Tiatr Day 2010

Tiatr is a powerful means of mass communication: Eduardo


Commissioner for NRI Affairs, Eduardo Faleiro said that the tiatr is a part of the cultural heritage of the Goan people and it is also a powerful means of mass communication.

Faleiro was speaking after felicitating six senior tiatr artistes for their outstanding contribution towards development of tiatr state in Goa. He said, the tiatr is not just a successful form of entertainment, it is a grassroots imitative that has survived and thrived over time.

He congratulated the Kala academy for celebrating Tiatr Day and for holding one act play competition to promote and encourage young talented artists in this field.
Speaking further Faleiro said that attendance at tiatr performances has increased greatly over the years. Tiatr has also been a regular feature of the Global Goans Conventions which are held abroad every year for expatriate Goans whether in Muscat, Toronto or elsewhere.

Anthony Fernandes (Roseferns) renowned tiatrist also spoke on the occasion.
Faleiro also presented prizes to the winners of 35th Tiatr competition and 8th Canataram singing competition.

Faleiro said that tiatrists from Goa compare favourably with the best dramatic performers anywhere in the world. However, we do live in the age of specialization. The tasks of the script writer, director and actor are different and required different. Some of the leading tiatrists have specialised in one or the other area of tiatr and this specialisation is necessary it tiatr is to attain even greater heights, he added.

Earlier, Paresh Joshi, vice chairperson of Kala Academy welcome the guests.
Teotonio D’Costa compered while Dr Pandurang Phaldesai, Member Secretary proposed vote of thanks.

Well known tiatr artistes Luis Bacchan and Domnic, Pitush and Agnel staged skit and C D'Silva and group presented canto and cantaram.
