Cogito Youth Performing Arts Festival (CYPAF) that was postponed due volatile situation in city in the aftermath of the killing of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Imran Farooq, will kick off from October 1 and will run for 3 days.
“The aim of the event is to unite not-for-profit youth organisations like AIESEC, Uraan, Jaag and Rahnuma on a singular platform and all the money generated from the show will go to Madadgar and the flood victims,” said Shahzad Ghayas, a member of the organising team.
The first day of CYPAF will include Cogito’s original performance called “Tamasha-e Zeest” (Theater of Life), written and directed by Ahmad Khan from National College of Arts (NCA). The story is about our very own society and shows different traits of human nature of distinct characters in our society.
The second night of the show will be a repeat show of the same drama followed by an open mic session.
The play will be followed by stand up comedy act. As part of the open mic night, performers and the audience will be given an open stage to showcase there talents.
The third day of the show will have concerts and underground bands from different institutes of Karachi such as Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Indus Valley School (IVS) and Institute of Business Management (IoBM) will perform live music.
Ghayas further added that the cancellation of the show had cost organisers a lot of money as people who came from Lahore to perform will be coming back again, which doubled the traveling cost.
“Fortunately, the Arts Council cooperated with us and we did not have to book the venue twice to get new dates. We just hope that there are no further mishaps,” he said.
