Following his work with Ballet Horizons, Wiseman joined the Staatstheater in Darmstadt Germany in 1973, where he was Ballet Master for the Tanztheater and Opera Ballet.
It was during this time that the Wiseman Technique was conceptualized. He developed and tested it there with international dancers, one of whom, Evan Jones, went on to teach this technique in his native Brisbane Australia.

In Germany, Wiseman met Evan Jones, a professional dancer from Australia, who was performing as a soloist in Darmstadt at the Opera House. Jones became a partner, student and model of Wiseman. Jones returned to Darmstadt, where he resided for several years as Ballet Master. Jones is currently lecturing and teaching in the dance faculty of Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane Australia, Creative Industries Faculty. The portrait of Evan Jones (right) was painted in Vancouver, in 1979.

In1973 in Germany, Wiseman completed a self portrait (left). This painting was inspired by the work of Albrecht Durer. He also produced a coloured ink painting of this Russian church (above), in Hessen Darmstadt with its domes catching the wintery sunlight - a favourite place to relax.
