Taylor Mac's Condensed Opus On Tour
New York City institution Taylor Mac, the daring and innovating drag and performance artist, director, producer, writer and musician, is quite simply a human force of nature. Recipient of the 2017 MacArthur Genius Grant, Mac is touring a condensed version of his Pulitzer Prize-nominated A 24 Decade History Of Popular Music, a 24 hour concert that debuted in his native city in 2016.
The original consisted of a staggering 246 songs spanning 240 years, with each decade taking up an hour. This later reincarnation is just as immersive, charting the same 240 years of American pop culture with an anarchic relish. Mac will cycle through genres and artists from Walt Whitman to David Bowie, exploring what it means to be alive, breathing, American and queer.
