Name: Where We Belong
Date: June 24, 2022 - July 24, 2022
Event Description:

June 24 - July 24, 2022 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Around 75 minutes with no intermission

An indigenous theatre-maker journeys across geographic borders, personal history, and cultural legacies; in search of a place to belong.

In 2015, Mohegan theatre-maker Madeline Sayet travels to England to pursue a PhD in Shakespeare. Madeline finds a country that refuses to acknowledge its ongoing role in colonialism, just as the Brexit vote threatens to further disengage the UK from the wider world. In this intimate and exhilarating solo piece, Madeline echoes a journey to England braved by Native ancestors in the 1700s following treatise betrayals – and forces us to consider what it means to belong in an increasingly globalized world.

Content Transparency: This production contains flashing lights, depictions of racism, and discussions of borders, war, loss of language, residential schools, colonial theft of human remains and repatriation.
