Sex trafficking is a problem known on a global scale but in the past year it has become more evident that it is also an issue right here in South Dakota. 

That's why a group of local artists are using their talents to combat this growing problem.

"Freedom: Unveiling the Cries of a Sex Slave" is a performance which tells the story of victims and survivors through a mixture of originally choreographed dance, music and cinematography.

The dramatic production looks to bring awareness to the issue by emphasize the harsh realities of sex trafficking.

“That’s really the heart of this, that it would bring it home. Like when you think of sex trafficking everyone has an idea and it normally involves somewhere over there in a different country, and the reality is its happing here,” Director, producer and choreographer Daintry TenNapel said.

The freedom project opened Saturday afternoon with a second performance at 7:30pm. There will also be two more performance January 10th and 11th at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Sioux Falls.
