The impetus for Taylor Mac's A 24-DECADE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC began in San Francisco, when Mac attended the first AIDS Walk in 1986. “It was there I discovered how communities can be built as a result of being torn apart. Years later I decided to create a work about this dichotomy. And to do it in song," Mac says. "Bringing the entire work to my second home of San Francisco, with so many of our New York company joining us in collaboration with so many local Bay Area artists is especially exciting.”
A 24-DECADE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC will be presented as four six-hour chapters, together making the first complete presentation since Taylor’s historic 24-hour marathon performance in NYC last fall. More info here!
