Transit is an international theatre festival and meeting organised at Odin Teatret, Holstebro (Dk), directed by Julia Varley, one of the founders of The Magdalena Project, a network of women in contemporary theatre that exists since 1986. Transit and The Magdalena Project are committed to nurturing an awareness of women's contribution to theatre and to supporting exploration and research by offering concrete opportunities to as many women as possible, both in the profession and in study. Both structures function internationally to give voice to the concerns of women working in theatre today. 

 

 

Transit and The Magdalena Project encourage women to examine their role in the future of theatre, by presenting existing work by women, by sharing methodologies, by examining form as well as content and by making new material. Transit and The Magdalena Project aim to set up opportunities for women to explore new approaches to theatre making that reflect more profoundly their own experiences and political priorities as women. The ripple effect of Transit Festival usually results in other festivals and meetings, workshops and productions in close contact with the network of The Magdalena Project.
