Australia’s state theatre companies condemn sexual harassment
In the wake of allegations of sexual harassment and abuse in the global entertainment industry, the Confederation of Australian State Theatres (CAST) has released a joint statement from its members condemning sexual harassment and abuse.
The members of CAST are: Bell Shakespeare, Belvoir, Black Swan State Theatre Company, Circus Oz, Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne Theatre Company, State Theatre Company South Australia and Sydney Theatre Company.
CAST’s announcement follows in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein case and subsequent revelations around the behaviour of other high-profile men in the entertainment industry including at Ireland’s Gate Theatre and London’s Old Vic and Royal Court Theatres.
The statement reads:
“In response to incidents and allegations in the broader entertainment industry both here and overseas, we stand together to say that sexual harassment and abuse in any form is unacceptable.
“We offer our unwavering support to the courageous people that have already come forward, and to any victims who have not yet had their stories heard – we are here for you.
“CAST companies are committed to providing safe theatres and workplaces that are free from harassment and abuse. We are focused on continually improving physical and emotional safety. We feel it is our responsibility to remove the stigma that can be felt by victims, and to encourage them with confidence to initiate formal complaint proceedings, and to seek appropriate counselling services and support.
“CAST companies are committed to ensuring that our theatres and spaces are safe for everyone. The wellbeing of those who work for us is of utmost importance.”
