It’s fight club on Capital stage
The Films and Theatre Society is on with their play, Arjun Ka Beta. The 80-minute play is written and directed by Atul Satya Koushik. It is an attempt to present the chapter of Chakravyuh from the great epic of Mahabharata in a new manner where hidden meanings, interpretation and learning from the philosophy of the Chakravyuh take the front seat, yet keeping all the action, glory, bravado and valor related to the incident equally important. Krishna as the protagonist in the play begins by establishing the importance keeping the learning from the mythology in our minds even though we forget the incidents of events that actually happened in them.
There are reasons you wouldn’t want to miss this! Top-class poetry rich in words, content and meaning awaits you. It’ll have answers to questions which belong to all ages and humans in a very dramatic manner and credible performance by experienced actors is definitely happening. A fierce war scene choreographed in Thangta, an Indian martial art form, you surely don’t want to miss this. The period costumes and spectacular light and sound effects to leave you mesmerised. Oh and, have you heard live war songs?
Films and Theatre Society is five years old. The main objective of the society is the production and promotion of theatrical plays, short (and other) films and other performing arts such as dance and music in India, with a special focus and concentration on Indian arts. Other objectives of the society inter-alia include furtherance of literature, creative arts related to theatre and films and other art forms, and making available to its members resources connected.
Another peculiar feature about the society is that in spite of being a weekend arts group it has been able to come up with productions which match up to the standards of any other professional group working in related field. This is the reason various companies, corporate houses and other institutional bodies have shown interest and extended their support to the activities and production of the society.
