“[Mac is] by turns (and sometimes all at once) filthy, hilarious, heartfelt, sentimental, raw, and genuinely moving…attacking it all with smarts, style, and a stark-raving fabulousness” – Next Magazine
PS122’s first-ever recipient of the Ethyl Eichelberger Award for artistic excellence, Taylor Mac teams up with puppeteer Basil Twist, choreographer Julie Atlas Muz and a slew of New York’s most outrageously gifted performers in this aquatic musical bonanza grappling with Coney Island’s revitalization. Classic Mermaid Parade antics swim alongside a collective creative visualization of Armageddon in the murky waters of gentrification and cultural homogenization.
As featured in New York Magazine, The New Yorker and The Brooklyn Rail
