Thank you to this week's sponsor: Funkadelic Studios
Funkadelic Studios runs on a simple philosophy: the musicians are the priority. Funkadelic Studios has provided musicians an affordable home to rehearse, record, and reinvent their music for over 20 years. Two musician friends in Brooklyn started the studio as a way to connect with the NYC music scene and provide a place where musicians can do what they do best – make music. No matter how rich, poor, established, or underground an artist might be, Funkadelic provides all the services musicians need under one roof. The six Rs are essential for any artist and Funkadelic has them all covered: rehearsal rooms, recording studio, repair shop, rentals, retail shop, and a rock & roll club.

A Encore Performances of BLURRED LINES

Sunday May 21 & Monday May 22

Blurred Lines draws attention to how we navigate and survive in a world where 1 in 5 college women are sexually assaulted, and challenges audiences to reflect on the roles we all play in a culture that promotes silence and blurs the lines of consent. Girl Be Heard is excited to bring their 2017 MainStage show Blurred Lines to the EstroGenius Festival. This show is reflection on and deconstruction of rape culture. Devised by eight performers over three months Blurred Lines originally premiered at HERE in February 2017.

SUNDAY May 21, 12:30-4pm Girl Be Heard will be running a workshop to devise new pieces to be worked into the show and evening performance. This exploration will not only be through watching but also playing.


About the Festival

Manhattan Theatre Source’s EstroGenius Festival, an annual celebration of female voices, is one of New York City’s largest women’s arts festivals.

Founded by Fiona Jones in 2000, the festival debuted with a program of 10 short plays and music. Since then, it has grown into a multi-week event including short plays, solo shows, teen performances, visual art, and dance. In past years, we’ve also had stand-up comedy, live music, fundraisers for African girls’ education, and full-day networking events with panels and workshops.

Almost completely volunteer run, the EstroGenius Festival has provided thousands of artists the chance to shine; showcased award-winning playwrights Sheila Callaghan, Quiara Alegria Hudes, T.D. Mitchell and Melissa Maxwell; presented Bessie Award-winning choreographers Marta Renzi and Jennifer Nugent; and provided scholarships for girls to attend school in Niger, ranked the poorest country in the world by the United Nations.

We are committed to providing opportunities to female artists – in a variety of disciplines – ranging from the emerging to the seasoned professional.

The New York Times raves that EstroGenius
“lives up to its billing as a celebration of women’s work”

nysca_100pxManhattan Theatre Source & EstroGenius would like to thank New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature for their support.
