WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Pieces is a collaborative effort by writer Robert Grogan and international directors Michel Chahade and Genia Startseva from Bedlam Ensemble. A piece is described as a "single unit". Pieces by Robert Grogan is an effort to connect together those single units to create a whole, a humanity, a community.
Pieces is the story of each individual trying to make sense of the world around them, discussing the fragility of life, the afterlife, dreams, hopes and ambitions.
As individuals, each piece is separate yet cannot escape the multitude of other pieces around them. The level of interaction and the impact each person has with those around them can either make or break humanity.
