The 2019 EstroGenius Festival, the longest running festival celebrating the work of women and gender non-conforming artists in NYC, returns for a thirs year at The Kraine Theatre of E. 4th St. 

Begun in Manhattan Theatre Source in 2000 as a short-play festival, the festival has launched and supported hundreds of artists in its 19 years and continues through the generous support of FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade.

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

Guest curators include John C. Robinson and Women in Motion’s 2019/20 Commissioned artists: Rebecca Stenn, Same as Sister, Katy Pyle
The Short play series is produced and curated by Vincent Marano with a panel of readers.

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.

2018 includes evenings of multiple makers in our new SPILL Series, events outside of the theatre on the streets of NYC and at our exciting festival partners: Downtown Arts!

Experience full evenings of SHORT PLAYS and MUSIC
