Ekjon Ruhul Amin

BotTala’s first play is a street drama named “Ekjon Ruhul Amin”, story by Samina Luthfa Nitra, written and directed by Bratto Amin. “Ekjon Ruhul Amin” is a drama based on the thoughts of Ruhul Amin who was killed while demolishing a building and was hung there for 6 days.

The play is an allegorical one and the resemblance with a contemporary incidence in Bangladesh was the basis of a short story on which the play …revolves. Ruhul Amin surrealistically talks to insects, birds and ants while he is already dead and is hung for days and none came to rescue his body from the debris.There were troupe’s from law enforcement and fire services, as well as engineering experts but none tried to rescue the bodies. Amidst of hue and cry from the relatives and families of the dead and undecipherable code language of the public servants that was not known to the public the dead bodies remained stuck in the debris of the fallen building.This is Bratto Amin’s debut play, which is both written and directed by him.

This event is very important since it marks the first step of BotTala – a performance space into its long awaited journey in theatrical excellence while echoing the voice of the subaltern with a hope of creative agency to people.
