On the heels of the U.S. women’s soccer team’s world championship win—yeah, we’re still pumped about that—here’s another weekend all about celebrating the goddesses of the world, including a tech installation created by an innovative female engineer and a femme-focused film festival.

Immersive Experience

Greek designer firm Studio INI and engineer Nassia Inglessis study the relationship between body and environment in the new installation Urban Imprint, where people are able to control a physical space through their own movements. Through Monday, September 2; A/D/O, 29 Norman Avenue, Greenpoint

Live Music

Comedic geniuses (Dulcé Sloan, Trevor Noah), presidential candidates (Beto O’Rourke), woke-as-hell speakers (Jameela Jamil, Spike Lee), and a World Cup winner (Megan Rapinoe) all in the same place? Yes, please! And at OZY Fest you can also catch performances by John Legend, Tove Lo, and Miguel. Yeah, so. See you there! Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21; The Great Lawn, Central Park

Theater

Hunky British stage vet Jonathan Cake takes on the masses as Shakespeare’s proud, democracy-despising Roman soldier. A celebrated war hero, Coriolanus could have power in Rome if he’d only pander to the people. When he refuses, tragedy ensues. Daniel Sullivan directs this thorny political drama. Through Sunday, August 11; 8 p.m.; Delacorte Theater, 81 Central Park West
