We are women* of all colours and ages as well as different preferences and values. Despite all diversity, we have one thing in common: the decision to fully occupying our female body, to re-create it and to question the social structures that have been forced upon it. A body that needs to be more empowered, loved and respected, free to move and discover the power to express itself as a political space.

About us

Artists Wanted!

The International Women‘s* Theatre Festival in Frankfurt encourages women* to share their role in the theatre of the future. Once again this year we invite female* artists to contribute to our program with their artistic work. Theatre makers and performers will perform on 4 days, give workshops and discuss in exchange with the audience and with other invited scientific, socially active and otherwise engaged women* and discuss together to experience.

For 2019, we have set the theme „Collective Empowerment“ . In the process, we approach the challenge of how to change the dynamics of power relations. The main goal is to strengthen feminist* initiatives in the performing arts: among other things, the establishment of a sustainable, international theatre project dedicated to the visibility of women* in theatre and performative art in the long term.
