TAYLOR MAC: A 24-DECADE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC | CHAPTER IV (1956-PRESENT)

 

A 24-DECADE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC is Taylor Mac’s multi-year effort to chart a subjective history of the United States through is a unique mash-up of music, history, performance, and art that were popular throughout the country, and in its disparate communities, from 1776 to the present day.The concert will be presented as four six-hour chapters, together making the first complete presentation since Taylor’s historic 24-hour marathon performance at Brooklyn’s St. Ann’s Warehouse last fall. Tickets can be purchased as single chapters, or audience members can purchase a four performance series - the pièce de résistance in it’s entirety, an experience that The New York Times’ Wesley Morris called “one of the great experiences of my life.”1956-the present: Bayard Rustin’s March on Washington leads to a queer riot, sexual deviance as revolution, radical lesbians, and a community building itself while under siege.
