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.


BHUDOO - Touchstone Theatre, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, US

Touchstone Theatre’s Bhudoo (pronounced BOO-doo), a musical fable from a far-away land that tells the story of three wizards vying for the title of Royal Grand Vizier, and for the audience's favor at the annual Bhudoo Games. Who will emerge victorious? Can the game truly be won? Will they learn to peacefully coexist or battle to the end?
A note on the content: While live performances are by their very nature subject to change, audiences should take special note that no two performances of Bhudoo will be exactly alike, and choices that are made will have consequences...

Bhudoo” is an audacious theater piece that transports you to an alternative world a lot differant than our own.
Or is it?
“Bhudoo” is a metaphor for the world we live in. It’s an idealized creation of the world as it is, as it has been and as it could be. “Maybe the magic is real” is the play’s byword.
Touchstone’s wide world of ‘Bhudoo’, Paul Willistein, 2016. 04. 15.

The play is performed in English language; a synopsis of the scenes in Hungarian language is provided to assist understanding.
