More specifically to be included as actor in one of its future productions, “The mystic lamb”. The reputable theatre group wrote in the ad “Do you fight for your convictions? For God? Did you fight for IS, for other religions?" and left its contact email.

A spokesperson from NTGent explained to the press that “We do not seek to recruit active fighters. But if we can include such a story in our production, we do not exclude this possibility."
