Abhay Dramatics Club, generally known as ADC, has traversed a long way from being a venture of 3 friends to now one of the biggest and most sought-after club of IIT(ISM) Dhanbad. Founded in a room of Diamond Hostel, it will complete a decade of dedication in the next year. It is considered more than just a club and a legacy that has blossomed with time. Slowly, but surely, it has been making a name for itself on a nationwide level just like our newly christened college.
Abhay Dramatics Club is known for the discipline and drive that is poured in each of its production. One only has to be a part of the audience to fathom the extent of efforts.
The club has performed in various Theatrical Festivals all over the country along with four annual productions in the college, held mostly at the Golden Jubilee Lecture Theatre. The performances include not only different genres of contemporary drama but also street plays and mimes.
It has a distinction of being the only Engineering college performing in the ‘All India Multi-lingual Theatrical Festival’ and bagging first and first runner-up prizes in English and Hindi languages respectively. The club had performed at the Spring Fest (IITKGP), Antaragini(IITK), Alcheringa(IITG), the InterIIT Cultural Meet with positions among the top three and continues to actively participate in the upcoming events.
Apart from this, members have made several short films on various issues of the institution, like ragging which have had more than five million views on YouTube. Also, few of the alumni have ventured to form an independent youtube channel called Filmiyapa Broductions.
ADC as a club has been an active member of the ISM society. It has always been up for promoting cultural events and has also collaborated with other clubs, such as Manthan and Professional Drama Societies like the Asmita Theatre Group.
The members are not only actors, but ever aspiring writers, leaders, managers and, of course, dreamers. They’ve been the founding members and backbones of several major clubs and societies.
It wouldn’t be erroneous to say that Abhay Dramatics Club is one of the most active clubs in IIT(ISM) and the members are more than pleased to introduce themselves as ADCians.
