Malta Festival Poznań presents some of the most interesting contemporary cultural phenomena from all over the world and co-produces theatre shows. The programme combines disciplines, media and high and popular culture in 2 main sections: Idiom, in which the Idiom curator, a distinguished artist, chooses a theme and invites established artists and emerging talent to explore it; and Generator Malta, a project which involves urban communities.
Malta Festival Poznań is EFFE Award 2015-2016 winner: ‘The jury considered this to be the most innovative festival in Poland: having begun as a theatre festival, five years ago it began inviting leading artists to curate specific programmes around a particular theme or idea.’
The 2016 edition will be constructed around the relationship between spectator and actor. The curator of 26th edition is Lotte van den Berg, a Dutch artist who combines together theatre, performance and visual arts.
