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.
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.
