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.
This episode features more material from “Occupy #S17,” a special cabaret the Civilians hosted at Joe’s Pub to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. Mia Rovegno directed the evening, which featured performers Dan Domingues and Emily Rossell performing monologues based on interviews that Domingues and Kelly McCreary conducted with OWS protestors. The episode closes with Caitlin Montclare, Alex Nolan, Amanda Ruzza, and Liz Kelly performing “The Punk Prayer,” the song that led to three members of Pussy Riot serving terms in a Russian prison.
