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 drew from interviews conducted by Adam Odsess-Rubin and Steven Cosson, among others. Featured here are monologues from actors David Cale and Jordan Mahome, as well as a rendition of John Lennon’s “Power to the People” by Marykate O’Neil & her band (Gerry Giaimo, Robin Eaton, David Shuman and Mia Theodoratus).
