Mabou Mines SONG FOR NEW YORK: WHAT WOMEN DO WHILE MEN SIT KNITTING is a celebration of and for the city of New York conceived and directed by Mabou Mines co-artistic director Ruth Maleczech. Maleczech has envisioned an interplay of choral speech, dance, music and visual art at waterfront locations where the audience onshore looks to the performance staged on a barge. Poems about each of the five boroughs have been commissioned from five New York City writers (Migdalia Cruz, Maggie Dubris, Patricia Spears Jones, Kane Kandel and Imelda O’Reilly) and adapted by composer Lisa Gutkin into songs. Between songs, a Greek chorus of men recites “the yarns” written by historian Nancy Groce.
