IV Women’s International Theatre
Festival and Meeting

Holstebro, Denmark 15-25 January 2004

Roots are usually imagined sinking into the ground and going backwards in time. Roots in Transit IV would like to propose a different image: active, germinating, sprouting roots that point outwards, forwards and upwards. Many young women search for a technical base and a professional identity among people whose social behaviour and habits are different, and in places where their mother tongue is not spoken. Theatre allows those of us who belong to a community of uprooted individuals to chose the mould where new and different roots will grow. Even women who strongly identify with their culture and ancestors rediscover the wisdom passed on from a living past.
The image of a network is made up of crossing lines and empty spaces. The experience of the women meeting within The Magdalena Project tells us that important information is contained in the spaces opened by the intersecting lines. Roots in Transit will give particular attention to geographical diversity, and to the simultaneous presence of women working in theatre, music and dance. The programme consists of two parts: the first with practical workshops, demonstrations and performances; and the second with vocal and physical training (Cultivating), workshop demonstrations (Sowing), presentations (Origins), videos, lectures, discussions, concerts and performances.
