Royal Winnipeg Ballet in The Handmaid’s Tale

September 22 - September 24

BASED ON THE NOVEL BY MARGARET ATWOOD

The 2022/23 season will open with special guests from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in a stunning adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s gripping novel, The Handmaid’s Tale.

Choreographer Lila York preserves the prophetic spirit and human story in her
powerful and poignant interpretation. This dance drama transports audiences, with thrilling effect, on one woman’s journey through the dystopian social order of Atwood’s Gilead

“Once seen as controversial, the story, its premise and its characters, are now fully part of our culture and our lexicon. It has been a privilege for me to work with RWB and their brilliant and dedicated dancers on this project. I am deeply indebted to Ms. Atwood for her support and her wisdom.”
—LILA YORK on working with Margaret Atwood on The Handmaid’s Tale.
