Hello, My Name Is...


A seven-room living installation, Hello, My Name Is… invites each intimate audience to investigate their ideas of home, self, and nationality. Partly autobiographical, this piece is inspired by Deb Sivigny’s experience as a Korean adoptee and her journey in 2015 to Seoul, South Korea–her former, then-unfamiliar homeland. There she met many members of the adoption community–discovering that, while each adoptee’s story is unique, they share the experience of being an insider and outsider of two different nations. 

Deb Sivigny, the current Lead Producing Playwright for The Welders Playwright Collective is a play-whisperer. As a costume and scenic designer, she has worked on over thirty world premieres.
