Event Description

Janashatru' is written and directed by renowned Kannada playwright, director, and former Artistic Director of Ranga Shankara, S Surendranath. Based on Henrik Ibsen's 'An Enemy of the People', the play is a result of Surendranath being awarded the coveted Ibsen Scholarship in 2019, an international fund for theatre performances celebrating the works of the great Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. He was awarded the scholarship for his project "Culturing Voices through Act IV of An Enemy of the People". The play features prominent theatre artistes B V Shrunga, Keerthi Bhanu, Ganesh Shenoy, and Raag Urs.

 

 In a democratic government, the majority always denies liberty to individuals, refuses to acknowledge an individual’s right to live, thereby destroying the self-determination of an individual. This decimation of individual rights has been recorded across continents and epochs. What happens to individuals in such a tyrannical, majoritarian atmosphere? Voices are silenced. The individual’s freedom of expression is erased. Only the relentless defense of individual liberty can counter the majoritarianism of our times. It is, at this point, necessary to raise a voice against these trends, however little that voice may be. The production, “Jana Shatru”, addresses this individual plight and the determination of one individual. It also attempts to underscore the importance of being an individual in times of majoritarian democracy.
