Royal Winnipeg Ballet: Going Home Star at the WMCA


Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet returns to Brandon with its highly acclaimed production, Going Home Star – Truth and Reconciliation, a deeply moving ballet that represents the many stories, both told and untold, by survivors of the Indian residential school system. Going Home Star - Truth and Reconciliationis choreographed by Mark Godden (Angels In The Architecture, Dracula), in collaboration with acclaimed author Joseph Boyden (The Orenda, Three Day Road), associate producer Tina Keeper and with the guidance of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and members of the Aboriginal community

The ballet explores the world of Annie, a young, urban First Nations woman adrift in a contemporary life of youthful excess. Annie feels strangely disconnected within her superficial loop. But when she meets Gordon, a longhaired trickster disguised as a homeless man, she's propelled into a world she's always sensed but never seen. Together, Annie and Gordon travel the streets of this world but also the roads of their ancestors, and learn that without truth, there is no reconciliation. 

"inspired and inspiring...may be the most important dance (ever) mounted by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet." - CBC
