The stories of child soldiers have been told over and over again. But the musical Strange News takes a different approach. It's an intriguing production mixing sound, image and a gripping story told by Ugandan actor Arthur Kisenyi.
Although in the past five years he has been touring through Europe and the US with the play, the prospects of working as an actor in Uganda are slim. Actors there are taking matters in their own hand and are looking for alternative ways to perform.
In Africa in Progress this week we talk to Arthur Kisenyi about the challenges of playing the role of a child soldier, about reconciliation and the state of the arts in Uganda and on the continent.
Guest: Arthur Kisenyi (Uganda)
