Fosberg explores issues of race and self in “Incognito”

Incognito Host, Michael Fosberg
Michael Fosberg

Imagine discovering that you are not the person you thought you were–that you have a family, a history that you never knew. How would this discovery impact your life, the lives of those around you, your vision of yourself and society? Michael Fosberg confronts these issues in “Incognito,” a one-hour, solo theatrical presentation, which will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. in Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This presentation is free and open to the public.

Fosberg conveys his story of growing up believing he was “white,” only to discover at age 32 that he is actually “black.” The performance unfolds as a mystery, as Fosberg searches for his biological father, following the divorce of his mother and stepfather. In this often funny, deeply emotional play, the audience makes discoveries of self and is confronted by issues of race, diversity, divorce, and adoption.

This presentation is part of the Penn State Berks Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
