Dilemmas With my flamenco tail coat (2)নাটক কাহিনী:
নাটকটি নৃত্যকলার সাথে যুক্ত একজন নারীর প্রতি সমাজের দৃষ্টিভঙ্গি উপস্থাপন করে। সেই নারী মঞ্চে তার চরিত্রটি ফুটিয়ে তোলার মাধ্যমে মানবতার অধরা সাংস্কৃতিক ঐতিহ্যের অংশ হয়ে যায়, যে ঐতিহ্যকে স্বীকৃতি দিয়েছে ইউনেস্কো।
গল্পটি ইসাবেল ভালদেরামা’র- যিনি ‘সোনালী নক্ষত্র’ নামে পরিচিত, তার জীবনকে কেন্দ্র করে তৈরী হয়েছে। তার অভিজ্ঞতা এবং নৃত্য ও তাঁর জীবনের গুরুত্বপূর্ণ গল্প নিয়ে তৈরী এ নাটকে ফ্ল্যামেনকো নাচ কি করে ধীরে ধীরে বেড়ে উঠেছে তা বলা হয়েছে।

The play tells us how a woman who was engaged in dance was considered by society and how she developed her role on stage in a culture made intangible heritage of humanity by UNESCO.
The whole story is wrapped in the story of Isabelle Valderramas, known as the golden star. Through her experiences and dance, and interesting story of her life how flamenco dancing by women has evolved over the years is told.




Published by BotTala - a performance space

Theatre Technology, Aesthetics and Language through Action. It is an open space for performance that symbolizes the origin of rituals and performances in pre colonial Bengal. BotTala also signifies the great tradition of open oratory, poetry, music of Bengal and symbol of public space that belongs to none in specific but to all in general. BotTala as a performance space of twenty first century aspires to provide such an open platform to all theatre activists home and abroad to engage in their creative and intellectual endeavours. We, despite all odds, dream for a space promoting theatre for people, to search for tradition and heritage to speak up for the present and future. We also believe that there is no theatre estranged from politics and as such no politics detached from theatre of the colonial east. Therefore, BotTala’s theatre can never be removed from its base in history and tradition of Humanity as well as its vision for a changed tomorrow challenging authority in today’s theatre. As such, BotTala intend to encourage a space for professional theatre activism, which entails professional attitudes and behaviour in present forms of theatre and activism. BotTala calls for participation from all spheres of cultural activists and citizenry of the global village to engage, encourage, promote and support a new era in theatre activism and towards creating a new phase of cultural solidarity through BotTola.
