My artistic name is Jan Matar. I am Kurdish from Syria. I am currently studying Social Work and doing an internship at ZID Theater as a production assistant. Fortunately, I ended up at project FATE. I didn’t choose that by chance, of course. In Turkey where I lived for three years, I worked as an actor in a few theater institutions. In the Netherlands where I live since 2016, I have focused more on making short films and music clips. At FATE I enjoy every rehearsal and get energy from the creativity that the participants have. I can support the production at FATE as a social worker, make beautiful films of the rehearsals as a filmmaker and participate as an actor and future projects, perhaps. That’s why it’s no coincidence that I chose to work for FATE.
