Mad Max Meets Ballet & Alternative Rock
A post-apocalyptic story collides with breathtaking ballet and the music of Canadian rock icons The Tragically Hip during the Alberta Ballet's edgy production All of Us! Touring across Canada this Spring, the high energy production comes from the mind of the company's artistic director and choreographer-in-chief Jean Grand-Maitre and features classic Tragically Hip songs from throughout a cult hit career spanning 33 years, 13 studio albums and 16 Juno Awards amongst other accolades.
After the passing of the Hip's beloved frontman Gord Downie, the band announced they were too laying their incredible legacy to rest. Enshrining their music and contributions to the Canadian music scene, Grand-Maitre offers up a moving tribute to the music that has shaped the lives of many a Canuck. With a nod to Mad Max and Blade Runner, it tells the story of two rival gangs that populate a post-nuclear wilderness within the frame of the battle of good and evil, the former being the benevolent Clan of Hadrien and the latter the destructive Clan of Hannibal.
