Interdisciplinary artist Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee has surely innovated a new genre of digital communication in these times of pandemic. He was the first to begin online classes of elocution and voice dynamics and has been mentoring 33 people across India, USA, UK, Australia, and Canada.
To celebrate the 159th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, this online wing of SPCkraft launched a Youtube video of these 33 participants who recited verses of BHARATTIRTHA as a tribute to all the frontline warriors of the disease. These participants, who are locked down in their spaces, read this poem in turns and shoot themselves on their phones.
The video is being designed by Arka Goswami. “The future is uncertain. Too many lives have been laid down. In these dark times, we shall use this poem as a prayer to heal the country and I am glad that all of my members of this online community have come together to show their allegiance to the country”, Said Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee, founder of SPCkraft, the city’s only interdisciplinary arts collective. Actress Rituparna Sengupta also thanked SPCKraft for this initiative.
