Artist Discussion with Madeline Sayet

July 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Artist Discussion and Q&A with Mohegan Director, Playwright, and Actor, Madeline Sayet 

Join us on Sunday, July 10 at 6:00 p.m. as we welcome award-winning Mohegan director, writer, actor, and educator Madeline Sayet to the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian. We invite you to this in-person conversation and Q&A to celebrate Sayet’s work and the production of her solo play, Where We Belong, now showing at the Goodman Theatre as part of a national tour presented by the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in association with the Folger Shakespeare Library.  

Where We Belong, at the Goodman Theatre through July 24, 2022, is a personal story of an Indigenous theatre-maker’s journey across geographic borders, personal history, and cultural legacies; in search of a place to belongSayet’s autobiographical account in Where We Belong shares her experience pursuing a Ph.D. in Shakespeare in England. There she finds a country that refuses to acknowledge its role in colonialism while echoing a journey to England braved by Native ancestors in the 1700s following treatise betrayals, forcing us to consider what it means to belong in an increasingly globalized world. 

This intimate conversation with Sayet is free for Mitchell Museum Members and $10 for non-members. Admission for Native citizens is always free. Tickets can be purchased in advance or onsite.
