FRIGID New York’s mission is to provide both emerging and established artists the opportunity to create and produce original work and to amplify their diverse voices. We do this by presenting an array of monthly programming, mainstage productions, an artist residency, and eight annual theater festivals that create an environment of collaboration, resourcefulness, and innovation. Founded in 1998 as Horse Trade, the aim was and is to form a structure, allowing multiple artists to focus on creating and staging new work and providing production support and affordable rental space to scores of Independent artists. Now in our 25th season, we have produced a massive quantity of stimulating downtown theater.

I think the biggest takeaway from 2020 is that the people in charge don’t always know what they’re doing. And the ways that people have evolved to do things are not always the right ways. So if you have an idea to start something, do it. By all means, do your research. But new ways of doing things are important, old ways of doing things are always evolving. Everybody that tells you that they know how to do something – they don’t necessarily know. So look around, pay attention, figure out where you can do it better. – Erez Ziv

FRIGID produces multiple festivals throughout New York City during the year. They host the annual FRIGID festival, an uncensored indie festival in which the artists keep 100% of their box office earnings.  FRIGID offers two performance space venues, The Kraine Theater and Under St. Marks (please check the websites for all specifics.)
