The Maya Tree Council at the Department of Liberal Arts, Beaconhouse National University, in collaboration with the Char Gram and BNU Music Societies is happy to invite Lahore’s literati, poetry buffs and performing arts fans to Rux-e-Bismil, rewound.
On Saturday, 26th May, 2012, Rux-e-bismil will be showcasing some of the most talented performers within BNU’s own student body at Alhamra Cultural Complex. The event opens with an extraordinary dance performance choreographed and performed by Chargram, which will set the mood for performance poetry set to music. Once the poets have had their say, prose will naturally take the audience through the night but with the insertion of some theatrical twists that are sure to be in a league of their own.
Not only this, in honour of Manto’s Centenary, Rux-e-Bismil will offer Lahore a chance to view Manto’s Intezaar in a style that has never been witnessed before, while remaining true to the essence of the original.
The BNU Music Society will conclude with a concert, covering some of the most renowned songs along with some of their original pieces, bringing the evening to a raucous close.
Rux-e-Bismil is an event that hopes to bring together the masses by putting together an event which celebrates basic human emotions, desires, hopes and fears; things which everybody can relate to and thus, empathize with. It carries forth a message of solidarity and resistance of oppression whether it is physical, intellectual or emotional. We hope you do us the honour of joining us on Saturday 26 May at 7:00 pm at the Alhamra Cultural Complex, near Gadaffi Stadium to witness a truly aesthetic and magical night.
