Taylor Mac’s Holiday Sauce

Events
Performance
 

Taylor Mac’s Holiday Sauce plies acerbic wit, subversive politics, circus pageantry, sartorial riot, and boundless compassion to the holidays.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“I’m a reminder of things you’ve forgotten, dismissed, or buried,” Taylor Mac said during A 24-Decade History of Popular Music. Mac returns to Ann Arbor with the ultimate holiday survival guide, taking the season head-on and celebrating all of its dysfunction with Holiday Sauce. Joined by longtime collaborators Machine Dazzle and Matt Ray, a spectacular band, and surprise special guests, Mac reframes the songs you love and the holidays you hate, taking aim at Santa’s lap, nativity scenes, consumerism, and more in a dazzling, and at times shocking, take-down of the sentimentality of the holidays.

Please note: This performance contains provocative adult themes.

Post-Performance Photo Booth Experience in the Power Center Lobby

The role of Sexual Consent Santa will be played by Brooklyn-based theater artist, Glenn Marla. Sexual Consent Santa serves as “an enactment of intimacy rules” during the show (The Los Angeles Times) by engaging with Taylor Mac and other members of the cast as they playfully cast light on permission and acceptable closeness during the holidays. After the performance, the party continues in the theater lobby where you can let Sexual Consent Santa know if you’ve been naughty or nice by posing for a photo at Santa’s holiday photo booth.
