Essex Indians present Uttorsuri – Generation Next, a fund raising concert for charities locally and globally. This is third season of this event. The programme consists of two dramas preformed by talented artists of Essex Indians directed by Dr Arpita Ray. The evening unveils with the performance by Essex Indians children in ‘A Thousand Cranes’. The story of Kathryn Schultz-Miller’s short play is a memoir of Sadako’s short life, her lust for life and despair against the Hiroshima bombing. Audiences will revisit the Hiroshima bombing as an inhuman act. The production of ‘A Thousand Cranes’ demands resilience, imagination for a better future along with the willingness to face reality and a desire for peace. In this production young actors will definitely stir the mature audience’s theatrical imagination by painting a different world that seems familiar to a child’s vision and not losing hope.

Second half of the show will stage Indian Polymath Tagore’s immortal creation ‘Raktakarabi’. Myriad Production has staged English translation Red Oleander in 2006. Raktakarabi is a challenging project as its showcases the modern day conflict between Man and Machine. Though it was written almost 90 years back its message is still contemporary. It inextricably intertwines state repression, social exploitation, torment and misery current in our own time and there is also a wail in it – a wail raising hopes of freedom from these evils. Nandini, central character, is a symbol of life and tries to teach how to celebrate life.

Charity fund raising concert for MencapCityofChelmsford, Restless Beings, Anwesha, and Raina Orphanage.
