EDGY REDUX: TRANSITIONS
In 2014 after its 20th edition, the Edgy Women Festival is reborn as Edgy Redux: considerably condensed yet ever fierce and feminist. Co-directed by Miriam Ginestier and Andrea Rideout, this first edition of Edgy Redux will focus on the theme of transition via 3 events: All Nuit Long, Edgy Colloque, and the return of the immensely popular Edgy Challenge. In parallel, activist performance artist Susanna Cook will be teaching a writing workshop.
