Dhaka University Cultural Society and Srot Abritti Sangsad entertained the audience presenting songs, dance recitals and recitation at Music and Dance Centre of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on Monday.

Around 35 artistes of Dhaka University Cultural Society staged a production titled ‘Hridoy-ey Bangladesh’.

The troupes performed at the venue on the fourth day of the ten-day Ganga-Jamuna Cultural Festival 2019, under way at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy and Bangladesh Mahila Samity.

Hridoy-ey Bangladesh has been written by a student of journalism department of DU named Ratul Ahmed and directed by Sabrina Haque Mauly. It portrays the history of Bangladesh from 1952 to present.

Hridoy-ey Bangladesh portrays the language movement of 1952, liberation war of 1971, the sacrifices of freedom fighters and other movements after that.

Artistes presented dance recitals synchronised with songs like Dhono dhanne pushpe bhora, Purbo digonte shurjo utheche, O amar desher mati, Ma tomar chele hariye geche and others.

Neaz Shariful Haque, Abu Ibne Rfi, Shohan, Sumon Saha, Susmita Saha and others performed at the event.

‘Hridoy-ey Bangladesh is our first production which aims to spread the spirit of the liberation war among the youths. It was first staged on 2015 at Bangladesh University of Professionals. We would like to thank the organisers for inviting us to the event,’ said Ratul Ahmed.

Besides, 15 artistes of Srot Abritti Sangsad staged a recitation production titled ‘Manober Jayogan’ at the venue.

The production has been compiled by Mahfuz Rizvi and directed by Masuduzzaman.

It portrays the effects of religious bigotry, anomalies in society, gender discrimination and how people triumph against all odds.

Mahfuz Masum, Rokon Ahmed, Masuduzzaman, Mahfuz Rizvi, Samina Sultana Tandra, Amina Tafsan and others participated in the production.

‘We believe that poems can inspire people to raise their voices against social anomalies, injustice, inequality, oppression and others,’ said Masuduzzaman.

Besides, artistes of six cultural troupes entertained the audience with group and solo performances at the open stage on BSA premises.
