The Tragically Hip is the latest musical icon to partner with Jean Grand-Maître for his signature portrait ballet series.
Inspired by the Tragically Hip’s most loved songs, this post-apocalyptic rock ballet is the newest creation by Jean Grand-Maître.
In a scorched and desolate world, the last humans alive are left to scavenge the charred landscapes of a dead planet in order to find food and water.
The total absence of authority and religion has created a dangerous void within which conspire the best and the worst of humanity's desires. Inevitably, the destructive forces of greed and hatred will face off one last time with the army of light and of compassion.

Inspired by a soundtrack of the Hip’s most loved music, this contemporary ballet celebrates the sound and stories of the artists that have spoken so poignantly to a generation of Canadians.
