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.
