Matteo Sedda (actor) Statement
In September 2018 Jan Fabre and Troubleyn were accused of inappropriate behavior by a number of former performers and employees of the theater company through an open letter in the Belgian media. I was deeply struck by this. I never experienced Jan as a bully, a sexist, a racist or someone who deliberately humbled people. We started an internal discussion about what is and what is not possible, what limits we have to set and how we can jointly ensure a working environment where everyone can feel safe and respected. We jointly chose for a new future of the company, because we believe in each other and in our artistic work. That’s why I decided to keep on performing for Troubleyn. I hope I’ll get the respect from the audience to bring my performance in serene circumstances.
