GREEN EARTH – SHOBUJER OBHIJAAN Poster (Sounak Chattopadhyay - Chinton)

Kolkata, May 10 - It is a pleasure to write to you about my new production after 2 years. My production house Chinton has been showcasing concept shows in Kolkata since 2009. The last one we did was in 2013. It was titled “Green Earth – Shaymol Sukher Dhora” its theme was the relevance of Tagore’s ideology of the harmony of man and Nature, in the perspective of modern day human interference and climate change.

The success of the show had made me think many a time about repeating it again and finally this Rabindra-paksha, I am going to present the 2nd chapter of this concert:

“GREEN EARTH – SHOBUJER OBHIJAAN”

If the issue was relevant in 2013, it is more relevant today, with the Paris conference ended some months ago and with highest temperatures breaking global records successively in the last two years. Our own city Kolkata has been reeling under an unprecedented heat wave for over a month now.

It is with these thoughts in mind that we have planned to present a second edition of this show in a bigger and grander way in the summer of 2016. The month of May is peak summer and a peak cultural season in Kolkata as well owing to the Rabindra Jayanti – birthday of Rabindranath Tagore – 8th May.

Chinton is all set to for “Green Earth – SHOBUJER OBHIJAAN” on Friday, the 13th of May in Kalamandir auditorium in Kolkata. The content will be a collage of exquisite dance, traditional and fusion music, narrations and elements of theatre.

The STAR CAST for this concert is:

  • PRAMITA MALLICK – Legendary Rabindrasangeet exponent
  • KAUSHIK SEN – reputed actor, theatre personality and social activist
  • CHURNI GANGULY – renowned actor and national award winning film director
  • TANUSREE SHANKAR – Internationally acclaimed dancer and choreographer.
  • SOUNAK CHATTOPADHYAY – concept script and vocals.
  • Sumantra Sengupta and Samya Karpha on additional recitation.

Please see the attachment for the poster of this program. In case you happen to be in Kolkata at this time, do try to find some time and just hop in. Do also feel free to share this with your friends and relatives who may be in Kolkata and interested to come to the show.Will hope to see you in Kalamandir if possible and will also appreciate your feedback if you get a chance to see the concert. Right after the concert and after finishing some back to back concerts in Kolkata, will be touring Australia and the UK over the rest of May and June. Will hope to remain in touch with you on emails and facebook.

Have a great and pleasant summer ahead.

Musically Yours,

Sounak
