Joseph Marshall III tells the story of Crazy Horse, not once, but several times in this performance, weaving the story of the great leader into the larger story of the Lakota people and the crisis they encountered when facing Euro-Americans. The first half of the performance is straightforward narrative; the second half teaches lessons about how to live a meaningful life. These lessons are illustrated with key points from Crazy Horse’s life and stories from Lakota mythology. Through it all, Marshall maintains the evocative cadence of a traditional storyteller. He takes his time, underscoring each point, not just with voice but with breath and silence. His powerful delivery is supported by occasional selections of songs performed by the Crazy Horse Singers.
