Choreographed by the famous New York-based choreographer Lila York, Royal Royal Winnipeg Ballet's The Handmaid's Tale is a poignant and powerful production based on Canadian literary giant Margaret Atwood's dystopian, prescient 1985 novel. Billed as a "dance-drama," the ballet production follows the account of Offred, a "handmaid" (women who were forced to bear the children of the oppressing powerful men called "commanders"), and her struggle to resist and seek independence in a totalitarian, theonomic world.
Through non-verbal ballet idiom, performed en pointe and structured as 16 episodic scenes that form a narrative arc, the show captures the thrill and essence of the novel, making it raw and dark. Since its conception in 2013, the production has successfully shown a fearless female protagonist who sits well with the narrative of the "Me Too" movement.
Aside from the impeccable choreography and superb performances, the production boasts a driving contemporary pastiche musical score and a highly-creative multi-level set that complements the color-coded costumes of the dancers. This is simply one of the most visually-pleasing ballet shows to come to Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. The show will run for three nights, from September 22-24. If you decide to watch this highly-anticipated production on its second night on September 23, Friday, you can get your tickets here.
