Jul 6: World Tibet Day
'Dear friend, Once again World Tibet Day is approaching. As you are aware, July 6, the birthday of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is observed as World Tibet Day by Tibetans and their supporters worldwide.
Founded in 1998 by Richard Rosenkranz, a Pulitzer Prize nominee in history, World Tibet Day was created with three main goals: first to create an annual worldwide event to help restore essential freedoms for those living in Chinese-occupied Tibet; second to increase awareness of the genocidal threats to the Tibetan people; and third, to celebrate the unique beauty and value of Tibetan culture and thought. World Tibet Day has grown into one of the most important events on the Tibetan calendar. The event is held on July 6 . birthday of His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama.
2008 is particularly important to all of us. Like never before, the Tibetans have started their revolt against the brutal Chinese regime, whose repressive actions resulted in the deaths of more than 200 Tibetans this year, and even more significantly, which have resulted in the deaths of over one 1.2 million Tibetans since the Chinese invasion began in 1950. The Chinese government continues to suppress those who dare to express their opinions. We believe that
World Tibet Day is an opportunity for those who live in free countries to show their solidarity with the six million Tibetans living under military rule.
We are asking you and/or your organisation to join us in observing July 6 (Sunday) as World Tibet Day in your locality/country. Please send us a small note at: info@worldtibetday. org on what you plan to do on this day.
Please go to our website (www.worldtibetday. org) for helpful ideas on staging the event, and for a Message on WTD from HH the Dalai Lama. Thank you.

Jun 24: The Invisible River in London
"Before their departure for London , the 12-person company of Artistes' Repertory Theatre are presenting The Invisible River by Gautam Raja.
A bacteria ridden sample of Ganga water clears, as if by magic, in a few hours. Uma, the scientist, is intensely curious and Padma, the politician, sets her sights on this new found source of power. For others living on the banks of the holy river in holy Allahabad , life goes on as usual...or does it?
With solid scientific advice from Dr. Mukund Thattai of NCBS, Gautam Raja has created a play that will keep you pondering the plot long after you leave the theatre.
The Invisible River, directed by Ruchika Chanana is at Chowdiah Memorial Hall on Tuesday, 24 June at 8.00 P.M. The company proceeds to London for performances at the Nehru Centre and at the Lilian Baylis Theatre.
Tickets are available at the Crossword outlet on Residency Road.

Jul 10-11: Wedding Album- Girish Karnad's latest play, directed by lillete Dubey
and in support of
India Foundation for the Arts
Bangalore – July 10th & 11th, 2008
Time: 7.30, Duration : 90 min
Venue: Chowdiah Memorial Hall
'WEDDING ALBUM' is Girish Karnad's latest play. It is a wonderful, comic drama in English, that is modern, relevant and revelatory about the India that we live in today. The play is a first of sorts, even for him, for it is his first full length contemporary play.
The play will be produced and directed by Lilette Dubey and will have a top notch cast from the Mumbai stage including old regulars like Joy Sengupta, Suchitra Pillai, Zafar Karachiwala, Jayati Bhatia, Deepika Deshpande, Ira Dubey and others, and the best possible technical crew.
Traditionally the girl used to marry a boy from the neighbouring village. In the globalized village, the ‘neighbourhood’ can be any corner of the earth. In the past, the bridal couple often saw each other for the first time on the wedding podium. Today a million emails, SMS’s, phonecalls, tapes and scanned images introduce them to each other.
Yet one element of the plot remains unchanged: the couple agrees to enter an unknown, uncharted territory--- each other.
The play, Wedding Album, deals with a normal urban middle- class family: a daughter who lives abroad with her professional husband, a brother who is a software designer, a younger daughter happy enough to marry a suitable boy from the US she has never met, and then, of course, there is the doting mother and the loyal cook. A family, which is educated, liberal, modern. Yet each snapshot shows its members frozen in a technological, globalized projection of respectability but each figure has a double image, with a penumbra of a hidden life. It’s a hilarious spectacle. And hopefully, moving !!!

Jun 27/28: Aladdin - Children's Play
"The students of Bangalore School of Speech and Drama will be performing Aladdin at Chowdiah Memorial Hall on June 27th and 28th 2008 at 7:00 PM
What makes this production unique is that it is not the familiar Disney version, rather a retelling of the original Chinese folktale in the form of a hilarious pantomime. Thrown in for good measure is some foot-tapping music and dance. You just might be enthralled by the power-packed performances of the children aged 5-19 years.
So do come in with family and friends for what promises to be an unforgettable evening.

Ranga Shankara Jun 2008 Schedule
Apart from the fantastic line-up of plays, we are bringing back our "Other Voices" program in June. On May 31 (Sat) and Jun 1 (Sun), Claire Denieul, a theatre practitioner from France stages August Strindberg's "The Stronger" at 9:30 PM. Be tuned to announcements of a few more "Other Voices" shows in June.
Just to recap, the "Other Voices" program introduced in Ranga Shankara's Fest '07 brings theatre into an intimate performing space and an audience of not more than 25. Revathi Menon and Rehaan Engineer performed during Fest '07 that gave the "Other Voices" program a solid start. Tickets for the "Other Voices" shows are available 30 minutes before the show at Ranga Shankara and the duration of the show is less than 30 minutes.
Praise for "The Stronger"
Strindberg creates an episode of incredible, poetic power – a snapshot of life so intense, so powerful, that it rivals Beckett at his best. Like a Kafka short story, "The Stronger" is rich in allegory and lends itself to many layers of interpretation. One can easily spend hours thinking about it after the show ends. It is moreover, a powerful play, one that makes a deep impression, and leaves one with the illusion that one has travelled far and seen much, even though the entire thing is actually incredibly short.
See you at RS then!-- Theatre Alive!
