The get-together will debate the dark sides of the recent trend wherein local theatre has been highly influenced by the ‘corporates’. The forum will also serve as a get-together of contemporary and yesteryear theatre artists.

Renowned theatre personalities including Nilamboor Ayesha, Civic Chandran, Joy Mathew, Lenin Rajendran, Karivalloor Murali, N Sasidharan, Suveeran, Pramod Payyanoor and Jayaraj Warrier among others will take part at the meet.As part of the programme, various sessions and debates will be held.

“Nadinnakam Natakam is aimed at highlighting the state of the present theatre scenario which has been relegated to something like an ‘annual fest’. We aim to portray the power of theatre which is an effective weapon against the suppressions and exploitations faced by our society. It is a tool towards building a civilisation,” said Ajayan, the director of Act a Centre for Theatre.

The drama to be staged as part of the programme include ‘Abhinandanangal Konduengane Vishappumattam’ directed by G Ajayan and ‘Mucheetukalikkarante Makal’ by C S Vishnuraj.
