Jagasia Related News The festival of plays from the fourth edition of Writers’ Bloc an initiative to groom new Indian playwrights kicks off at Mumbai’s Prithvi Theatre on April 1 withNaqqaash The play’s director Rajit Kapur one of the key intiators behind this workshop gives a lowdown on the journey so far For the previous edition of Writers’ Bloc you directed a powerful play calledMohua and this time NaqqaashWhat made you pick up this play It was Shernaz Patel who suggested that I should direct Naqqaash written by Asad Hussain and our theatre company Rage should produce it (Kapur along with Patel and Rahul da Cunha founded Rage which organises Writer’s Bloc) This is the third play at Writers’ Bloc that I am directing I have also directed Epilogue by Maia Katrak for the second Writer’s Bloc Set in a village without men Naqqaash raises the question: who is the oppressor who is the oppressed In Hindi it is very difficult to come across new writing that focuses on the text I was impressed by the language of Naqqaash and its richness It flows beautifully When you read a part of it you are instantly attracted to the play Each character in it is finely etched out Being one of the organisers of Writers’ Bloc how was the experience of watching the plays take shape After going through the process of creating new plays along with the playwrights — watching them move from a concept to a scene to writing an entire play — one can almost feel where the play is headed One also gets an impulsive feel of the writing and its writer First Writers’ Bloc was held in 2004 with the aim of nurturing young playwrights How effective has this step been In college we had come across several plays of literary value written in Hindi However we need to have a new crop of good Hindi playwrights who are fewer in number compared to their English counterparts We offer this one-of-its kind platform in collaboration with The Royal Court Theatre London Once the plays are ready we organise a festival to reach out to a larger audience The idea has also been to encourage writing of plays in different Indian languages This time we are staging two plays each in Hindi Marathi and English apart from a Tamil one for the first time We will also have the reading of Nandita DaCunha’s play Side Effects at Prithvi House How did you select plays for the upcoming festival We decided that in consultation with The Royal Court Last time Rage produced three plays out of 12 that were staged for the festival This year we have invited other groups to direct and produce the plays The idea is to involve the theatre community A couple of years ago you directed The Glass Menagerie What excites you more — classics or new writings It is always fascinating to balance the two Whether it is new writing or a classic I look at what I can offer as a director If I feel I can’t do justice to a certain play then I don’t touch it In case of Mohua I decided to direct it when I read its first draft A number of plays in Writers’ Bloc seem dark and talk about social issues If something bothers writers it reflects in their work Will you be taking the Writers’ Bloc festival to other cities of India After its run at Prithvi Theatre April 1-10 five of the plays will be staged at Mumbai’s National Centre Performing Arts (NCPA) The shows of the remaining two are scheduled in Bangalore’s Ranga Shankara We are also planning to hold an off-shoot of the festival with three plays in Delhi Shows and Tale Writers’ Bloc has lined up a series of events related to writing during its upcoming
