We recently sat down with UtahPresents Executive Director, Brooke Horejsi, to learn more about the January 14th performance of Taylor Mac at Kingsbury Hall.
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,” 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.
Taylor Mac and A 24 Decade History of Popular Music have been a huge critical success this year, evoking some strong responses from audiences and media alike. Mac was named to the Out 100 2016, calling the performance, “the greatest theatrical feat ever.” Wesley Morris, critic-at-large for the New York Times hailed it as one “one of the great experiences of my life. I’ve slept on it an I’m sure.”
Brooke tells us audiences should, “expect to be inspired about how to be better and do better and work harder and love more. Expect to fall in love with Taylor Mac, and his message, and his work, and his beauty and his vulnerability, and his compassion.”
