Save Theatre

MISSION- SAVE THEATRE

Chhaon had conducted a survey on “Theatre Art” in Delhi NCR in 2014 and asked the following questions:

Q1 (to general public) “How much do you know about Theatre Art” and we had stunning answers, some of which are these:
                “Nahi mai nahi jaanta theatre kya hota hai… achha picture hall?”
                “Cinema hall me jo design hota hai, shayad wohi theatre art hota hai.”
                “Ye kaun sa art hai?”Promote Theatre Save Theatre Movement

When we further clarified that we call it “Naatak” in Hindi. They said..
                “Kaun se channel pe… kaun sa naatak?”
                “Wo jo road pe chilla-chilla ke gaana gaate hain, wo naatak? Bahut achha hota hai.”
                “Haan maine dekha hai… wo nukkad naatak na?”
                “Stage wala naatak? Nahi… bachpan me gaon me nautanki zaroor dekhi thi”

Results: 95% people had mistaken Theatre Art with Cinema Hall at their first attempt; 72% people had mistaken naatak with TV Serials; when explained fully, 98% people haven’t seen a Theater Play (However 83% have seen Plays in School life). And this is the survey result in the Capital of India, which is one of the regions where Theatre Art is most active.


 

Q2 (to Theatre Artists) “Are you enjoying your Theatre career” Some of the answers were…
                “Yah, a lot… but soon I will leave for Mumbai for Films & TV.”
                “Theater is a great thing to learn acting. A good theatre actor gets good opportunity in Cinema & Serials.”Mass Theatre 2
                “Yes, but my family doesn’t support me for this. Because there isn’t a satisfactory income in Theatre.”
                “Do theatre to improve, but don’t do it for life. It will be a waste”
                “I can’t live without theatre but if I wouldn’t have a job, it had been difficult to survive in theatre.”
                “In terms of earning, I am not enjoying. Even a Vegetable seller earns more than me.”

Results: 89% Theatre artists want to go for Cinema/TV industry. 11% want to remain in Theatre, out of which 10% are facing difficulties in doing theatre.


 

Q3 (to Theatre Groups) “Do you face any problems in doing Theatre” Some of the answers were…

      “Cost of booking Auditoriums are growing high. It’s getting difficult to book dates. Those who charge less, don’t allow to sell tickets. We don’t get good returns from shows, mostly we bear losses.”

      “There is a shortage of rehearsal spaces. Many groups rehearse their play in parks, public places where their privacy has to be compromised.”

      “We don’t get returns from shows, and so can’t pay our actors. Therefore, actors don’t remain permanent.”

      “Reach of theater is very limited. There are very less auditoriums made for Theatre Plays.”

      “We don’t invest our pocket money in Performing Theater. We receive govt. grants for theatre plays. But we manage to perform 1-2 plays only. The play prepared with a hard work of 30-40 days reaches 300-400 people only. Govt. doesn’t do anything for further shows.”

Results: only 15% groups get govt. grants for plays; Theatre Art reaches only 1.2% of total population. 96% groups are facing problems in doing Theatre.

Theatre ki soorat ab badalne ka waqt aa gaya hai,
nikal pade hain janbaz, ‘RANG’ se duniya rangne ko,
ab tawareekh me naye waraq likhne ka waqt aa gaya hai.
Theatre ki soorat ab badalne ka waqt aa gaya hai.

Ab na chhodne denge maidan rangbaazo ko,
ab na badalne denge ham suro aur saazo ko,
phir se wo tarana chhedne ka waqt aa gaya hai,
Theatre ki soorat ab badalne ka waqt aa gaya hai.

baithtey the jo sar ankho pe, wo hi ab khone lage,
kitabo me ghar kar kar, swar bhi kyo sone lage,
panno me soye lafzo ke, ab jaagne ka waqt aa gaya hai,
Theatre ki soorat ab badalne ka waqt aa gaya hai.
