    Taylor Mac was unlike anything I have ever seen at Mass MoCA.

It made all five hours all the more enjoyable. Mass MoCA Spring 2016 program book describes the performance as “strange music history” and “world’s wildest history lesson” and they are not wrong. The show is a part of what is going to be a 24-Decade History of Popular Music in New York, and consisted of the years 1836-1896. Although one decade was skipped (because of the lack of puppets…?), the show was wild from start to finish. I previously attended a dress rehearsal for two of the performed decades I was sure about what to expect from the other three; I was absolutely wrong. I hadn’t realized when attending the rehearsal that the show is focused on the political aspects of the time period and how they relate to everything today. An example of this was staging a popular dinner theater play that usually took on Chinese culture was then removed from that because we shouldn’t be taking and adapting other cultures. Instead, to prove a point, Taylor Mac made the dinner theater play take place on Mars.…

    women have virtually no role in combat, which is understandable because they are not in the battlefield. Instead, women act as a carer or lover who is waiting and supporting their men in the back. The most visible representation of American women in war is the playboy girls who appear on the stage built over the water where Willard and his crew stop refueling.
