Cristina Maldonado (MEX)

Cristina Maldonado

Maldonado is a Mexican performer strongly influenced by visual and conceptual art. Her work is characterized by a deep research process that unifies a variety of sources -visual arts, performance, experimental theater, dance, interviews, new and old media and conversation with audience- aiming for a collective experience of introspection that usually starts on specific personal issues.

Egon Luděk Tobiáš (CZ)

Egon Luděk Tobiáš

Graduated in stage design from the Drama Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague; spent one year on a post-graduate course in book illustration and printmaking at the School of Applied Arts. Has written 26 plays of which some have been performed in theatres in Prague and Brno. His debut as a dramatist was in 1992 with the play Vojcev directed by Petr Lébl in the Labyrinth Theatre. Since 2000 he has worked in close cooperation with the director Jan Nebeský who has presented most of his plays (Mal D’or, Tempest 2, JE SuiS, Solingen [merciful blow], etc.). As a stage designer he has worked with Opera Mozart, Dejvice Theatre (his designs for the production of Sister Anxiety won the Radok Award for 1995) and the Theatre on the Balustrades. He draws for comics, paints, and works as a printmaker in the print studio Hamlet. He has worked with the publishers Petrov and Argo and at present is working with the publishers Divadelní ústav and Pražská scéna. In 1995 Český spisovatel published the collection of three of his plays, Wozyef, for which he did the graphic layout. In Tobiáš’s texts we find ourselves in the fictional and fantasising world of play born from language, address and unexpected designation. The playfully changeable identity of individuals unfolds from a dreamlike and absurd logic.
