City-based theatre group, Shriek of Silence, have organized a day-long tribute to Rabindranath Tagore on his 159th birth anniversary on May 8. This event will take place in the form of a video series, which were pre-recorded by 73 artistes, and will be played all throughout the day from 9 am onwards on Shriek of Silence’s social media page. The primary initiators and hosts of the digital event are singer Pranati Tagore and elocutionist Soumitra Mitra. Talking about the digital show, Aapon Ghore Rabi Thakur, Pranati said, “The technical execution of the event is being done by Suprovo Tagore & Ritwika Chaudhuri of Shriek of Silence. Every year, on Rabindra Jayanti we all do various stage shows but this year the scene is completely different due to the coronavirus outbreak and the ongoing lockdown. So we thought of paying our tribute to Tagore by collaborating with over 72 artistes. They have sent us videos of their song, solo or group dance, recitation or readings of excerpts from Tagore’s work. All of this is done entirely from their homes. The videos will be streamed from 9 am onwards on May 8.” The artistes who are participating in this marathon tribute to Rabindranath Tagore include Joy Goswami, Lopamudra Mitra, Sahana Bajpaie, Subodh Sarkar, Tanushree Shankar, Srabani Sen, Jagannath Basu, Urmimala Basu, Swagatalaxmi Dasgupta, Saheb Chatterjee and Pranati herself, among others. Interdisciplinary artiste Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee, who is also a part of the show, said, “”I have sung for this online homage. My song is Aloker Ei Jhornadharaye. The idea of the show is to talk about light and hope in these dismal times.”
