Back to the Golden Age

Few know that the first ‘modern’ Marathi performance took place around 1843 and was derived from folk forms and Shakespearean and Parsi dramas. From the 1800s, Marathi theatre has been strengthening its roots and steadily laying its foundations in the theatre circuit in Mumbai, leading to the recently organised festival called Pratibimb Marathi Natya.
 
Deepa Gahlot, Head of Programming (Theatre and Film) tells us, “It is with great pleasure that we announce the second edition of the NCPA Pratibimb Marathi Natya Utsav. The plays this year represent the best of Marathi theatre over the years as well as the adventurous spirit of today's youth. We hope that sustained activity on the Marathi theatre front will soon make the NCPA a hub of everything new and exciting that comes up on the Marathi Rangabhoomi.”
 
As part of the festival, they present a photography exhibition on the ‘Golden Age of Marathi Theatre’ in collaboration with the Directorate of Cultural Affairs, Government of Maharashtra. The photographs span from the birth of Marathi Theatre to its progress against the socio-political background of the 60s. Head down to NCPA to get a glimpse of the past.
