    January 20, 2011: What to wear when you’re about to chain yourself to a bowling alley to protest the nuclear arms race? Why, sequins, of course. Head to toe!

    Lina Zeldovich

    January 20, 2011: If Priscilla Queen of the Desert (in which a gay trio embarks on a journey across Australia in a ramshackled bus) married South Park (an American sitcom featuring four crazy kids who end up in beyond bizarre adventures), they would give birth to The Walk Across America for Mother Earth by Taylor Mac.

    The Walk Across America for Mother Earth

    Dan Bacalzo

    January 21, 2011: Hope and disillusionment go hand in hand in Taylor Mac's The Walk Across America for Mother Earth, at La MaMa E.T.C.'s Ellen Stewart Theatre. A collaboration with downtown mainstay The Talking Band, Mac's uneven new play is based on the writer-performer's experiences as a teenager when he participated in a nine-month protest walk from New York to the Nevada Nuclear Test Site.

    The Walk Across America for Mother Earth

    Jason Fitzgerald

    The Walk Across America for Mother Earth

    Adam Feldman

    January 21, 2011: The exuberantly talented Taylor Mac is not the sort of person who tends to get lost in a crowd. But that’s what happens for most of The Walk Across America for Mother Earth, staged in collaboration with the veteran avant guardians of the Talking Band. Mac’s desultory memory play is based on a 1992 protest march that he joined as a teenager: “To be born into a time of such apathy and destruction is a magnificent privilege,” he says at the start, eager to join outsiders with “the tools and the will to strive for beauty.”
