Hi Magdalenas! I would like to introduce myself: My name is Beatriz, I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela, but I moved to Spain 10 years ago.

Recently, I had the chance to participate at the Magdalena Festival A Solas in Madrid, and the experience got me inspired to go back to Caracas and promote a Magdalena there.

A new feature on this web site is a Bibliography.

This is the beginning of what we hope will become a large and comprehensive collection of books, articles, videos and other publications about or referring to the Magdalena Project, its activities and associated festivals and activities - a very useful resource for anyone researching the Magdalena Project.

Stacy Klein, Founder and Artistic Director of Double Edge Theatre, has received the prestigious 2013 Artist Award from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Klein is among only twenty artists nationwide and the only Massachusetts artist chosen by the foundation to receive the $225,000, multi-year grant. The transformative award is intended to empower, invest in and celebrate artists who have demonstrated “thrilling, vibrant work that affects both audiences and the larger performing arts field.”

the first meeting

The first meeting for the Magdalena Archive Project (M.A.P.) was held at Aberystwyth University over 12-13 September 2013. The aim of the meeting was to begin to plan for the long-term survival and accessibility of the large amount of material that has been generated since the project began in 1986.

A film produced by Jill Greenhalgh and Sara Penrhyn Jones.

Depicting the Magdalena Project in one film seems impossible, considering its historic and geographical spread, and its multilingual and evolving nature. Magdalena is a thirty minute documentary, created as a collaboration between Magdalena Founding Artistic Director, Jill Greenhalgh, and filmmaker Sara Penrhyn Jones.
