Alexander Hausvater was born in Bucharest, and emigrated in 1959, together with his parents, to Israel. He studied in Tel Aviv and Dublin and produced highly acclaimed shows on numerous national and international stages.
He spent part of his life in Canada, where he managed several theatres.
He directed over 150 performances, from Israel to the U.S.A., Canada and Eastern Europe. Among these, we mention: "And They Put Handcuffs on the Flowers", "Molière" by Bulgakov, "Medea", "Antigone", "As You Like It", "King Lear", "Hamlet", "Richard III" by Shakespeare, "Uncle Vanya" by Chekhov, "The Chairs" by Ionesco.
He made stage adaptations for Dostoyevsky's "Crime and punishment" and "The Decameron". He is also the author of the play "Solzhenitsyn".
In Hausvater's vision, the script is a pretext or a guiding line, forming a principle applied both to classical texts, as well as to contemporary ones.
In addition to his vast stage management activity, Hausvater also lectured at acting faculties in Montreal, Michigan, Tel Aviv, Moscow and Ottawa.
