I don't go to plays too often but I was intrigued by this one because of the topic, history and venue. Robert did a great job acting out several different characters and weaving us through multiple tales of Native Turtle Island dwellers. I like...continued

Owens-Greygrass gives a remarkable performance in "Ghostlands."

Description

Written and performed by Robert Owens-Greygrass (Lakota)

Directed by Kevin Sifuentes (Hopi)

Producing Artistic Director Randy Reinholz (Choctaw)

Producing Executive Director Jean Bruce Scott *_

Walking on Turtle Island_*

In this tour-de-force performance, Robert Owens-Greygrass embodies twenty-two characters—from a grandfather, to a mixed-blood sun dancer, to a boy who has lost his dog, to an eighty-year-old Ojibway woman, to Iyeska, a trickster and spirit guide who moves through centuries and inhabits various spiritual “skins.” Greygrass portrays the often untold Indigenous experience through these powerful and unique stories of Turtle Island (North America).*_

Ghostlands of an Urban NDN_*

Follow Robert, a multiethnic-non specific-lower-middle-class-urban-NDN (Indian) white guy, as he navigates the conflicting worlds of a mixed-race heritage. Acclaimed storyteller Robert Owens-Greygrass portrays sixteen characters in this gritty look at the sometimes humorous, always gripping urban Native journey through the ghostlands.

These shows are appropriate for those ages 14 and older.
