Moroccan actress Fatwa Kadouri won the Best Actress Award for her second role in the Moroccan play “Six by Six”, while Jordanian artist Iyad al-Reima won the award for Best Drama Decoration for the play “Women’s Song Revolution”.
The jury withdrew the award for Best Combined Drama Performance, the Award for Best Drama Director, and the Award for Best Musical Composition, due to weakness in the criteria for those awards. The chairman of the jury, writer Muflih al-Adwan, stressed that theater is the art of life and the art of direct, active and interactive reception with the audience, as not all media sing for this live reception.
The team praised all the participating groups, their association with the theater and their interaction with the group during corona epidemics, which has made many things difficult for stage and performers in the past.
He noted the absence of a director in most of the theatrical performances during the festival, adding that more attention was needed to restore the director’s major role in the creative theatrical work.
Al-Adwan said the committee should include the decoration and lighting awards for the visual award from the festival management and the festival’s top committee, or cancel the visual award and distribute its vocabulary so that each person is assigned a prize, not just the cancellation of the award for best optical illusions.
He stressed that the committee appreciates the beautiful character and presence of the two plays shown outside the competition: the Palestinian play “Sharshuh” Ihab Zahida, and the director of the Syrian play “Summer Night in a Forgotten City” Osama al-Hafiri, due to their aesthetic values and theatrical distinction for them. One shield was awarded Creative Excellence, where both plays were awarded the Best Shield from the ceremony.
At the end of the closing ceremony of the festival, it was presented by a representative of the Minister of Culture, Writer and Novelist Hassa Al-Barari, and was attended by the Director of Sarka Culture Wasfi Al-Tawil and a group of artists who provided the music and song link of the band Al-Ruwad, which was appreciated and appreciated by the audience.
