A 24-Decade History of Popular Music


Sep 15 – Oct 8, 2016 (St. Ann’s Warehouse, New York)

By Taylor Mac
Directed by Taylor Mac & Niegel Smith

Taylor Mac’s glittering performance art concerts chart a (highly) subjective history of popular music and activism in America from the nation’s founding in 1776 to the present day. Created with a bevy of collaborators, including music director / arranger Matt Ray, co-director Niegel Smith, 2015 MacArthur Fellow Mimi Lien, lighting designer John Torres, and longtime fellow traveler and costume provocateur Machine Dazzle, this highly anticipated World Premiere will be the first time Taylor Mac performs the complete 24-decade history in its entirety.

“Taylor Mac’s 24-Hour Concert Was One of the Great Experiences of My Life. I’ve slept on it, and I’m sure. “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music” is sublime.”

– Wesley Morris, The New York Times
