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 choreographerMark Godden, and renowned composer Christos Hatzis, to pay tribute to the pains and atrocities of Canada’s past, while giving hope for healing and reconciliation in our future. It  will be performed in Victoria at the Royal Theatre April 1 and 2.
