A documentary feature film about Taylor Mac’s Award-Winning 24-Decade History of Popular Music, a 24-hour durational work charting American history through songs popular from 1776-2016. The film will feature performance, intercut with verité and scripted sequences that lend context and humor and sass to the themes and ideas in Taylor’s groundbreaking work. Taylor’s sly, subjective history will be explored and visualized, providing a chorus of commentary on the wildly entertaining performances presented in the film. Rare and select archival footage may be used as well to help illustrate Taylor’s uniquely brilliant vision. The film will extend the boundaries of the performance space so that we can contextualize Taylor’s performance as part of the American Experience.
