“A 24-Decade History of Popular Music” is Taylor Mac’s subjective history of America since its founding in 1776. Originally performed as a one-time 24-hour event, this abridged version is a highly immersive and outrageously entertaining crash course in the 240 years (and counting) of the history of American culture and dysfunction. 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.

Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies

Co-sponsored by Arts Transcending Borders, by the Department of Theatre and Dance and the W. Arthur Garrity Sr. Professorship in Human Nature, Ethics and Society; and by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
