Guy Weizman wins price for best direction 2018
For his directing of the interdisciplinary show Salam (Noord Nederlands Toneel + Club Guy & Roni + Asko | Schönbergs K [h] AOS) our artistic director Guy Weizman received the 2018 Regie Prize on Sunday evening, September 16, during the Gala of the Nederlands Theater.
Maybe no world peace, but a big prize for a special and at times bizarre project with a fantastic and passionate cast and crew!
“It is a brilliant discovery to reduce the primal beginnings of two beliefs to a fraternal quarrel. This quarrel is the basis of large, current global quarrels. And now of a dazzling, grand performance that gives the word ‘theater’ all the shine it can have. Director Guy Weizman turns Salam into a tightly directed, unprecedentedly colorful chaos, where all means of telling a story in the theater have been used. Choreography, play and music merge smoothly, with even the changements being part of the staging. “- Toneeljury 2018
