NIGHT OF THEATRE n°8

 


The Night of Theatre n°8 was held on 14th Feb 2015 at Trimukhi Cultural Centre in the Santhal tribal village of Borotalpada (West Midnapore, West Bengal, India). During the night-long event, artists from La Habana, Paris, Kolkata and Mexico city, together with tribal actors, dancers and musicians showcased in different places around and inside Trimukhi Cultural Centre, theatre, music and dance performances as well as a double sound installation and happenings. For this 8th edition, a reduced number of guests audience from Kolkata was received so to favor exchange and dialogue with the villagers. The program ended with a multicultural dance party. The bus returned at 5:45 AM. Reporting for The Time of India, journalist Rakhi Chakrabarty wrote: “Across the Subarnarekha, where the road ends and rolling fields spread out against the sky, is a sleepy Santhal village called Borotalpada. On Saturday, the remote Adivasi village in West Midnapore district was buzzing with activity. For, it was a Night of Theatre. A theatre with home-grown actors. A theatre of the soil. A contemporary theatre, a theatre of the present, where life will be presented, not represented; theatre where life unfolds as life as we experience it.”
