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 Steven Cosson, Ian Daniel and Dan Domingues, among others. Highlighted here are monologues from actors Maria Elena Ramirez and Colleen Werthmann, as well as a performance of the song “Cazador” by the band Pistolera, which consists of Ramirez & musician Sandra Velazquez.
