TAG to Remember Lucasinho Ribeiro

From: "Tiatr Academy Goa"

TAG to Remember Lucasinho Ribeiro

Tiatr Academy of Goa (TAG) will for the first time celebrate the birth anniversary
of Lucasinho Ribeiro, pioneer of Goan Tiatr, who scripted, directed and staged the
first Tiatr "Italian Bhurgo" on 17th April, 1892 in Bombay. Lucasinho Ribeiro was
born on 2nd January 1863 at sokol Vaddo, Assagao, Bardez, Goa.


Lucasinho Ribeiro is responsible to give birth to a unique dramatic form called
Tiatr in which the story of the play is divided into 6 or 7 acts and songs or
kantaran are sung in between the two acts which have no relevance to the theme of
the play. The first tiatr "Italian Bhurgo" that he scripted, directed and staged 117
years back was an adaptation of an Italian Opera. Joao Agostinho Fernandes, who is
popularly known as Father of Tiatr considered Lucasinho Ribeiro as his 'Guru'.

In order to keep alive the memories of this great tiatr personality, TAG has
organized a function to celebrate the birthday of Lucasinho Ribeiro on 2nd January,
2010 at 4.30 p.m. at the Black Box, Kala Academy, Panjim. The function will begin
with a programme of songs and humorous skits by popular artistes of the the Tiatr
stage. All tiatr artistes and tiatr lovers are requested to attend the function. It
is open to public.
