Ten years after "The Great Immensity," received a National Science Foundation grant that drew the ire of Congressional Republicans, The Civilians' Artistic Director Steve Cosson discusses the complicated relationship between the government and arts organizations.
This episode concludes our “Occupy #S17” series, which features live recordings from 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 Dan Domingues, among others. Highlighted here are monologues from actors Matt Dellapina and Jahi Kearse, as well as a full-cast performance of Neil Young’s “America,” led by musicians Marykate O’Neil and Jill Sobule.
