Kuwait, May 11: Vitorino Pereira, one of the exponents of the Konkani Khell-tiatr in Goa, will be the chief guest at the 5th Konkani One-act play competition organized by the United Club of Utorda.

The competition will be held at 3-30 pm on Friday May 12, 2006 in the Hawalli A/C Auditorium.

Vitorino Pereira is the son of the famous Konkani playwright the late Santiago Pereira. Vitorino commenced his professional career in the late sixties and was instrumental in introducing budding talents and making them stars of the Konkani stage.

Vitorino has written many tiatrs with themes of social and cultural significance and he has carved a niche on Konkani stage. Vitorino's presence in Kuwait during the Konkani One-ac play contest will be a boon to the rising stars of Konkani stage in Kuwait.

United Club of Utorda (UCU) is a cultural organization formed in Kuwait in 2001 with the aims and objectives to explore and encourage hidden talents of budding Konkani artistes, singers, lyricists, playwrights and directors.

Having been motivated by excellent response from the Konkani-speaking fraternity in Kuwait, UCU presented its first Konkani One-act Play Competition in Kuwait in February 2002. This contest served as a springboard for experimentation to present One -act Plays with varied thematic significance.

The One-act Play Competition soon became an annual feature from 2002 to 2005. During these years the Konkani-loving audience lauded the efforts of UCU in organizing such pioneering contests in the interest and for the benefit of young talents in their respective areas of artistic value.

Following are the plays to be presented at the competition:

"Nivar Amkam" - Felix de Merces
"Mhojim Panch Bottam" - Salu de Betalbatim
"Bharat" - Joe Ferreira (Assolna)
"Ho Pordes" - Ignatius de Xelvon

Theatre enthusiasts in Kuwait are requested to be on time to witness Kuwait's budding artistes in action, on stage, for entertainment. It is just one of the efforts of the United Club of Utorda-Kuwait's efforts to promote the very best and talented Konkani stage artistes, say the organizers.
