The Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Going Home Star - Truth and Reconciliation explores the world of Annie, a young urban First Nations woman adrift in a contemporary life of youthful excess. She meets Gordon, a longhaired trickster disguised as a homeless man and is propelled into a world she’s always sensed but never seen. Not only do they travel the streets of this place but also the roads of their ancestors, learning to accept the other’s burdens as they walk through the past and toward the future. Together, both Annie and Gordon learn that without truth, there is no reconciliation.

Commissioned by Artistic Director André Lewis.
