NAPA’S Base­ment Playhouse

Slogan - - EVENTS -

The Na­tional Acad­emy of Per­form­ing Arts (NAPA) has set up a Base­ment Playhouse es­pe­cially de­signed for in­ti­mate per­for­mances. The in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony was held on 29th Jan­uary 2017 and was well at­tended by many no­ta­bles such as Javed Jab­bar, Ar­shad Mah­mood and many oth­ers. At the Base­ment Playhouse, the au­di­ence min­gles with the per­form­ers quite ca­su­ally.

On the oc­ca­sion, Zia Mo­hyed­din pre­sented read­ings of po­etry and prose in a style that he calls “Parhant.” He em­pha­sized the need for learn­ing the in­to­na­tion as well as cor­rect pro­nun­ci­a­tion to mas­ter the art of read­ing. Later, the au­di­ence got a treat when Us­tad Nafees played the sitar ac­com­pa­nied by Bashir Khan on tabla.
