The Moroccan actor of Algerian origin, Abdallah Shisha, is one of the most prominent artistic figures whose name has emerged in the Moroccan theater.
Abdullah Shisha revealed, in a chat with Hespress, that his absence from cinematic works and TV series is not optional, but rather he is not called upon, so he chose to specialize and work in the theater, because it is a profession in which he lives and earns the sustenance of his children.
The same actor added that theatrical work is considered the engine and dynamo of the actor, his school and his workshop to keep him alive on the mental and physical level as well as the diagnosis, indicating that he participates in a large number of plays, and this requires him to exert great effort physically, psychologically and intellectually.
Shisha also highlighted in his speech to Hespress that he was happy that the play in which he participated, titled “Ghaitha”, was recently crowned with the Grand Prize in the twenty-second session of the National Theater Festival, explaining that “this theatrical piece was crowned according to the controls of a committee consisting of qualified and very high-level people. She gave during the show at the level of directing, characterization, scenography and lighting, which constituted an addition to her and made her grab the Grand Prize,” he said.--
And about the many criticisms that affected the culmination of the play, the Moroccan actor said, “This is a must, and it always happens in Arab festivals, regardless of the level of work,” adding that “Moroccan theater is developing and is ranked first in the Arab world, and it includes very beautiful experiences.”-
And the playwright himself stated: “The actress Hanan Al-Khalidi snatched the award for the best female diagnosis for the play, and this does not mean that we should not win another award, such as the best male diagnosis, which I could have won equally with another actor, because the performance was at the level, and the directing too. For Idris Al-Rukh, it was very high, but the final decision remains for the committees, and each committee is free in what it gives.
And the same speaker went on: “If we had not won the grand prize, we would not have protested, because we are artists and we must be at the level of art, not fighting like ‘ultras’ because we lost the match.”
