a virtual vaudeville
Saturday December 12th.
8 PM (Norwegian time, GMT+2).
Christmas as calamity—2020 Ibsen Award winner Taylor Mac and his long time collaborators, designer Machine Dazzle, Music Director Matt Ray and producers Pomegranate Arts join together to celebrate the holidays in all of their dysfunction. Holiday Sauce… Pandemic! will blend music, film, burlesque and random acts of fabulousness to reframe the songs you love and the holidays you hate. There is more to the holidays than rampant capitalism and gift giving and in Taylor’s world, creativity and imagination are their own spirituality. This holiday season will be bittersweet for so many— Taylor Mac reminds us of the collective power of our chosen families, a message that will be of particular resonance this year when so many have lost so much.
“Mac casts a cathartic spell...for all those who find caroling, eggnog and enforced family visits destabilizing.” (Los Angeles Times)
Produced by Pomegranate Arts and Nature’s Darlings in collaboration The International Ibsen Award, The Norwegian Ministry of Culture and The National Theatre of Oslo.
