The Picture of Dorian Gray
I wish there were other theater artists like Yehezkel Lazarov. He has an adventurous instinct, a different view from the norm and a special attitude to the written word. "The responsibility that Lazarov took into his hands was daunting, but not for him, his vision of how the play should have looked so strong that he embraced with joy almost all the divisions of art: Hedonism, but the loss of sanity, as a director he had faith in putting the complicated concept into practice. The setting consists of white blocks of different sizes that delineate the stage spaces, reveal, blur and deepen the illusion; It was dance and theater work to the same extent .... Lazarov created a stage park full of stimulation. Some of the scenes are complete, others are rich in smart means of expression. I was amazed by talent. The intriguing soundtrack consists of songs by David Bowie, U2, The Cure, Nick Cave, Metallica and more .... Gil Frank as Henry conquers his sly cunning. Aki Avni as Basil presents a clean and honest appearance. Leah Gelfenstein is lovely .... "
"Lazarov, who is also responsible for the design of the set and the movement, created a stylized and stimulating performance that in its form becomes the refined expression of the madness of the senses that takes over Dorian Gray.... His choices completely succeed in arousing an unconventional sensory effect... His great achievement lies in transforming the emotional turmoil at the center of Oscar Wilde's book to a world of hypnotic stage that draws the audience emotionally and consciously, and does not give him rest"
