20-minute episode available on Rangayana website, YouTube and Facebook at 6.30 pm from today

Mysore/Mysuru: Former Director of Rangayana C. Basavalingaiah formally launched digital theatre series of “Kusumabaale,” a famous novel of Devanur Mahadeva at Rangayana last evening. This drama was directed by Basavalingaiah 26 years ago and staged in Rangayana. Now it has been brought out in digital form.

Speaking on the occasion, he appreciated the repertory for this unique experiment and wanted it to try out similar activities in the coming months to attract more people towards theatre. Rangayana has carved a niche in theatre activity in the entire country. It was a feat to watch it in digital format. The artistes could use the collar mike for clear voice and close-up shot of artistes could be shown while shooting for the coming projects.

On this occasion, senior theatre personality, B.V. Rajaram unveiled the canvas specially prepared for “Kusumabaale” by Dwarakanath. He stressed the need for establishing a theatre exhibition to record the footprints of this repertory for next generation. Non-documentation of record has hampered research by interested researchers. Old dramas staged in Rangayana must be brought out in digital form, he added.
