Vijayawada: AP State Creativity and Culture Commission CEO Dr D Vizai Bhaskar inaugurated two-day training programme for women playwrights at the Cultural Centre of Vijayawada and Amaravati (CCVA) as part of International Women’s Day celebrations here on Saturday.
He said that there was a need of women playwrights to express the problems faced by them in their own words. Padmasri Kolakaluri Inoch, chairman of AP Sahitya Academy, in his keynote address stressed the importance of more women writing plays on women-related issues without any fear.
Gummadi Gopalakrishna, Chairman of AP Nataka Academy, appealed to women to write Padya Natakams, which are unique for Telugu people and give a new lease of life to that genre of plays.
Dr E Siva Nagi Reddy, CEO of CCVA, Potluri Harikrishna, Chairman of AP Creativity and Folklore Academy, playwrights Vadrevu Sundar Rao, Patibandla Ananda Rao, Kandimalla Sambasiva Rao, Krishneswara Rao and MS Chowdary shared their experiences and gave tips on how to craft plays with human appeal.
