The first International Festival of Women in Experimental Theatre, the Magdalena Project, took place in Cardiff in 1986. Fifteen countries were represented by 30 women. This illustrated volume documents the unique event and offers insight into the origins and organization of the workshop, probes into the problems of authority and power relations within the group, records individual training sessions and presents short profiles of each performer. The author explores some of the theoretical issues relating to women's theatre and the state of experimental theatre, which emerged from the festival.
