IWTA, Episode 38: Kate Mueth, Part I

Interview with the Artist

Release Date: 03/12/2015

Kate Mueth is an actress, director, choreographer and producer. In 2008, she founded Neo-Political Cowgirls, a women’s dance theatre company committed to making exciting and provocative theatrical work for and about women. In the fall of 2015, her show EVE will be opening both Off-Broadway and in Berlin. She is also founder of the Mulford Repertory Theatre Company, a summer Equity company in East Hampton, NY.  Kate's directing credits include: Wody Girtch Mama, Trojan Women Redux, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), Sylvia, All in the Timing, Miss Electricity and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife among many others; and she's worked with everyone from Blythe Danner to Tony Walton to Tovah Feldshuh to Peter Boyle. She has appeared at Lincoln Center with New York City Opera in the world premiere of Monodramas and continues to work in creating exceptional, contemporary dance, theater and film work based in the Hamptons and NYC.

In the first of our two-part conversation, Kate talks about how her formative years shaped her as a storyteller, why finding your voice has the power to heal, what is means to feel fulfilled and supported as an artist, and how- on and off stage- she defiantly breaks down walls by letting her imagination lead the way, and creating work for women that honors the feminine within us all. It gets deep. So get comfortable, press play and hang onto your f***ing hat/pants.
