Theatre rising like phoenix: Badigera

He was addressing the audience after inaugurating play festival organised by Rangabhoomi troupe of Udupi and Rangavahini of Chamarajanagar, at J H Patel Auditorium here on Sunday.

Stating that theatre was receiving fresh lease of life even amidst the challenges posed by television and cinema, Badigera said a value like integrity is hard to find in every growing city like Bangalore.

Level

“Only if theatre enthusiasts come together, can they take theatre to different level,” he said. 

Every district in the state has an auditorium and Chamarajanagar too will get an auditorium soon, with the works nearing completion. This will provide boost to the theatre activities in the district.

It would be suitable to name the theatre after thespian Rajkumar, he said. Former MLA S Balaraj, who also spoke on the occasion, said television programmes were mostly farce. However, only theatre can create space for the truth.

Only truth

With actors and director being face-to-face with audience, they have to speak only truth, he said.

In order to bring up children as responsible citizens for better future of the country, we need to create an atmosphere where theatre can thrive in schools, he said.

CUDA former chairman M Ramachandru, Sub inspector Janardhan, Rangavahini Chairman C M Narasimhamurthy and others were present on the occasion.

Rangabhoomi troupe of Udupi presented ‘Sambashiva Prahasana’ on the occasion, which was highly appreciated by the audience.
