Bishnupriya Manipuri Newsmaker (Bangladesh)

It is with great pleasure we bring to you some ...of the brightest potentials in our (Bangladesh) cultural world. It is our (The Daily Star) way of introducing a “new” generation of news makers in the new year. In their own words they express their highlights of the year gone by and share their expectations from the fans.

Jyoti Sinha, actor, Manipuri Theatre

I had spent last year mostly performing in my troupe's monodrama, “Kohe Birangana”. The show has been staged 27 times since its debut in December, 2010. The play has been staged in different districts including Dhaka, Chittagong, Sylhet and Habiganj.

With the government grant, my troupe has produced a Tagore play, “Debotar Grash”. The play premiered on December 29 last year in Dhaka. I had to spend a significant period of time for the rehearsal of the play, where I have been enacting an important role. The play is in Bishnupriya Manipuri language.

Our troupe celebrated its 15th anniversary last year. We produced a collage featuring old plays. I had to play different roles in the collage. The celebration programme was held in Kamolganj and in Dhaka. To celebrate our traditional festival Bishu as well as the Bangla New Year, Manipuri Theatre arranged a colourful programme. I had to play an important role as an organiser.

I wish to share my plans with theatre enthusiasts this year which is mainly to continue on stage performances in our ongoing productions. Moreover, I want to continue my research work on Manipur Rasa Leela that I started last year. In my “Open Letter” I want to add that we will run a camp to collect new members for the troupe. So keep in touch!!
