" last year.
Salem said, in his interview with «Emirates Today»: «(Bin Tartoush) does not resemble any comic or dramatic character that I have previously presented, whether on stage or on TV, as it is unique not only because it is so timidly stingy, but because it is capable of The fabrication of quarrelsome and quarrelsome problems for the simplest reasons, unlike (Salboukh), who was looking for justifications for her actions, and moved from one place to another the company of the working family, mostly in the field of folklore.

Since we are preparing for the next 50 years of the UAE’s life today, I believe that the responsibility now lies with the managers of Emirati TV channels, who are currently holding the decision of local dramatic production, to advance the state of Emirati drama and invite its creators to rise again, and provide a realistic picture of our diverse local community » .
Salem also continued: “As we have been able, during the past 50 years, to benefit from the expertise and Arab cadres in art and media, we can today complete our honorable artistic career with all Emirati capabilities and talents and Arab and foreign experiences, capable of enriching the artistic and dramatic scene of our beloved homeland.”

He also continued: “As I value as a creator and artist in another context, the important step taken by the Ministry of Education in the field of integrating theater material into a basic subject, and attracting it to nearly 700 specialists in theater science and technology from Tunisia, Jordan, Morocco, Egypt and other Arab countries, along with festivals and activities Today, the UAE is making great strides in the field of artistic renaissance, and a project to establish an informed and educated theater audience.
On the responsibility of art to provide social messages and meaningful content, Emirati artist Saeed Salem revealed his decision not to follow Turkish series, out of his lack of conviction in its level and dramatic contents that lack meaning and logic, adding: “Turkish series is a red line for me and the people of my home, but I nevertheless I cannot prevent everyone from following it, especially through the available digital means, which have also become a partner in exporting this kind of exotic business, which does not resemble our local and Arab environment in any way. ”
The Emirati drama presented dozens of purposeful works, such as: “Hayer Tayer,” which frankly posed several problems.
