In march of this year, Sven and his bosom friends, Brik Van Dyck and Marc Point a own theater company. And with success. For their first performance, ‘The Cream Glace War’, but less than 10,000 paying visitors to watch. “A private production company set up was a serious risk, but if you nice numbers to see, is that a compliment. We have a good basis to build on. Therefore, we have a plan figured out.”

“We want to be recognizable and approachable sense of humour here. Without the platvloers or that we people begin to schofferen. And there's our latest production, ‘Squatters under the christmas tree’, a good example of this.

And in Squatters under the christmas tree’, with Herman Verbruggen, Mieke Laureys and Nicoline Hummel, that is definitely the case.”
