Neo-Political Cowgirls (NPC) will host the 5th annual Andromeda’s Sisters Arts and Advocacy Gala on Saturday, June 26 at The Leiber Collection Estate in Springs.
“Our fifth annual Andromeda’s Sisters Arts and Advocacy Gala greets an imperative question for our time,” Kate Mueth, Neo-Political Cowgirls Founder, explained. “What are some true challenges to freedom occurring on a day-to-day basis for sections of women in America?”
The evening, which commences at 5:00 p.m., will include refreshments, a special performance and the chance to mingle with attendees in the stunning Leiber Collection garden. This year’s special guests include Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson, Dominicana author Angie Cruz, New Hour Executive Director Serena Liguori, playwright Kathryn Grant, and actors Catherine Curtin and Irene Sofia Luchio.
“Starting with Kathryn Grant’s one act play Order My Steps, starring Cathy Curtin (Homeland, Stranger Things, Orange Is The New Black) and Irene Lucio (Slave Play on B’Way, The Americans), directed by Orange Is The New Black star Laura Gómez, we examine the hard conversation between a mother and her estranged daughter,” Mueth noted. “Then we look at the issue of freedom through the prisms of immigration, reproductive health and incarceration with Alexis McGill Johnson (President, Planned Parenthood), author Angie Cruz and Serena Liguori (Executive Director of Long Island’s New Hour For Women and Children).”
She continued, “This event is a very special gala where arts and advocacy marry, audiences are activated and inspired, and creative and courageous women are amplified. With this event The Neo-Political Cowgirls bring folks together for inspired community and vision- building to address local and global concerns via creative conversation.”
Tickets to the 5th annual Andromeda’s Sisters Arts and Advocacy Gala are $125 and $25 to attend virtually. Proceeds will support NPC, a not-for-profit dance theater company whose mission is “to make theater for and from the perspectives of women and the under-represented in our society.”
