Artists: Drama sheds light on prob­lems, so­cial is­sues

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: A host of Kuwaiti artists have stressed that the mis­sion of TV drama is to trans­fer is­sues, prob­lems and in­ci­dents take place in the so­ci­ety to au­di­ence, not to solve them. Spec­ta­tors are artis­tic crit­ics, they said dur­ing a sem­i­nar themed ‘Gulf dra­mas and their role in chang­ing the im­age of so­ci­ety,’ held on the side­lines of the 40th edi­tion of Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Book Fair, which kicked off last Wed­nes­day and runs un­til Novem­ber 28.

Heba Ha­mada, a Kuwait writer, un­der­lined that writ­ers should be ac­quainted with the so­ci­ety’s is­sues, adding they seek to fo­cus on art­works per­tain­ing to so­cial and daily life. Ah­lam Has­san, a Kuwait ac­tress, said that there are many bur­dens on au­thors and direc­tors of drama as they should be keen on tra­di­tions of the Gulf so­ci­eties.

Shed­ding light on neg­a­tive as­pects and is­sues in the so­ci­ety aims to raise aware­ness of peo­ple about them, she said, adding Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion is able to re­vive the miss­ing part of the Kuwaiti drama.

Bashar Al-Kan­dari, a jour­nal­ist, said there are some mis­takes per­tain­ing to the Kuwaiti her­itage, as some non-Kuwaiti direc­tors some­times don’t know many as­pects of this her­itage. The fair in­cludes events, lec­tures and dis­cus­sions in which sev­eral writ­ers, jour­nal­ists from Kuwait and over­seas take part. — KUNA
