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.
The Waitingroom Project from Cluj Napoca (Romania) was celebrated its 10th birthday in 2020. Maladype will also join the celebration with the presentation of the FISHEZ performance in Budapest on June 13rd at TRIP - Ship Theatre on the Danube river- within the framework of the Crossroads program.
FISHEZ is an attempt at community creation, co-thinking and experimentation. We tried to work against the hierarchical theatrical structure, not to implement the idea of a single person, but to participate in rehearsals as equal creators, each representing their own speciality. The rehearsals of the show which has built on well-defined musical structures, began by separating the various mediums (movement, text, voice, tempo, etc.) and creating new relationships between them. The show addresses the theme of the body-time-memory triad in a relative world, based on associations.
