The Walk Across America For Mother Earth

by Taylor Mac

directed by Paul Zimet

The Walk Across America for Mother Earth combines Taylor Macs exuberant theatricality with the richly scored work of Talking Band to tell the story of a nine-month protest walk from New York to a Nevada Nuclear Test Site. Eighteen and eager to flee his suburban conservative upbringing, Taylor joined this group of political activists, ageing hippies, baby hippies, punks, anarchists, dykes, radical fairies, men, women, senior citizens, and children on a nine-month walk across the United States. Re-told and re-imagined by Taylor, Walk asks its artists and audiences to take a second look at how the idea of community sometimes fails to unite us, and sometimes brings us together in the most surprising ways.
