The third annual Gathering will be held 9-14 April 2009. This
five-day event featuring work-in-progress presentations, workshops,
discussions and exchange was first held in 2007
(read more) and
again in 2008 (read more).
In 1999 we held the Magdalena Aotearoa
International Festival of Women's Performance - a huge 10-day
festival of performances, workshops and meetings attended by
women from around the world. We hope to hold another such festival
in the near future.
From time to time the Trust has produced other events such as the
Making Waves workshop series and other workshops
and meetings around specific topics; see the archive
for information about past workshops and meetings.
Magdalena Aotearoa organises visits to New Zealand by women theatre
practitioners from around the world; see the archive
for information about past visits.
Members of the Magdalena Aotearoa network regularly participate
in international theatre festivals and conferences, including Transit
V at Odin Teatret, Denmark, 8-18 January 2007, and Magdalena Singapore,
July 2006. See the archive for
information about participation at international festivals.
The Magdalena Aotearoa Trust operates on a small project-by-project
budget and is run by volunteers; we do NOT give grants.
The newsletter is funded
through subscriptions, projects are funded by specific project applications,
and we have a Patroness Scheme: we are
very grateful to those individuals whose donations support our activities
The Projects Handbook
The Projects Handbook is a resource for women starting out in theatre,
and also for those who've been at it for a while but would welcome
some handy tips. It's been gleaned from the collective experience
of various Magdalenas over many years and through many productions
and enterprises. To order your copy: send a cheque for $10 (this
includes GST, postage and packaging) along with your name and postal
address to: Magdalena Aotearoa Trust, P.O. Box 27-300, Wellington.
Issue 32 of the Magdalena Aotearoa newsletter
is out now.
Recharge: the Gathering 2009
will take place 9-14 April at the Newtown Community & Cultural
Centre in Wellington.
