Taylor Mac in conversation

With Damien Cave from The New York Times

Join us for a free artist talk with the star of the 2017 Melbourne Festival, Taylor Mac.

Taylor and company members from A 24-Decade History of Popular Music will be in conversation with Damien Cave, the Australia Bureau Chief of The New York Times.

After the conversation the audience will be invited to ask questions of Taylor and the company.


Taylor Mac is the darling of New York's cabaret scene, hailed as its bedazzled shaman, radical angel and searing social critic. Mac’s stellar ascent has been accompanied by a constant stream of accolades, including Guggenheim and Doris Duke awards, Obie and New York Drama Critics Circle special citations and most recently the Kennedy Prize for Drama, whose previous winners include Hamilton. 


Damien Cave is the Australia Bureau Chief for The New York Times. Damien has covered more than a dozen countries for The Times, including Mexico, Cuba, Iraq and Lebanon, and has also written extensively about music, culture, race and politics in the United States.
