Badal Sircar’s ‘Tringsha Shatabdee’ Directed by Zahid Repon


Tringsha Shatabdee


Tringsha Shatabdee is an anti-war laboratory-theatre production based on the atom-bomb tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the Second World War. Other wars of the world including Bosnia, Afghanistan-Iraq, recent brutal attack in Gaza and the liberation war of Bangladesh are also the issues of this production.

The presentation depends only on empty space, physical and mental abilities of the performers, rhythm, gesture, and also multi-dimensional use of portable props like Gamsa, a traditional cloth of Bengal. Tringsha Shatabdee is a much-acclaimed production in Bangladesh.
