Having enjoyed critical success following its world premiere, Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet presents Going Home Star – Truth and Reconciliation, April 7 – 9, 2016 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
Ten years in the making, Going Home Star is a deeply moving classical ballet of hope and understanding representing the many stories, both told and untold, by First Nations Residential School survivors and their families.
Hailed as the most important dance [ever] mounted by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet (CBC), the company assembled some of Canada’s finest talents, including award-winning novelist Joseph Boyden, acclaimed choreographer Mark Godden, and renowned composer Christos Hatzis, to pay tribute to the pains and atrocities of Canada’s past, while giving hope for healing and wholeness in our future.
