We are happy to welcome you all to the International Womxn Theater Festival in Frankfurt am Main!
This year, our festival celebrates its 5th anniversary and we will realize an empowering space for womxn in the Performing Arts in Hessen for another year in a row.
The IWTF is part of the Magdalena Project, a dynamic intercultural network that crosses borders and generations. It is an international
platform for the stage work of womxn, a forum for critical discussions and a source of support, inspiration and joint further education
in the Performing Arts.
Based on this year‘s topic, „Womxn Performing Selves“, we therefore invite womxn artists and groups to meet in presence from September 13th-19th. To this end, I have curated a program that provides us with a space for our voices and our artistic productions in the current situation in which womxns‘ rights are being threatened again around the world.
The IWTF 2021 invites us to uncover buried historical knowledge and the power hidden within it in our bodies. Bringing it out into the open as a ritual is part of this year‘s performances, through which witches, womxn magicians, and other repressed antecedents of today‘s feminists will be speaking.
As theater makers, we are visionary people. We can create new realities and other worlds with our art. Now, womxn are the protagonists of this revolutionary process, here we are writing a new
history – in our lives and in art!
