Taylor Mac is a writer, director, actor, singer, and performance artist whose fearlessly experimental works dramatize the power of theater as a space for building community. Mac (who uses judy [lowercase] as a gender pronoun) merges high and low theatrical conventions—from classical Japanese theater to popular music concerts—and interacts with the audience to inspire a reconsideration of assumptions about gender, identity, ethnicity, and performance itself.
Through judy's work, Mac challenges audiences to reimagine our relationships to one another and demonstrating ways in which the arts can be a tool for inspiring social change and building community.In The Lily's Revenge (2009), audience members are encouraged to interact with the actors during intermissions of this allegorical breaking down of binary conventions of sexuality. judy stretches and reconfigures the social arrangements of the traditional living room drama in HIR (2014). For the hugely ambitious A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (2014–2016), judy reimagines America's history through a queer lens and explores the homophobia, racism, and other forms of exclusion that have marked the American experience.
Mac's additional works as a writer and performer include The Last Two People on Earth: An Apocalyptic Vaudeville (2015), The Walk Across America for Mother Earth (2011), The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac (2006), and The Young Ladies Of (2005).
Currently, a resident playwright of the HERE Arts Center, Mac's work has been performed at numerous national and international venues, including Lincoln Center, the Public Theatre, the Sydney Opera House, St. Ann's Warehouse, and the Curran Theatre in San Francisco. In 2017, Mac was named a MacArthur 'Genius Grant' Fellow.
