is composed by theatre groups which are practitioners of the Feminist Theatre of the Oppressed from Latin America, Africa and Europe. It was created as a consequence of the theatre laboratories and international meetings started in Brazil in 2010 with the support of the Centre of Theatre of the Oppressed (Centro do Teatro do Oprimido – CTO). The Ma(g)dalena International Network is a space to revalue and spread the expression of feminist collectives; it is a space of exchange, struggle and encouragement for solidarity and justice. The international seminars offer opportunity for the qualification of the multipliers and updating on methodological development. The international meetings aim to strengthening the network and create concrete conditions for the permanent exchange and articulation among groups. The festivals are at the same time moment for celebration of network’ political and artistic advances and strategic planning for further transnational collaborations.

Nowadays the network is present in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, México, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Italy, Austria, France, Switzerland, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia…
