South Dakota, 1890. South Dakota, 1973. For the Lakota Sioux, time has stood still in a stand-off for the earth at Wounded Knee. What happens when progress engages the past and forces the inhabitants of Wounded Knee to redefine borders and cross bloodlines. The Ghost Dancers brings the audiences to the intersection of the occupier and the occupied, to the battleground between history and hope. Apparitions guide our journey through past and present, to show us familiar characters in unfamiliar places and take us to a foreign land on shared soil.
