The Maladype Theatre launched its “Crossroads” project in 2011. The program’s main goal is to present artistic directions, theatres and workshops that represent new trends in cultural life, enhance new artistic initiatives, help in establishing new ways of contacts with the audience and foster ties among different countries. That way the European independent theatres are given the possibility to cooperate and establish a network that helps them in creating new meeting points for dialogue and interaction.

The Maladype Theatre has benefited a lot from its international ties: by establishing them it has the possibility to get acquainted with various theatrical troupes, traditions and institutions. We consider our important task also to present new trends, and young talents to our spectators. We invite theatres and performances that can adapt easily themselves to our location and technical conditions.


Elżbieta Chowaniec


d.: Zoltán Balázs
The characters of Elżbieta Chowaniecz's play are anonymous women, whom the author designates only with numbers. Gardenia is a partial family history: the drama of four generations of Polish women - the oldest was born in 1920, her daughter in 1942, her daughter in 1962, and the youngest in 1982. As they go through almost the entire history of the twentieth century in peace and war, wealth and poverty, their complicated and simple relationships between mother and daughter, grandmother and granddaughter, great-grandmother and great-granddaughter are also revealed.
Based on the poems of Iris Eliya Cohen

The contemporary Israeli work Maternity deals with the fate of children who have disappeared and are still in unknown places and the mothers who search for them. After the establishment of the State of Israel and later in the 1950s, thousands of babies disappeared from newly immigrated families placed in refugee camps. Two-thirds of the parents of the missing children immigrated to Israel from Yemen. The performance "Maternity" presents the long-term ordeal of the parents of kidnapped children, as well as the connections between their tragedy and the fate of today's women and mothers. "Phenomenal and striking performances shape this documentary theater into a deep artistic experience." (Rutie Stern, Haokets, Israeli magazine)

WHISTLE - My Mother was Mengele's Secretary

d.: Hanna Vazana-Greenwald

"As a child I was never hugged or kissed, I think my parents did not even see me. I wrote this story to stop being an invisible child” (Yaakov Buchan)

Tami, the only child of Auschwitz survivors, discovers at the age of 45 that she has not yet ever really lived. This startling revelation comes to her through a stranger, who suddenly enters her life and opens up locked doors to her soul. Tami feels that this is her 'last chance'... but is she capable of loving as she dreams? Who should she ask for permission from? Can she even believe she deserves love?

“Unfortunately, there’s nothing more we can do. The diagnosis is cerebral palsy; she’ll walk until she can’t walk anymore. And then – a wheelchair”. This prophecy is the starting point of my story. Behind the scenes of the theatre, between performing mandatory physiotherapy exercises, my struggles of coping with cerebral palsy will be exposed. This is an account of battles – against my body, against an environment of hostile glances, against the men in my life; and then there’s the dream to be exactly as I am, walk the way I know how to, stand on my own two feet, be an actress and, more than anything else, have no one telling me that “this is not how you walk on stage”. The show won the Tarin Shalfi Audience Favorite Award and an honorable mention at Theatronetto Festival.

ELEVATOR - boys will be boys

c: Ferenc Fehér

The elevator is a narrow space where people get on and off, going up and down without getting in touch with each other. The elevator is always on the move. But if suddenly it gets stuck on the way, anything can happen.
Elevator explores the possibilities of a small, tight space and creates a dynamic and intense atmosphere for the three performers.
