Magdalena (Singapore) 2006

Magdalena (Singapore) took place from 9-15 July 2006, with the theme "Crossroads".

The intermingling of different performance practice and cultures in the twenty-first century have resulted in the increasing potential, relevance and necessity of dialogue between practitioners of different disciplines and cultures, as well as between practitioners and audience. Singapore, long viewed as a multicultural society situating itself at a geographical, social and cultural crossroads between the East and West, was an ideal and relevant location to host a festival where this phenomenon could be investigated and negotiated.
