Self-critical Stubø wanted to stay at the royal dramatic theatre: Sad that I didn't get to finish

the Renovation is about to start. The theatre bar is just as empty and desolate as the rest of the Dramatenbyggnaden.

ingrid Bergman hand-painted devil dancing on the window glass when the former working buy hämtkaffe in the shop opposite. Two weeks have passed since the royal Dramatic theatre's board of directors decided to allocate to him, a fact which he sincerely regrets.

" I wanted to stay, I was very keen to make clear my appointment. It was 19 months left and the repertoire is largely in place. I can only say that I was disappointed and think it is sad that I didn't get to finish the and complete that which was so near.

the set of Erland Josephsons "A night in the Swedish summer" to Budapest as the first stop in an international gästspelsturné. Right now put the finishing touches to he regin for the game to function even on the foreign scenes. He works as usual, but still not.

When the board of directors on 8 april, the decision had the theatre finally had a new vice president in Maria Groop Russel. New communication and human resource managers will take office in may. A new stability in the theatre's management was within reach, he stresses.

" I'd better devote myself to formulate and pursue artistic activities, which is why it felt frustrating to not be able to go with it. Plus the theatre artistic and public is great.

Why did it then as it went? In Eirik Stubøs own eyes, the situation is much more complex than "moving tv documentary forced out a theater".

was that the vice-president-the chair stood empty for over a year, a period when the turmoil was great because of the cuts, and metoo. The external and internal pressure which is then created of the SVT documentary, where it appeared that the artist Josefin Nilsson beaten by a former boyfriend, was it that ultimately led to the decision of the board, " he says.

" It was a harrowing documentary, it affected me and all of us at the theater because a person in the film was called ex-boyfriend is an actor who has been employed in the theatre, it is clear that it influenced many.

Eirik Stubø said that he regrets that he allowed man to participate in a play that later was cancelled.

In retrospect, I realize that it was a problematic decision. I felbedömde the consequences of letting him play a small role in the theater.

Today's News told the actor Julia Dufvenius about the threats she experienced from one of the theater's employees, and that she had to escort to and from the theatre. How do you see it?

"I have no need to question her experience," he says, but do not want to develop the reasoning.

nor would he answer questions about the theater's handling of the case.

" I have a different picture of the situation. But I can't comment on individual personnel matters, it should not do as a manager and not as a former manager, I think.

another strong contributor to the shortcomings in the work environment was that Eirik Stubø as newly appointed theatre director and ceo in 2015, received the board's mission is to pull down on the theatre's fixed costs to free up money for artistic work. The workforce was reduced by around 20 full-time positions and many felt bad. Management failed to communicate why the cuts were made, notes Stubø, and on this point he is self-critical.

" I think that it could have been handled better and clearer internally, why do we do this? Why is it existential necessary? The change was necessary, but the impression sat in a few of our employees that this was something you did not understand, I believe that it laid the foundation for distrust and discontent which the human is entirely understandable.

When the reorganization was inside in a painful stage theatre implement a long-approved survey, tells Stubø. Two days before the survey would be published in Svenska Dagbladet metoouppropet #tystnadtagning which the theatre decided to expand the with questions about sexual harassment.

I stood on the stage and said, "now it is important that everything come out, to break this tystnadskulturen as people began to talk about, now, everything on the table. Now the lid off".

Förestagshälsovårdens analysis of the survey came a year ago.

Then it emerged with clarity to it for a long time been challenges with the working environment at the royal dramatic theatre, the point was that very much of what came up was a long way back in time. But all came forward in a staggering now, it was a challenge for all.

– You can always do more than what you do, I am self critical on many points, but I felt that we worked as best we could with this.

Now returns Eirik Stubø to its "original mode" as a freelance director. In september he has his first premiere, where, and with what is still a secret.

Whether he will return to the royal dramatic theatre, he does not know.

– it depends on what It is for the job.
