about Amos Mokadi

עמוס מוקדי הסערה

עמוס מוקדי סאפו

The Tempest  by William Shakespeare
A Hebrew adaptation for three performers, 2006
A translation of the complete play, 2013

“Mokadi manages to produce a polished pearl – a masterly translation that combines minute and accurate loyalty to
the poetry, alliteration, meter and pace as well as to the multi-levelness of the original. Together with theatrical awareness, flow and intimate closeness to the ear of the Israeli theatre-goer, he weaves into the text hidden and subtle references to our political, social and cultural reality. Then he goes a step further: he shortens the text and constructs a show lasting some seventy-five minutes..."

Professor Gad Kaynar, Head of Drama, Tel Aviv University, November 2006

lunchtime theatre,"
