C.Alvares Remembered

C.Alvares Remembered

Kala Mogi Candolim and Tiatr Academy of Goa (TAG) organised a discussion on
‘C. Alvares’s Contribution to Tiatr Stage’ on 1st August 2010 at 5 pm at TAG’s Conference Hall to mark the 89th Birth anniversary of late C. Alvares.

Ciriaco Dias, a veteran tiatr artiste and a close friend of late C.Alvares spoke extensively on the life and the works of late C.Alvares. He informed that late C.Alvares has written 107 tiatrs besides acting in thousands of tiatrs during the span of almost 50 years that he served the tiatr stage. Although he was one of the greatest tiatr artistes of tiatr stage, he was not recognised by Goa Government when he was alive, he lamented.

Sharon Mazarello, a singer of repute who also sung duets with late C.Alvares spoke on the lyrics and songs of late C. Alvares. She remarked that the lyrics composed by late C.Alvares were of high quality and named the songs he composed for the films namely ‘Amchem Noxib’ and ‘Nirmonn’, which have become immortal in the recent times.

Expressing her experience as a co-singer of duets with Alvares she stressed that late C.Alvares was a perfectionist and that he took care of all aspects of presentation before coming on the stage.

Tomazinho Cardozo, President of TAG who coordinated the discussion stated that personalities like late C.Alvares should be kept alive in the minds of younger generations because they are the true icons of tiatr stage. He appealed to all tiatr loving people particularly writers and researchers to come forward and to do research on the tiatrs written and songs composed by the tiatr artistes of yesteryears like C.Alvares, Chris Perry, Alfred Rose, Minguel Rod, Alexinho de Candolim etc. He assured that TAG will support such projects whole heartedly. In the discussion that followed, Succoro de Santa Cruz, Irene Cardozo, Anil Kumar, Mathew D’Souza and others actively participated.

Earlier Irene Cardozo welcomed and later Joy Fernandes proposed a vote of thanks.
