Kouiret was born at Algiers. He was a theater and cinema comedian. He had a difficult childhood. His father was a taxi driver, coming frequently drunk at home and was violent with his mother. On day, the little Sid Ali Kouiret, overwrought, gave a knife stab in the back of his father and was obliged to live on the streets at very young age. At 17, he was a procurer in the port of Algiers and had no connection with art. But he loved sport, especially swimming. And to do that, he had to cross “La Rue de la Marine” street. One day, he met there (at “Le Café de Daniel”) Mustapha Kateb who directed in the fifties an amateur theatrical troupe. Since then, he started his adventure on the stages.
In 1951, he went to Berlin with “El Mesrah El Djazairi” theatrical troupe. And in 1952, they were in Paris; singing patriotic texts in Algerian coffees. In 1953, he went to Bucharest for 4th World Festival of Youth and Students for peace. And later the same year, he became a professional actor and engaged in the municipal troupe of Algiers, led by Mahieddine Bachtarzi. But in 1955, and because of the harassment and the persecution of the DST (French domestic intelligence agency), and for his safety, he was obliged to go away. So he went to Marseille, then to Paris where he met Mohamed Boudia, Hadj Omar, Missoum, and Noureddine Bouhired…
In 1958, he was a member of the theatrical troupe affiliated to the FLN (National Liberation Front) that was trying to make Algeria famous worldwide and to promote the Algerian struggle for freedom.
After the independence of Algeria, he was among the elements that will constitute the Algerian National Theatre. And in 1963 was the beginning of a brilliant cinematographic career. His first apparition in a film was on a TV adaptation of the play “Les Enfants de la Casbah” by Mustapha Badie (1963). But his real consecration was in “L’Opium et le Bâton” (1970) directed by Ahmed Rachedi. Then came “Décembre”(1971) and many other Algerian and foreign films like “Le Retour de L’Enfant Prodigue”, directed by Youssef Chahine in 1976; and “Destins Sanglants” directed by Kheiri Bichara in 1980…
He died on the 5th April 2015 in Algiers.
