O MAMUTE NACIONAL PRODUCTIONS
A co-creation with Lusus Theatre
Baubo is a Greek Goddess who represents the archetype of the Sacred Fool. She is the bawdy, jesting, wild woman whose swinging hips shake up our very world. She dangles her breasts in front of our faces, loosening narrow vision and re-wilding humdrum view. In CABARET BAUBO, we will see her dancing her shameless belly dance, where sexuality is restored as sacred, and where a laugh is much more than discreetly raising one’s cheeks; it is a full belly laugh.
