  “No one ever talks about the moment you found that you were white. Or the moment you found out you were black. That’s a profound revelation. The minute you find that out, something happens. You have to renegotiate everything.” - Toni Morrison Pieces of Me, written and performed by Bo Petersen, is a profoundly moving personal story of the unspoken histories that many people carry within them. An exploration of family secrets, with resonances that still echo today. With Chris Petersen on piano and directed by Royston Stoffels, this multi-layered piece of storytelling renegotiates personal histories and asks questions about identity: “Who are you, if you can no longer be who you are?”
