International Festival Gathering: 25th anniversary of The Magdalena Project!
Since 1986, hundreds of Magdalena festivals, gatherings and events have happened across the world - made possible through the fortitude of some extraordinary women artists defiantly determined to give an equality of voice to women’s performance.
Legacy & Challenge honoured all these women, their theatre and their knowledge, and brought many of them together in Cardiff - the Project’s birthplace. We proceeded with the festival despite the difficult financial realities in the UK; so many insisted that we mark this milestone and CELEBRATE all that has been achieved.
Legacy and Challenge was organised and produced by The Magdalena Project Wales Board: Gilly Adams, Vanya Constant, Jill Greenhalgh, Frances Medley, Jill Piercy, Steve Robins and Siân Thomas; and by Web Queen Helen Varley Jamieson.
