Writer, composer and lyricist Deepali Gupta discusses some research topics for "I Love You Stranger," a new musical which takes a personal look at bipolar disorder. Navigating a balance of research and memoir, this work is being developed in the Civilians R&D Group.
Our new podcast series — “F*cking & Dying” — explores two of the Civilians’ favorite subjects: sex and death. This first episode focuses on death as the ultimate turn-on. Stephen Plunkett performs a monologue based on an interview with porn director Craven Moorehead. And Sam Breslin Wright portrays Johannes, the director of “The Six Feet Under Club,” a festival in Austria where people can be buried alive. The episode closes with Lady Rizo singing her and Yair Evnine’s original song “Under,” based on a “Six Feet Under Club” participant who got buried alive with her lover.
