GIK InstituteThree days full fun

Swabi: The 12th All Pakistan Performing Arts Festival concluded at the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology on Sunday, giving audience a rare chance to cheer and enjoy a festival full of fun and frolic.

The entire Agha Hasan Abedi Auditorium of the GIK Institute was jam-packed on the last day of the performing arts festival.

The three-day festival was organised by Cultural, Dramatics and Entertainment Society (CDES) of the GIK Institute. Students from all over the country and members of Pakistan National Council of Arts (PNCA) participated in the festival.

The official media partner for the event was City FM 89 and renowned comedian Sohail Ahmad was the chief guest at the concluding ceremony.

The event brought a lot of entrainment to the fun lovers who enjoyed the most refined acting skills of the students representing different institutes/universities.

However, the outstanding performance was of the GIK comedians, which sent the whole auditorium in a burst of laughter.

The organisers said the event was aimed to encourage the young artists to display their best work and show their talent.

The art lovers appreciated the efforts of CDES for reviving the true essence of drama with quality humorous plays. The participating groups staged their plays relating to cultures of different Pakistani regions and social issues but it were the comedy plays which pleased the audience the most.

The exciting stories of the plays were based on some heart-touching stories of human behaviour, social attitudes and issues faced by families in a community were relevant to the society in terms of entertainment, education and positive aspects of living. The most vital part of the festival was it integrated with the academic activities of the students. "Such events enhance skills and develop personality and greatest achievement was that it helped discover many artists," said CDES coordinator Yasir Afridi. "It also developed a teamwork habit and raised the concentration level of the participants."

The classical dance performed by Adnan Jahangir charmed the audience. With great display he elegantly carried the audience with him through different classical demonstrations. The most attractive plays were: Oh My Proposals, Mental Tunnels, Level 99, Nritya and Abhinaya, Tuta Hua Tara (Mime), Fifteen Minutes Hamlet By Tom Stoppard, Faulty Towers, Hadbandi, Sufism: The Sources of Peace and Pass Ker Ya Bardhast Ker.

The story of Hadbandi was an epic tale about the love of a couple who were separated by the boundaries of time while Fifteen Minutes Hamlet was the parody of the famous Shakespearian play, Hamlet. "The plays were presented to point out the social issues with entertainment and education and were amalgamated in satire," said Sohail Ahmad. "It was an opportunity for the youth to explore the concepts and styles of traditional and contemporary stage artists.
