Nothing to fear

Posted by John Stoehr on Fri, May 30, 2008 at 2:48 PM

Taylor Mac, the New York performance artist whose buzz factor is quickly getting louder, a fact made evident today by the addition of a fourth show to his performance schedule, opens his first Spoleto run tonight at the Emmett Robinson Theatre.

He told CCP's Jason Zwiker in an interview that he is especially fond of exploring the interplay of contrasting aspects, kind of a yin and yang approach to the beauty and ugliness of the world.

"It's not shock for shock's sake, but for surprise," he adds. "People respond emotionally when surprised by something, and the goal of a theater artist is to get people to respond emotionally."

Here's a taste of Mac's view of the "beauty and ugliness of the world."
