About the work:
Bridging two widely different cultures and aesthetics, Hatzis’ richly layered score for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s multimedia production Going Home Star – Truth and Reconciliation borrows from aboriginal sources as well as European ones. Featuring Polaris-winning throat singer Tanya Tagaq, Steve Wood and the Northern Cree Singers, Going Home Star explores the world of Annie, a young, urban First Nations woman adrift in a contemporary life of youthful excess. But when she meets Gordon, a longhaired trickster disguised as a homeless man, she’s 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 the two walk through the past and toward the future. Together, both Annie and Gordon learn that without truth, there is no reconciliation.
