Padatik Nattya Sangsad (Padatik theatre group) is a Dhaka based Bangladeshi Bengali theatre group.[1] To sustain the spirit of the Bangladesh Liberation War, the group was formed in 1978.[2][3]

History[edit]

Padatik Nattya Sangsad was founded on 21 January 1978 by some former theatre workers of Kalantar Natyagosthi. The primary aim of this group was to uplift spirit, enrich culture and to sustain the spirit of the Bangladesh Liberation War (1971). The first drama to be staged by this group was Jasimuddin's Sojan Bandiyar Ghat. In 1980 they formed another branch of this theatre group in Narayanganj, Bangladesh.[4][5]
