after a long preparation time and many interesting conversations with (inter-)national artists we proudly present the first International Women-Theatre-Festival in Frankfurt am Main. We hope for new impulses for the theatre scene and in our city and we're looking forward to you! Let us celebrate this time together!
In four weeks, protagon e.V. is hosting the first International Women-Theatre- Festival in Frankfurt, with support of the women´s department from Frankfurt and artists from the antagon- ensemble. The event is part of the worldwide network “The Magdalena Project“, which is organising meetings for 30 years to women who are interested in theatre.
We invite you warmly to participate in a workshop (only for women) or/and forum and to see performances and theatre plays (for everybody). The entrance is free!
What does it mean to stand by your own strength while there circulates the brand of the “weaker sex“? How do women and girls experience their feminine self-image within a multicultural world through performing arts? And how do we place this image inside a wide political field? The upcoming Women-Theatre-Festival in Frankfurt offers possible answers. The international exchange between women in theatre creates a space, in which they can present their work and point of view. At the same time, we address women without a theatre background to share their experiences and participate in an innovative processes. The festival stimulates and creates new perspectives for a creative platform and event, that is planned to take place annually in Frankfurt am Main in the future.
Women from Brazil, Denmark, Mexico and many other countries will present their artistic work and offer workshops. From Friday (10.11) till Sunday (12.11.) there´ll take place an official forum. Interested individuals are warmly welcome. The participation in forums and performances is free of cost! (Tickets as long as stocks last)
