FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade in association with Manhattan Theatre Source will present the 2018 EstroGenius Festival, the longest running festival celebrating the work of women and gender non-conforming artists in NYC.  Begun in Manhattan Theatre Source in 2000 as a short-play festival, the festival has launched and supported hundreds of artists in its 18 years. 2017 was the festival’s first time in its new home The Kraine Theatre on E. 4th St.

 

Currently at the helm of the festival are Melissa Riker and Maura Nguyen Donohue.  

The Short play series is produced by Vinnie Marano.

In concurrence with the inclusive values the festival was founded on, this executive team focuses on art generated, written, directed, choreographed, composed and performed by artists who expand the definition of a women’s festival.  The producers strive to create a full, empowering, festival dedicated to a community that hears, sees and celebrates women, gender non-conforming and non-binary artists in all of their dynamic diversity.
