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.


Intercultural Festival of Master Classes

Between June 10 and 19, 2013, the Intercultural Festival Laboratory of Theatre Practices was organized in the picturesque town of Fara Sabina near Rome by Teatro Potlach in cooperation with Eugenio Barba's I.S.T.A. (International School of Theatre Anthropology). Zoltán Balázs and three Maladype actors arrived at the Fara Babina residence upon the invitation of Pino Di Buduo, the head of Teatro Potlach. At the festival showcasing various theater workshops and creative methods, Zoltán Balázs led a workshop about the technique of “the games of chance” method, employing the exercises in Maladype’s Egg(s)Hell.

During the workshops of the more than one-week long summer open university, countless artists and university students worked together with international artists representing traditional and contemporary theater arts. Master classes and workshops were held by such renowned artist and performers as the Japanese actress Keiin Yoshimura, the Argentine master of clown arts Hernán Gené, and the Indian singer-dancer Parvathy Baul, whose workshop was attended by Maladype actors Zoltán Lendváczky, Ákos Orosz, and Erika Tankó as well.
