2013 List of Events

2013 List of Events & Co-Producers

A funny thing happened as we were planning Estro in 2013…

We set out to make this year’s festival smaller and more intimate and figured the way to do that was to partner with some of our favorite people & production companies. Estro has always been about building relationships and we really wanted that to be the focus in 2013.

So we reached out to our Estro alums and asked them to come play in the Estro sandbox. And they came in droves. In fact, our co-producing model turned out to be so successful that we accidentally, somehow, we’re-still-not-sure-exactly-what-happened, MADE THE FESTIVAL BIGGER. Oops.

We had short plays, full-lengths (!), readings, dance, one-woman shows, visual art, Girl Be Heard, film screenings, a very special Spontaneous Combustion and 2 full days of networking, panel discussions and workshops – 45 events in all!

(In fact, we were too big to fit in a single venue and so had events at both Theaterlab & Stage Left Studio.)
