Kirtan takes up community’s remorse in poverty living

Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 13: Kirtan by Brown Thespian Chandigarh marked the conclusion of the historical milestone in Jammu theatrics which was the last show of the Nutan International Theatre Festival -2020.
The play written, designed and directed by young Ambika Kamal was a story based on the poverty and the acute hopelessness arisen in the poverty for the people affected by it.
Young couples who make their livelihood by scavenging, live in acute penury. Both of them also take up small enactments of Radha Krishan through tamasha to attract the customers who shell some money for them and hence they make their life move ahead.
Though they are in deep love with each other yet the curse of poverty always overpower their feelings which leave them hapless often.
The male who is a strongly built man of muscles and uses the absurd language against the poverty is also a very soft hearted soul who often cries in penitence for being poor .
His wife ‘Kirtan’ is only one aspect of solace to him who keeps his morale high and pushes him to live life as it is.
While the man is always seen cursing poverty, he is found absent one day, later to be revealed as killed by another man of his community for his overtones bringing anger to him. Besides, the man who kills the husband has an evil eye on the wife of the scavenger which also highlights the male dominance in the community of poor even.
How the society can help lead poverty out of the system or poverty shall remain as it is with its soietical tentacles of despondency was the entrancing gist of ‘Kirtan’.
Ambika Kamal , the director played the lead role of Kirtan while Pradeep Cheema acted as her husband . Madhusudan enacted the role of the community member who kills husband.
Set in the backdrop of bland stage with minimal props, Kirtan emerged as one of the powerful presentation of NITF-2020 and provided a befitting finale to the first leg of the event that concluded in Jammu. In its second leg starting at Amritsar on February 25, Vikram Sharma’s play Vani Dafan opens with New Delhi’s Robroo presenting the production under the desui=ign and direction of Kajal Suri.
