Equal parts community organizer, Elizabethan fool and bedazzled bon vivant, Taylor Mac has created internationally award-winning performance events that at once provoke and embrace his diverse audience. Mac is beloved for his iconic beauty, disarming vulnerability, and soaring spirit. Drawing from his current project, A 24 Decade History of Popular Music, which was developed in part at the Sundance Institute Theatre Lab and includes an epic performance over 24 continuous hours, this show will kick off MLK Week on campus and feature songs from 1946-1976, from the Civil Rights Movement to the Stonewall Riots.
