The Aperture takes audiences on a wild journey that explores America’s fetishizing of global turbulence, violence and race. Halfway between dream and reality the piece explores the relationship of an American artist trying to save a boy soldier from Uganda. In this world premiere production, two actors play six parts in an energetic and insightful expose.
