Leading theatre troupes will be performing daily in the Ranga Shankara foyer, presenting rehearsed readings and theatre songs every evening. The program will start on Tue, 15 Dec 2020, with a rendering of renowned film and theatre personality B V Karanth’s theatre songs by Kannada theatre troupe ‘Benaka’. This will be followed by a rehearsed reading of Girish Karnad’s highly-acclaimed play, ‘Tughlaq’, by Kannada troupe ‘Samudaya’.
The activities will take place between 5:30 and 6:45 PM every day in the Ranga Shankara foyer. The sessions are free of cost for audiences and will follow all social distancing measures and Government rules. Other popular English and Kannada troupes and artistes, such as Kalagangotri, Kahe Vidushak, Abhinaya Taranga, Shwetha Shrinivas, and Sandeep Shikhar, to name a few, will also present evenings of rehearsed play readings and theatre songs.
“We have started our foyer activities in the form of ‘RS Connect’ and it is very heartening to see people coming back to the safe environment of Ranga Shankara. We hope to open the theatre soon for our regular activities and our troupes came up with the idea of starting off by performing in the foyer. Hence, this awesome line-up!”, said Arundhati Nag.

Festival of Theatre for Children and Equal, all contributing to the richness of the cultural fabric of not just Bangalore, but India, too.
