Seventh Annual Festival Celebrating Women's Creativity

The Seventh Annual Estrogenius Festival is a premier showcase for the diversity of women's and girl's artistic voices. Featuring theatre, dance, solo shows, visual art and performances by teens, the four-week Estrogenius Festival shines a spotlight on women's creativity.

The Seventh Annual Estrogenius Festival is anchored by four weekly programs of short plays, including new work by Fiona Jones, Lucy Boyle, Kara Corthron and George Hunka. Special events are held each Saturday during the festival. Due to popular demand, GirlPower has been expanded this year. The program, produced by Atonia Pettiford, will give teen girls a showcase to shine on Saturday, September 23 and Saturday, October 7. Sola Voce Estrogenia, produced by Cheryl King, will offer two outstanding programs of solo shows Saturday, September 30 and Saturday, October 14. GirlPower and Sola Voce Estrogenia will take place at Manhattan Theatre Source (177 MacDougal Street). Women In Motion: Estrogenius Dance presents an eclectic dance program, including two Bessie Award winners, Saturday, October 14 at a new, larger venue, Morocco Studios (6 West 20th Street, 2nd Floor).
