NNK's Dogri Play Macbeth; The Crown of Blood Performed in Bikaner

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Mar 18: Natraj Natya Kunj, Cultural Society Jammu, performed Dogri adaptation of William Shakespeare tragedy Play Macbeth; The Crown Of Blood in Bikaner Theatre Festival, Rajasthan.
Elucidating about the play, Director Abhishek Bharti said that the play is a story of Macbeth who is a courageous Scottish general not naturally inclined to commit evil deeds, but kills the king against his better judgment and afterward stews in guilt and paranoia. Toward the end of the play he descends into a kind of frantic, boastful madness. The problem, the play suggests, is that once one decides to use violence to further one's quest for power, it is difficult to stop. First staged in 1606, the three witches and other dark imagery have entered the collective imagination.
In Abhishek Bharti's version, Shakespeare's dark tragedy stands transported from its original medieval Scottish locale to an ancient and tribal place and bestowed with a kind of timelessness and universality. In spite of the change in setting and language and numerous creative liberties, NNK's design is marked by a new eclectic theatrical grammar: gestural, symbolic and stylized. Drawing elements from Indian classical dramaturgical discourses, Bharata's Natya Shastra and the traditional Indian performance mode-all stand assimilated into Abhishek's own distinct form.
President of the Group Kumar. A.'Bharti' told that it's a matter of gratification for the Dogri language and theatre that Dogri play is performed in a National festival where there was no representation of any other regional language in the festival. Sudesh Vyas, President of Anurag Kala Kendra, Bikaner cherished the performance and said that it's really appreciable that the enthusiasm and perfection of the team that came to perform besides the dreadful activities in their state was commendable. The festival commenced from 14th of March 2019 in which 25 teams from 15 states had performed in this mega festival. The audience showed appreciation by a giving standing ovation and huge rounds of applauds.
The cast comprises of Lalit sharma as Badarveer, Karan Mehra as kritveer, Akshay razdan as Sardar, Aman sharma as Bangi, Mukesh Bakshi as Bali, Niharika Sakshi as Nanda, Kanav Sharma as Mani, Karan, Anshika Sharma and Hema Shivgotra as Witch 1, 2 and 3 respectively .Production was managed by Lalit Sharma and assisted by Akshay Razdan, designed by Kumar.A. 'Bharti', Make-up by Shammi Dhamir, sets and property by Anshika, Hema and Priya Sharma, Costumes by Niharika Sakshi, Stage Manager Manik & Rahul.
