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.
On Saturday, October 26 at 7 pm, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz's drama The Mother is presented to Maladype’s audience at its Mikszáth Square base by one of the most exciting theater workshops, the Warsaw-based Teatr Baza. During the post-show discussion, the creative team of Teatr Baza will talk about one of the most original artists of 20th-century Polish theater, the genius and eccentric Witkacy (who was born 130 years ago this year).
The play is performed in its original Polish language; a synopsis of the scenes in Hungarian language is provided to assist understanding.
