Greenland in association with Darpani
to present Gurudev’s Shyama in an innovative and glorious form
Kolkata, July 3, 2012: India Green Reality Pvt. Ltd., a company that provides real quality constructions and deluxe living spaces in association with Darpani, a premiere dance institution, have come up with the distinctive idea of organizing one of the most notable and distinguished harmonious dramas of Tagore, Shyama – The Dusky Dame, announced by Amitava Samanta, Director, India Green Reality Pvt. Ltd. and dance guru Arnab Bandhopadhyay, the founder of Darpani at a Press Conference.
Shyama is one of the three dance musicals written by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore that not only reﬂects Tagore’s artistic and philosophical response to both the turbulence and turmoil of pre-Independence of India but also Hitler’s persecution and maltreatment of Jews in Germany. The story of Shyama is based on a Buddhist legend, about which Tagore had written a poem, Parishodh (Repayment), in 1899. This was what he expanded and developed into the full dance musical Shyama.
Shyama is essentially a romantic tragedy, though there are two love stories entwined, both of Shyama and Bajrosen, who are initially both in search of their ideal partners, and that of the unexpressed, unilateral love Uttiyo has for Shyama which leads Uttiyo to sacriﬁce himself for her happiness. Shyama is known to many of the 230 million Bengali-speaking people around the world and many of the songs are also well-liked and much loved in their own right.
Tagore's last key work for the stage that illustrates the exclusive and matchless permutation of song, dance and color, we have decided to showcase it in the present ethnicity with a touch of vibrant and aesthetic customs.”said
Arnab Bandhopadhyay, the dance guru and the creator of Darpani, further added, “The sole aim of portraying Shyama is to restore the rich cultural heritage of Bengal and to unleash the true spirit of dance by the amalgam of the classical dance forms and the ever evolving art of choreography. We want that the grand work piece of Tagore should be revived whenever feasible reaching millions of hearts every time so that the ensemble cast of this bona fide, colorful, widescreen film version should never be forgotten.”
This extraordinary dance musical drama of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, Shyama, would be performed at G.D. Birla Sabhaghar on July 8, 2012 by Arnab and his troupe (Darpani) who is believed to have performed in the prestigious Dance festivals earning huge accolades in the grand presence of eminent and legendary personalities like Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Sraboni Sen, Satinath Mukhopadhyay , Soumili Biswas and many others to make the evening unforgettable and remarkable. The artistic and creative ambience would definitely engrave and leave an everlasting and eternal impression in the hearts of thousands of people.
