The Magdalena Effect
Circa Theatre is proud to curate and host WTF! Women’s Theatre Festival, celebrating women’s voices and following on from 2016’s hugely successful Women in Theatre Hui. A second conference will be hosted at Whitireia on 11 March 2017 (to coincide with International Women’s Day 8 March) – Women In Theatre Hui – The Next Stage.
This month long event will run from 25 Feb – 26 March and showcases Caryl Churchill’s Escaped Alone, Hens’ Teeth and Miss Jean Batten. Circa will present a smorgasbord of performances, play readings, monologues, talks, forums and workshops that will celebrate the achievement of women and promote theatrical equality in Aotearoa.
Founding members of Magdalena Aotearoa Madeline McNamara and Lisa Maule present a series of images, both moving and still, to tell a story of their and other New Zealand women theatre practitioners long association with the Magdalena Project.
BATS is also presenting Writes for Women – a short series of play readings from leading New Zealand women playwrights – Fix by Jess Sayer, Esther by Angie Farrow and Rēwena by Whiti Hereaka 14 – 16 March 6.30pm.
