"My first bullet flew swiftly through the head of a would-be Mexican president, cut through a street block, a dance club, a Walmart, cut back through to a past never-ending, cut past and rattled in my brain until it bloomed into these words, into my living." bala.fruta./bullet.fruit. is the second solo show by Jesús I. Valles (they/them). In the end, bala.fruta./bullet.fruit. asks, "What might be the opposite of a bullet? Where might we find it?" The performance will be followed by a conversation between the actor-playwright and Jamal A. Batts, as well as a brief Q&A with the audience.
