hi Baubo,

Hannah De Meyer

"I associate Baubo with creative, erotic darkness. With blood, Earth and the Moon. She is a figure who connects female sexuality with ecology, psychedelia and resounding laughter.”
– Hannah De Meyer 
 
In 2018, Hannah De Meyer wrote and performed the hypnotizing new skin. In that production, she fuses the growing indignation of a new generation of young people about our wrecked world with a highly personal ‘awakening’: new skin as a door to a new awareness, with alternative stories about what success, prosperity and a thriving society are.

For the 2019-2020 season, Hannah De Meyer follows the lead of Baubo, an obscure mythological figure associated with regeneration, magic and female sexuality. Baubo has turned up in rock drawings, bone figurines and stories since prehistoric times: female figures with accentuated vaginas and spread legs, usually in the company of fish, turtles and birds. In Greek mythology, Baubo appears as the wet nurse of Dionysus and the handmaiden of Demeter.

For hi baubo, Hannah De Meyer wrote a new script that she is staging along with several performers in a production that weaves together language and movement in a unique manner. You can get a sneak preview during the Love at first Sight festival in September 2019 on the day that De Meyer is curating.
