    Book Launch





    15 October 2017 in Holstebro, Denmark

    at Odin Teatret, Særkærparken 144




    The Editorial Board of The Open Page Publications is delighted to invite you to the launch of Future Conditional - Notes for Tomorrow.


    The Open Page has always been driven by the need to encourage theatre women to record their experiences, whether working within the context of a group or alone. The thirteen volumes of The Open Page journals and the two books published previously, have given us more than we anticipated: personal stories, gratitude for significant influences, practice, pedagogy and, frequently, reflections on the perplexing question of how to pass on knowledge and experience from one group or generation of women to another.


    This new book is an attempt to take a step into the future, by asking where we are going and what we will do when we get there. Contemplation of the future turned out to be a difficult theme, and many of the authors expressed this difficulty in their writing. Future Conditional - Notes for Tomorrow is an anthology of essays, poetry and articles by twenty-five women from four continents, all of whom are connected to The Magdalena Project. The common aim, expressed in individual ways, is to articulate the hopes and fears, demands and aspirations for the kind of future that we want to share with each other. The book is illustrated with paintings by Danish artist, Dorthe Kærgaard.
