What are the stories we tell ourselves, the games we play, to manage unsettling realities? Made on ten military bases across the United States since 2016, the titular work documents mock-village landscapes in the fictional country of “Atropia” and its denizens, role-players who enact versions of their past or future selves in realistic training scenarios. An eerie exploration of America’s performance of power and identity in the post-9/11 era.
