TAG’s November Celebrations

Tiatr Academy of Goa has many celebrations in line planned for the month of November 2012.

Birth anniversary of Regina Fernandes: Every year on November 16, Tiatr Academy celebrates the birth, the first lady of tiatr stage. This year, the celebrations will be held on Friday, November 16, at 11 a.m. at Big Foot, Loutolim.

Big Foot has come out with the idea of setting up a gallery of ‘Tiatrist Hall of Fame’ in line with Hollywood Hall of Fame wherein the handprints of well known tiatr artistes will be displayed along with a brief bio data of the valuable contributions of the concerned artiste to the tiatr stage.

Dayanand Mandrekar, Minister for Art and Culture will inaugurate this event in the presence of Vishnu Surya Wagh, chairman of Kala Academy who will be the guest of honour.

Sketch the Tiatr Artistes: Tiatr Academy of Goa in collaboration with Tiatr Times will organize Sketch the Tiatr Artistes on November 28, 2012 from 6p.m. to 10 p.m. along the banks of River Mandovi near ESG during the IFFI celebrations. Fine artistes will be invited to sketch the tiatr artistes who are interested to have themselves sketched. The sketched portrait will be preserved by TAG as documentation in its library. All the tiatr artistes are requested to kindly take note of all the three programmes and are invited to participate in these events. [NT]
