Dramatic Moments - Theatre in Calcutta since the 60s - HARDBACK


Nemai Ghoshl

Published by Seagull Theatre

Nemai Ghosh is best known for his photographs of Satyajit Ray at work and in his more private moments and moods, and his stills from Ray's films

Ghosh has exhibited at Cannes in 1991, at London in 1992, and several times at Calcutta and Delhi, and published a selection of his Ray collection, Satyajit Ray at 70: Photographs by Nemai Ghosh, with a preface by Henri Cartier-Bresson (Brussels 1991)

His second collection of photographs forms a pictorial history of theatre in Calcutta over the last four decades. He concentrates on the experimental theatre groups of the city and its neighbourhood - more than a hundred of them active at any given point of time. The photographs capture the distinctive individualities of renowned directors, actors and actresses like Shombhu Mitra, Utpal Dutt, Tripti Mitra, Badal Sircar, Ajitesh Bandyopadhyay, Manoj Mitra, Bibhas Chakraborty, Kumar Roy, and others, in perfomance as well as in directorial presence

Commentaries by theatre critic Samik Bandyopadhyay contextualize the performances that are further illuminated by a selection of readings and memorabilia -poems, directors' notes, interviews, reminiscences
