiled and directed by renowned recitation artiste and Sammilita Sangskritik Jote general secretary Hasan Arif.
Artistes of the troupe narrated excerpts from the two books while others enacted parts of the incidents narrated in the books.
The production depicted hopes and dreams of freedom fighters, their sacrifices, struggles and hardships during the tumultuous days of the liberation war.
Swarabanjan artistes Dipak Ghosh, Monirul Islam, Sabiha Setu, Tonmoy Karim, Syed Ashik, Pankaj Pandey and Kaniz Hridi performed in the production.
‘The production gives a glimpse into the liberation war. I hope that the audience will get the essence of liberation war through this production as well as feel the spirit that led thousands to take arms and sacrifice for an independent country,’ said Hasan Arif.
‘I enjoyed the production as it nicely and very evocatively brought the eventful liberation war days before us,’ Asadul Islam, an audience member, told New Age.
