Female Peace Palace

Theatre and Resistance in Times of War

Festival from 31.3. - 23.4.2023

Münchner Kammerspiele & Monacensia im Hildebrandhaus

Female Peace Palace

The “Female Peace Palace festival is dedicated to the courage, vision and struggles of women in war and resistance. Comprising theatre and discussions, it draws a line from a visionary historic event during the First World War, which was largely organised from Munich – the first “Women’s Peace Congress” held in 1915 in The Hague – to current conflict zones. Placing their faith in art and theatre, the invited artists will search for ways to describe the dilemmas and hell of war, while at the same time dedicating themselves to finding the strength from which the future can grow. Together with guests from countries including Ukraine, Iran, Syria and Belarus, the “Female Peace Palace opens up a space for understanding about freedom, resistance and contradictions in the transnational spirit of The Hague in 1915. The festival is an invitation to start conversations and to dream at a time when, faced by hatred and war, we may lack the words and imagination.
