Kate Mueth and her theatrical dance troupe, The Neo-Political Cowgirls, performed a sneak preview of their upcoming production, "EVE," at the North Haven home of Michael Daly, a producer for the show, in mid-July. Guests enjoyed an evening of Prosecco and strawberries against the backdrop of a nature preserve as the late afternoon sun set in the private garden, a perfect stage for showcasing excerpts of the story of EVE, a groundbreaking, immersive and edgy interpretation about the creation of a woman.

Eve marks the fourth production for the Neo-Political Cowgirls, whose past performances have included: "Trojan Women Redux," "Wody Girtch Mama," and "Zima," an interactive winter allegorical scavenger hunt which was offered on the streets of Sag Harbor last February.

Mueth describes the Cowgirls' performances as a smash up of acting, dance and music, which allows the improvisations of her performers to shine within the format. Mueth's productions are designed for audience members to feel involved as well, breaking down conventional walls that traditionally separate the audience from the actors, and inviting its viewers to expect the unexpected.

In "EVE," Mueth explores themes of primal humanity, innocent discovery, sex, deep wanting, chaos, wealth feeding into self-obsession and terrible loss, which leads to new found strength.

The theatrical production (for mature audiences) premieres on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, and runs through Sunday, August 26 at 8pm each night. There will be a VIP closing night party on Sunday, August 26 at 6:30pm before the last performance. All performances will be at LTV Studios, 75 Industrial Road, Wainscott, NY.
