Who Says 13 Isn’t Lucky?
EstroGenius, the month-long celebration of female voices,
celebrates its 13th year with fresh faces and a new home
The New York Times raved that EstroGenius “lives up to its billing as a celebration of women’s work”
Manhattan Theatre Source presents EstroGenius, a multi-week event including short plays, solo shows, music, visual art, dance, teen performances, and stand-up comedy. The entirely volunteer-run festival is created by a team of committed producers, great scripts, inspired directors, talented actors, magical designers, competent stage managers, and passionate supporters.
What debuted in 2000 as a two-week festival with a program of ten short plays and music has grown into the largest festival of its kind in New York City. The festival’s mission is to support the development of new works and emerging artists in a variety of disciplines. EstroGenius accepts short play submissions from across the country and around the world, from male and female, gay, straight, transgender, white, black, Latino and Asian artists ranging in age from twelve to eighty years old.
The EstroGenius Festival – November 8th to December 1st, 2012
12 short-plays presented in three unique programs kick off the festival on November 8th.
The women of Sola Voce, a series of solo performances, take the stage from November 9th to November 26th.
Women in Motion (WiM) presents two premieres on November 14th and 17th: Permission to Fail by 2013 NYLA Studio Series Artist Laurie Berg, with collaborator Bessie McDonough-Thayer and I Would by 2012 Field Fund awardee, Rachel Cohen. Selected by WiM producers, Melissa Riker, Amber Sloan, Esther Palmer and Anne Zuerner for their unique interests in rhythm, theatricality, props, and absurdity, these refreshing dance artists have shown they are not afraid to tackle the unknown.
Stand-up for Estro is back for its second season featuring performances by Marga Gomez on November 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th, and 30th.
GirlPower, a presentation of the spoken word written and performed by girls ages 8 to 21, runs November 10th, 11th, 15th, 16th, and 26th.
