Magdalenes’ project

5 women narrate their story. Stories inspired by the women’s shelters know as “Magdalenes’ laundries ” where women were imprisoned for exemplification. A society that considered their sexuality as a sin, accused them of being unethical. Female sexuality is consider as delinquent when it goes beyond what society allows. Not just in Ireland back then, but in every society today. The performance is the result of a weekly workshop devised theater based on raw materials, historical documents, personal stories and it is a work in progress.
