Alberta Ballet’s All of Us featuring the music of The Tragically Hip

Featuring music from Canada’s most beloved rock band, The Tragically Hip, All of Us tells the story of two warring clans who battle to inherit the earth to redesign its future anew. 

“I saw it twice and found it exhilarating. We are thrilled that the Alberta Ballet is taking the show out nationally,” said Rob Baker, The Tragically Hip.


Alberta Ballet Artistic Director and Choreographer Jean Grand-Maître found inspiration for All of Us in both current events and films such as Mad Max and Blade Runner. The post-apocalyptic drama features a dynamic soundtrack highlighting 20 iconic songs from The Hip’s legendary 30-year anthology. The ballet unfolds in a futuristic landscape featuring a riveting dystopian narrative.


Says Grand-Maître, "Beyond the Canadiana we usually attach to the music of The Hip, there lies a whole other universal wisdom which speaks, through its extraordinary simplicity, about humanity's true inner potential."


All of Us is the latest addition to Grand-Maître’s series of portrait ballets. These ballets are contemporary works that showcase music from chart-topping pop stars and musicians including k.d. lang (Balletlujah), Sarah McLachlan (Fumbling Towards Ecstasy), Joni Mitchell (Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and the Drum), Elton John (Love Lies Bleeding), and Gordon Lightfoot (Our Canada).
