The International Womyn‘s Theatre Festival (IWTF) 2020 is planned as a festival for an interested audience and at the same time as a forum for womyn in theatre. Of course, this year with a global pandemic has brought us additional challenges in our work and our lives as womyn and artists. And yet, dear fellow feminists and readers, the time has come: The 4th International Womyn‘s Theatre Festival is taking place! We have not given up on putting this program on its feet and have even expanded it by live streaming, which will reach those of us who unfortunately cannot be physically present this year. We want to inspire and encourage and therefore call upon you not to give up the feminist debate even in the current situation, but to shape it artistically and go through it.
This is why womyn theatre makers and performers will also be present on the premises of protagon e.V. for 4 days this year, presenting their work and positions, discussing and leading workshops and exchanging ideas with the audience, invited active womyn from science, art and culture – and with you!
The 4th IWTF focuses on the topic „Collective Empowerment across Borders“ and creates our common space: a space for mutual encouragement, to discover geopolitical, gender-socialized and age-related boundaries within us and to go beyond them – artistically researching and creatively implementing what is moving (within) us.
You are all welcome to join!
