Legacy & Challenge - celebrating 25 years of The Magdalena Project, 16-21 August, Wales
THE MAGDALENA PROJECT – 25 YEARS
International Festival Gathering
Wales: August 16th – 21st 2011
In August THE MAGDALENA PROJECT – INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF WOMEN IN CONTEMPORARY THEATRE will be 25 years old. Over those years hundreds of festivals, gatherings and events have happened across the world made possible through the fortitude of some extraordinary women artists defiantly determined to give an equality of voice to women’s performance.
The DESIRE is to honour all these women, their theatre and their knowledge and bring them together in Cardiff - the Project’s birthplace.
Despite the current funding and financial realities in the UK we have decided to PROCEED. So many have insisted that we mark this milestone and CELEBRATE all that has been achieved.
We have a great venue thanks to the generosity of Chapter Arts Centre, the home of the very first festival in 1986, and we will do our best to be excellent hosts.
The FESTIVAL TICKET at £240.00 includes access to all workshops, performances, debates and special events throughout the six days plus two meals a day in the festival restaurant. These festival ticket places are limited so please please apply early to avoid disappointment.
This gathering is our chance to evaluate the LEGACY of the Magdalena and to identify future CHALLENGES. It is a moment to experiment and propose new strategies for thinking, making, organising, and most importantly CONTINUING … the Festival offers:
* Performances, Work Demonstrations, Works in Progress; Debates
* Each day a different programme of workshops to choose from
* Streaming of selected events and online activities for those who cannot attend
* The Open Page publishes a new collaborative book on the history of the Magdalena
* We launch a newly designed website
* We are establishing a home for the Project’ s Archive at CPR - the Centre of Performance Research
