The Hang
Composer:Matt Ray
Librettist:Taylor Mac
Synopsis
The Hang is a ritual celebration of queerness, questions, and the eternity of the moment. Rooted in the jazz tradition and operatic form, it imagines the final hours of Socrates’ life as he asks his friends to stay with him a little while longer. The Hang imagines these final moments as a centuries-long communal consideration of virtue (full of all styles of food, jazz, dance, debates, and queer romps). Through this foray into the calamities of our past intelligentsia, Taylor, Matt and their collaborators invite the audience to their party and create a performance, which advocates for a more inclusive and joyous world.
