The Jury’s Statement

Extract

“Rehearsing is like composing together, is how Jossi Wieler describes his work as a director, stressing the importance of people listening to each other. For many years now, Wieler has been regaling us with intelligent and sensitive stagings of theatre and opera: striking compositions of gestures and words, sounds and images that he picks up on by tuning in to his ensemble, yet maintaining respect for each individual and for the theatrical text and work of music. His creations reach out to our lived realities, because here too, attentive listening makes all the difference. The contradictions in his characters are our contradictions: understandable and contemporary despite their historical garb. They are easy to listen to because they have something to say to us, and because they gently entreat us to learn the art of listening to each other.”
