Il volume è stato curato da Giulia Palladini, giovane studiosa abruzzese, ricercatrice presso l’Università di Erfurt (Germania), che da diversi anni lavora sulla storia e la teoria del teatro con particolare attenzione a un’ottica di genere. Oltre alle testimonianze delle artiste presenti al “Magfest” del 2009 (Julia Varley dell’Odin Teatret, Ermanna Montanari del Teatro delle Albe, Helen Chadwick della Royal Shakespeare Company, Ana Woolf del Magdalena Argentina) nella pubblicazione trovano spazio i contributi di importanti studiose di teatro come Valentina Valentini (Università “La Sapienza” Roma), Laura Mariani (Dams Bologna), Carlotta Pedrazzoli (Circuito Teatrale del Piemonte), Francesca Romana Rietti (Odin Teatret Archives).
Il volume coinvolge anche studiose esterne alla rete Magdalena, al fine di offrire un quadro complesso ed eterogeneo della scena teatrale femminile italiana e fornire spunti di riflessione sulla pratica teatrale anche oltre una prospettiva di genere. Il Magdalena Italia vuole infatti dialogare con il contesto teatrale italiano ponendosi come luogo di condivisione aperto ad attrici/attori, performer e studiose/i che abbiano il desiderio di confrontare idee e pratiche artistiche con una cura particolare al “processo creativo”.In linea con gli scopi della pubblicazione, le presentazioni saranno anche delle occasioni per far conoscere il “Magfest” e per aprirsi al confronto con artisti e intellettuali della scena italiana.

Written by Chris Fry, The Way of Magdalena chronicles the main activities of the first decade or so of The Magdalena Project. Starting with the explosion onto the theatre scene in 1986 of the international women’s theatre festival Magdalena ’86, the book traces the various lines of development that rippled out from that cathartic event. It examines the work of the founder and Artistic Director, Jill Greenhalgh, and follows how her vision interacted with and inspired more and more women to develop their own work and visions. It explores many of the events that took place within this period, including those which became the first of a series of events, such as the Transit Festivals in Denmark, and the Festivals Voix de Femmes in Belgium. The book also delves behind the scenes to examine the management structures that evolved as The Magdalena Project grew and took on a life of its own. Often using first hand experience and interviews as well as original documentation, the book attempts to recreate and present the ways of thinking that were prevalent at the time. It also brings an objectivity that proffers a useful perspective to readers wishing to find out more about the early years of this still growing international network.
