Bibhas Chakraborty: Bengali Theatre is lacking in idea

Posted by Kaahon Desk On November 14, 2014

In the words of the celebrated theatre director Bibhas Chakraborty, the very scope of Bengali theatre has narrowed down. The essential concerns involving theatre activity have shifted owing to a system driven by market economy. Consequently, the scope to try new things is limited along with a lack of courage to take the risk involved! Hence, it’s quite clear why Bengali theatre is suffering from a dull and monotonous stasis. Furthermore he points out the catch-22 of Government grants. It may seem that the money is like a lifeline to the art form, but the compulsions and criteria associated with it often have adverse effects.
