Adult theatre for children
and children’s theatre for adults

We are working towards a theatre for all audiences. We hope to reach that destination, which is a place for all -old and young-, safe and sound. Given the systematic insistence on choosing between theatre for adults and theatre for children, we started to make adult plays for young people and children’s plays for adults. We never wanted to make children’s theatre for children.

It isn’t easy, there is lots of pressure.

But hopefully we will get there.

DRAMATIST AND DIRECTOR OF MDJ

The theatre, like any other artistic formula, proposes a way of sharing knowledge through emotion. That is what it is all about.

ACTOR AND FOUNDER OF MDJ

“For Marie de Jongh what is important is telling things that enrich us, and telling them in the best way possible. Things that concern us, that ask questions of us, that make us feel alive and accompanied, understood, needed, responsible.”

Pio Ortiz de Pinedo

PRODUCTION MANAGER AT MDJ

“We are surgeons of the immaterial, and we operate, scalpel in hand, on vital organs like our intelligence, emotion, knowledge, respect… It is up to us to improve our audiences, or leave dead bodies in the seats.”
