Taylor Mac: "A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (Abridged)"

Sat, Nov 03
Back by popular demand, the luminous Taylor Mac returns to Salt Lake decked and bedazzled in gloriously irreverent regalia for a night that is “startlingly unique…a must-see for anyone who wants to see a kinder, gentler society” (Huffington Post). The abridged version of Taylor’s transformative “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music” is a captivating, community-building experience that reflects our nation’s diverse and sometimes dysfunctional story in order to reinvigorate a distinctively American sense of possibility. Told from the perspective of groups whose stories are often “forgot, dismissed, or buried,” the show highlights various musical styles and artistic voices ranging from murder ballads to disco, Walt Whitman to David Bowie and beyond.
