Anti-establishment is in, mainstream politics is out. Join our investigation into anarchist movements in the USA: pro-gun, pro-choice, anti-tax, pro-gay rights, isolationists in intentional communities living online and off the grid. It’s everything you think you know, but nothing you expect. This new cabaret is curated and directed by The Civilians 2015-16 R&D Group Members EllaRose Chary, Jordan Mahome and Jay Stull in collaboration with The Civilians' 2015-16 Field Research Team.
