Ten years after "The Great Immensity," received a National Science Foundation grant that drew the ire of Congressional Republicans, The Civilians' Artistic Director Steve Cosson discusses the complicated relationship between the government and arts organizations.
The second episode in our “F*cking & Dying” series concerns “the white light,” a surreal concept of the soul tied exclusively to sex and death. Here, Parker Drown portrays Trevor, a real-life NYC rent boy, and Jeanine Serralles plays Kelli Dunham, a genderqueer comic who used to be a nun. The episode closes with Grace McLean singing her original song “Where is the White Light,” based on an interview with an energy healer.
