Shakespearean influence 'destroyed traditional Urdu drama'
Islamabad: The four-day series of lectures and dialogues on the evolution
of Urdu drama and theatre continued on its third-day at National Art Gallery on
Friday with National Academy of Performing Art chairman and renowned
litro-cultural icon Zia Moheyuddin's presentation on Agha Hashr Kashmiri's
'Safed Khoon' and Russian scholar Dr. Anna Suvorova's lecture 'Shakespearean
influence on Urdu drama and theatre'.
The series of lectures and
performances organised by NCA Rawalpindi Campus is being held with the support
of Higher Education Commission and Pakistan National Council of the Arts. Apart
from sharing their views with a large number of distinguished scholars and
intellectuals from the twin metropolis, both Dr. Anna and Zia Moheyuddin also
chaired the discussion forum that led to an interesting interaction on Urdu
drama and theatre.
While giving an elaborate lecture on the historical
perspective, Dr. Anna said that the Shakespearean influence completely destroyed
the traditional Urdu drama and theatre in the sub-continent and replaced with
new versions of translations and adaptations from Shakespeare plays, mostly
Quoting from German scholar Goethe, 'To build a nation, you
must first build its theatre', Dr. Anna said 'the contaminating effect of
Shakespearean aspect gradually destroyed the traditional aesthetics of Urdu
drama'. Dr. Anna said that the British system of education introduced
Shakespeare in the region and his work was translated by most prominent writers
in almost all languages of this region. She said that Shakespeare was considered
as a symbol of art and literature in South Asia, but while translating and
adapting his work, some of the aspects were regarded as unacceptable as per
local cultural norms and were played down, especially the passion and sensuality
in Shakespearean plays.
The short video clip presentation by Zia
Moheyuddin 'Staging Safed Khoon', based on extracts of Agha Hashr Kashmiri's
original play, was a presentation of National Academy of Performing Arts, the
first such institution in Pakistan established by Zia Moheyuddin. Directed by
Zia Moheyuddin, the play was done in 2008, and was the first presentation in its
entirety. Zia Moheyuddin said that the play was based on a distorted version of
original 'King Lear' by Shakespeare coming out of England in which 'All lives
happily ever after' concept was taken, opposite to that of the original play,
which Zia regarded as a great injustice to the great tragedy of Shakespeare.
Talking about the central aspect of Agha Hashr Kashmiri's original
dramaturgies and the challenges they posed to modern theatricality, Zia said
that though the original play was very lengthy and had about 21 musical
renditions, but he incorporated only a couple of chorus and Doha. Though the
play was shortened down to 2 hours to suit local taste, but the text was kept
complete, he added.
