Taylor Mac and Matt Ray: Bark of Millions

A Parade Trance Extravaganza for the Living Library of the Deviant Theme



Aug 14, 2023 – Sep 7, 2023



Irish Arts Center 
726 11th Avenue 
Hell's Kitchen, NYC


Bark of Millions, the new hybrid work by Taylor Mac, Matt Ray, and an international ensemble of performers, takes residence at Irish Arts Center this summer for further development following previous residencies at Kaatsbaan and MASS MoCA. 

Epic in scale, this rock opera meditation on queerness features 54 original songs—one for each year since the Stonewall uprising— inspired by various queer antecedents throughout world history.

This is an artistic residency only. There are no public performances or showcases.
