Contradictions is an ongoing womens workshop/performance group, founded in 1980 as a performance group with Maggie, trumpeter Corine Liensol , pianist Irene Schweizer and dancer Roberta Escamilla Garrison. Maggie then developed it into an open women's workshop and performance group which combines her love of spontaneity and structure, improvised, and written and rehearsed, multi media material.
It looks like there may be another revival of glorious Contradictions. Women are gathering again in west Wales and we'll see what happens.
