23rd March, 2017- Celebrating World Theatre Day

The Bricoleurs, English Literary Society of the Department collectively remembered the theatre activists of the world to celebrate this day.

A lecture- demonstration on the trajectory of theatre activism was delivered by Sudipto Mukhopadhyay, on this occasion.

We must believe in a sense of life renewed by the theater, a sense of life in which man fearlessly makes himself master of what does not yet exist, and brings it into being. And everything that has not been born can still be brought to life if we are not satisfied to remain mere recording organisms.


I call for actors burning at the stakes, laughing at the flames.
