From 2016 to 2018, the International Women‘s* Theatre Festival (IFTF) – Magdalena Frankfurt has set the stage where theatre, culture and femininity can continue to be strengthened and accepted. Since 2018, the IFTF creates spaces to take up this cultural diversity and political interest in Frankfurt and Rhein-Main, and to use it for stronger dialogues and perceptions.
The goal of this international encounter is to discuss current topics on a artistic level. It will serve as both a festival for an interested audience as well as a symposium of experts on the topic of “Women in the theatre”. Artists and performers from these areas will perform for 4 days, give workshops and share experiences with the audience and other socially active women*. The workshops are dedicated to women as a shelter and are financed by a participation fee. Admission to all other events of the IFTF is free.
We are inviting female artists to contribute to The International Women’s Theater Festival by performing, giving workshops and sharing experiences with other socially active and engaged Women*. For 4 days we will approach the challenge of how to change the dynamics of power relations through the year’s theme „Collective Empowerment“. The main goal is to establish a sustainable international theatre project dedicated to the long-term visibility of Women* in theatre and performance art.
We are part of the network The Magdalena Project.
