BOOM Performance: “Mass”
Rae Mariah MacCarthy : Performance Art/Theatre
Looking for a secular, communally-created reimagining of a Catholic church service, with queer witchy overtones? The content of this mass is up to you. Come with a reading (your favorite poem, the text you sent your Dad), or a hymn (that dance track you can’t stop listening to, the lullaby your Grandma sang to you as a kid) — or don’t, and just enjoy other people’s offerings. This is not a show. It’s an experiment, where all faiths and lacks thereof are enthusiastically welcomed.
- Rae Mariah MacCarthy (priest, they/them) is an award-winning writer, performer and birth mother. Their first novel, Squad, was published in the Spring of 2019 by FSG, and their plays have been performed and developed all over the world. Venues and incubators include EST, Culture Project, Rattlestick, Primary Stages, Edinburgh Fringe, Know Theatre, Diversionary Theatre, New Dramatists, La MaMa, HERE, Dixon Place, The Brick, Atlantic Stage 2, Fringe NYC, subway stations and various apartments. They are thrilled to return to BOOM after coming in 2017 with Baby Mama!
Performance date(s) and time(s) will be announced in March, 2020.
