Neo-Political Cowgirls, under the direction of Kate Mueth, is bringing their acclaimed interactive, theatrical production "EVE" to The Gym at Judson.
EVE is a music-art-dance theater immersive performance about a "perfect woman" newly created by the mad "Maker" in a world already rife with experiences and history. Set loose with a companion, "Man," the audience moves freely through multiple rooms, watching her story unfold through music, movement and art -- minus the fourth wall –bringing us more intimately into the various personal moments of Eve's experiences. Called "unapologetically sensual" and "brilliantly stunning," EVE is a moving human tale filled with stunning visuals, physical artistry, humor and joyful resurrection.

Your voice matters, and Girl Be Heard has a spot with your name on it. 2 Opportunities: Our Sunday Workshops & Our Mainstage Show
Our Sunday Workshops
Girl Be Heard is seeking performers, songwriters, dancers, writers and activists to join our Sunday Workshops - young women ages 12 through 21 ONLY. Fluency or ability in foreign languages is a plus.
Workshops are every Sunday from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm and will have public performances in December 2015 and May 2016.
Our Mainstage Show: Embodi(ED)
Girl Be Heard is seeking 5 writer/actors and 5 writer/dancers/movers for our 2015-2016 mainstage show Embodi(ED) to debut at HERE Arts Center, February 8 - February 21, 2016. Embodi(ED) is a documentary theatre and dance piece addressing the issue of eating disorders and the $55 billion dollar diet industry. Based on interviews with people of all ages and all genders conducted by Girl Be Heard ensemble members, Embodi(ED) demands media accountability in how images of "beauty" are used against women, fueling a culture of body and food obsession that feeds into eating disorders and a dangerous economic investment in maintaining a culture of hatred for women's bodies.
Young women of all backgrounds, abilities, gender expressions, ethnicities, races, sexual orientations, religions, and nationalities are strongly encouraged to audition.
