Dastangoi is a lost art form of storytelling in Urdu. At its zenith, these stories entertained audiences with tales of war, magic, deception, adventure etc. The performers, Dastangos, were mimics, narrators, actors who use to recreate and mould stories spontaneously while performing.
Mahmood Farooqui, an actor and a writer based in Delhi, revived Dastangoi under the guidance of the leading scholar of the Dastanic tradition, S. R. Faruqi. He collaborates with Danish Husain in his venture of reviving Dastangoi, as an art form.
To celebrate Sarai’s ten years, Mahmood Farooqui and Danish Husain will give a Dastangoi performance on 9th February 2010 at 6:00 in the evening.
If you are in town, please come and join us in our celebrations.
