"The Hearing" by Renana Raz
In 2014 a drama shook the Israeli public when Adam Warta – a teacher of Jewish Thought in an Israeli high school – was called for a dismissal hearing after one of his students, Sapir Sabah, wrote a letter of complaint to the Ministry of Education, accusing Warta of expressing extreme leftist opinions against the state. In The Hearing, the audience is presented a new perspective on the proceedings, as four actors recite statements in different voices and versions. This distilled act of listening disassociates the words from their immediate contexts, and illuminates their complex layers of meaning.
