In 2015, Mohegan Theater Maker Madeline Sayet travelled to England to pursue a PhD in Shakespeare, but her voyage across the ocean became an unexpected journey of transformation. Riding the spirit wind of her Mohegan ancestors who crossed the Atlantic in the 1700s on diplomatic missions to protect her people, WHERE WE BELONG is a search for belonging in a globalised world. It is at once a rich investigation into the impulses that divide and connect us as people, but it is also about a wolf that learns how to become a bird and fly.
Madeline Sayet is a theatre director of Mohegan heritage. She was recently named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List in the Hollywood & Entertainment category, is a TED Fellow, a MIT Media Lab Director’s Fellow, and a recipient of The White House Champion of Change Award for her work as a director, writer, performer & educator.
