Kate Mueth and her Neo-Political Cowgirls broach new territory with their upcoming 2018 summer main stage production about the oft-unknown goddess of female rawness. Baubo shows up to aid Demeter in her weary search for her daughter Persephone and in bringing her laughter through female raunch humor, enlivens Demeter to once again obtain the needed energy to continue on her search. NPC will explore what director Kate Mueth terms "The desperate need our humanity currently holds, that of looking bravely and honestly at women's rawness and welcoming the unique power female comedy offers to reinvigorate our breath and vitality in order to carry on."
In classic NPC style, music and unapologeticly sensual, powerful movement leads the way, but this production holds extra special offerings by way of silk aerialists and color guard backdrops.
August, 2018, BAUBO premieres for six performances outdoors under the stars in the hills of Montauk County Park.
