Taylor Mac's Holiday Sauce... Pandemic!
Join the most subversive event of the yuletide season! Holiday Sauce… Pandemic! blends music, film, burlesque, and random acts of fabulousness to reframe the songs you love and the holidays you hate.
2020 Ibsen Award winner and MacArthur Fellow Taylor Mac (who uses “judy” as a gender pronoun) joins longtime collaborators — designer Machine Dazzle, music director Matt Ray, and producers Pomegranate Arts — to create a virtual experience celebrating the holidays in all of their dysfunction. There is more to the holidays than rampant capitalism and gift giving, and in Taylor’s world, creativity and imagination are their own spirituality. Judy’s cathartic spell ultimately reminds us of the collective power of our chosen families — a message that rings true in such a bittersweet holiday season. This dazzling, and at times shocking, takedown of the sentimentality of the holidays celebrates and rails against Christmas as calamity.
This presentation is recommended for ages 16+.
