The 9:30 PM concert will center on the subject of death. The evening is directed by Mia Rovegno, and features songs by Michael Friedman (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, This Beautiful City) and Shaina Taub (Political Subversities). Here's how it's billed: "The Civilians' artists have entered some surprising and dark territory and have come back to share their enlightening tales of death, near-death experiences, corpses, and insights into forensic anthropology. Hear performances of interviews from hospitals, prisons, spiritual communities, and funeral homes along with material from associate artist Alix Lambert’s investigation into the Body Farm: a facility for study of the decomposition of human bodies and research site for criminal investigations. The evening will showcase the thought-provoking, unexpected, and at times humorous personal stories of encounters with death, perspectives on death, and the industry that surrounds it."
In addition to Jenkins, McFadden and Ackerman, the performance will include Matt Dellapina, Dan Domingues, Nina Hellman, Meghan McGeary, Emily Rossell and Jeanine Serralles.
