a network of women in contemporary theatre, with Julia Varley.

Julia Varley will recount the most significant episodes in the history of the Magdalena Project, founded in 1986 by Jill Greenhalgh in Wales and then spread all over the world with hundreds of initiatives. The need to write their own story as women working in theatre led to the creation of video documentaries and the publication of magazines and books, whose themes range from the work of the actress and the director, to the need to take a position and intervene to bring alternative structures in the communities to which we belong. In particular, Julia Varley will refer to the experience of the Transit Festival, which takes place every three years at Odin Teatret in Holstebro, Denmark.
