Where We Belong
SEPTEMBER 9 – OCTOBER 9, 2022
155 Mercer Street, Lower Queen Anne, Seattle
In 2015, Mohegan theater-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.
