TheatreNama with Sunil Shanbag

----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- -----


Mumbai’s Tamaasha Theatre's monthly series TheatreNama on Insider, presents fascinating slices of contemporary theatre history, and theatre making. Here are details about our second session !


Playing to Bombay


The rich variety and sheer quantity of theatre practice in Mumbai is perhaps unmatched anywhere in India. This diversity is hardly surprising given that Mumbai is a city built by migrants of all classes and creeds. Inevitably this is also reflected in its theatre practice.


And Mumbai’s theatre history resonates with amazing stories.


Show hosts Sunil Shanbag and Sharmistha Saha map Mumbai’s early theatre history from the first Bombay Theatre in 1776 to the flourishing Grant Road theatre district.


Listen to Vishnudas Bhave talk about his first impressions of the European Grant Road Theatre in Bombay in 1853, and learn how he went on to lay the foundations for modern Marathi theatre.


Watch a black-face minstrel act by the famous American performer Dave Carson!


Going forward, see how Jyotiba Phule used folk forms like tamasha and powada to talk against caste discrimination.


Trace the journey of Marathi Sangit Natak with Rahul Deshpande, the accomplished singer/actor, and its revival as a theatre form with Nipun Dharmadhikari one of our most talented young directors.


All this and more in TheatreNama with Sunil Shanbag !
