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."
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.
