Anarya, Onnoshawr


Anarya, Onnoshawar was a performance-poetry ensemble formed on 5 February 2000 in Chittagong, Bangladesh. The name means "Non-Aryans, an atypical sound". The media was predominantly audio, with occasional visual aids.


The group was a full member of 'Bangladesh Abritti Shamonnoy Parishad' ( Governing body of performance-poetry and recitation organizations of Bangladesh). The group also used to run a three-month-long workshop on 'Experimental performance-poetry'.

The group disbanded on 2010 after celebrating its 10th year of experimental works following a recitation festival on Chittagong.
