A site-specific work was performed from a barge moored in the East River with audiences seated on the pier at Gantry State Park in Long Island City. Five female poets wrote the piece, composed of five poems – one poem representing each of the five boroughs that make up New York City.

Song For New York, was developed in part, by the Sundance Institute Theatre Program and at residencies with New York Theatre Workshop (at Vassar College). A “Sing Through” version of Song For New York was presented at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on 6/4/07 as part of Sundance Institute at BAM.

…nothing I have observed can compare for ingenuity with the new site-specific piece of the experimental Mabou Mines Company.

Faz In Ate was developed through the Mabou Mines suite residency program in 2000. It was then co-produced by Deadalus Theater Company and was performed at the CSV/Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center.

Synopsis:
Polly dreams herself and Ollie out of despair by creating an imaginary world (Faz In Ate) inhabited by Mr. Zing, who speaks the invented language of Zing – talk. As Polly’s two worlds collide chaos ensues.

It is an uncommon pleasure to see such creativity matched with consummate professionalism on all levels in a production, which arrives on a wing and a prayer. Faz In Ate is a funny, moving and exceptionally enjoyable piece of theater. Clamor at the doors.

Emilita and the Faery Glen was first broadcast at Symphony Space on Broadway at WNYC and was  originally commissioned and then co-produced by Deadalus Theater Company in New York. (NY, 2001).

Synopsis:
Emilita is pregnant with the unborn wild child (the eternal dreamer) by the King of Mist, who in turn has banished her from the Faery Glen. In order to give birth she must return, or there will be no more dreaming in the universe ever… to aid her in this struggle she summons the Soldiers of the Sea. Thus the battle begins…

The beautiful faery tale Emilita and the Faery Glen is part theatrical poem, part theater, influenced by the beat poets and harkening further back to a whimsical Irish tradition.
