Sunday Kind of Love Poet News: Patricia Spears Jones
In 1994 Mabou Mines commissioned a play entitled Mother from Spears Jones that premiered at La MaMa E.T.C. Now, 12 years later, the poet and performance troupe are collaborating again. Mabou Mines has developed a new ensemble piece featuring five poems from major New York poets representing each of the five boroughs. The performance, Song for New York: What Women Do While Men Sit Knitting, expected to premiere this summer, will feature Spears Jones as one of the five participating poets. Once again Spears Jones’ poetry will make its journey from the New York page to the New York stage.
