R&D Program Director Megan McClain interviews Associate Artist Rebecca Hart about her project with composer David Kornfeld being developed in the Civilians R&D Group. Based partly on their own neurodiverse lives, the work asks questions about creativity, sanity, and what we consider "normal."
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.
