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.

About Kosztolányi Dezső Theatre – Urbán András Company:
Makes you think, confronted, amazed, revved, makes you curious and hooked on. Since 1994 this is the Kosztolányi Dezső Theatre. Throughout the years, the theatre has evolved into an experimental, so called, artistic theatre, which is categorized by the unique workflow and aesthetics of András Urbán’s productions. The crew has five permanent Actors.The plays are performed in Hungarian, with Serbian subtitles since 2007. In the recent years the troop has been guest at various theatre festivals in Europe, Asia, South-America. The theatre travelled to India in 2011, and to Brasil in 2012. The institution is constantly present at the most important theatre festivals in Hungary and Serbia, and at other theatre events in the region. The theatre places a special emphasis on contemporary workshops, and organically links the local and the global reality. The Kosztolányi Dezső Theatre has proven that experimental performances can also enter the mainstream, and in an artistic sense, the theatre has gained a significant position in the region. In the name of diversity the Kosztolányi Dezső Theatre has launched the Tram of Desiré in 2006. This is a unique, year-long series of events that has the goal to present the Vojvodinian audience artists that are revolutionary, exciting and top-class in their own genre of theatrical play. Since 2009, the theatre can take pride in its own festival, the Desiré Central Station. This contemporary, international and regional festival of drama and dance has become an important moment in the cultural life of the region.
