ALBERTA BALLET TO PERFORM ALL OF US IN EDMONTON, AB
Latest creation features music of The Tragically Hip

"Grand-Maître has created a worthy tribute to Canada's archetypal musicians, a powerful post-Apocalyptic story with tremendous kinetic, balletic power suitably matched to The Hip's legendary energetic performances and uniquely powerful songs." - Stephan Bonfield, The Calgary Herald

Live Nation Canada and Alberta Ballet are excited to bring All of Us to new audiences across Canada in Spring 2019, including multiple performances in Toronto, Hamilton, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver. Featuring music from Canada's most beloved rock band, The Tragically Hip, All of Us tells the story of two warring clans who battle to inherit the earth to redesign its future anew. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, December 19 at 10am.

"I saw it twice and found it exhilarating. We are thrilled that the Alberta Ballet is taking the show out nationally," said Rob Baker, The Tragically Hip.

Alberta Ballet Artistic Director and Choreographer Jean Grand-Maître found inspiration for All of Us in both current events and films such as Mad Max and Blade Runner. The post-apocalyptic drama features a dynamic soundtrack highlighting 20 iconic songs from The Hip's legendary 30- year anthology. The ballet unfolds in a futuristic landscape featuring a riveting dystopian narrative.

Says Grand-Maître, "Beyond the Canadiana we usually attach to the music of The Hip, there lies a whole other universal wisdom which speaks, through its extraordinary simplicity, about humanity's true inner potential."

All of Us is the latest addition to Grand-Maître's series of portrait ballets. These ballets are contemporary works that showcase music from chart-topping pop stars and musicians including k.d. lang (Balletlujah), Sarah McLachlan (Fumbling Towards Ecstasy), Joni Mitchell (Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and the Drum), Elton John (Love Lies Bleeding), and Gordon Lightfoot (Our Canada).
