Margaret Atwood Q&A >
Canadian writer Margaret Atwood casts a sharp eye on world events and human behaviour, envisioning consequences that are extraordinary but also plausible, sometimes frighteningly so.

Dramaturg Uzma Hameed >
“Working together as a creative team, our challenge is to approach literature through the expressive possibilities of choreography and staging... It’s about tapping into the world of the book and the feeling of reading it – and rendering them in an alternative language.”

Emerson Dayton Q&A >
"I’d say [the best thing about being a dancer is] the teamwork that is so necessary amongst the dancers... I appreciate it every time we get to perform together."

Ross Allen Q&A >
"Looking through the profiles of the dancers and seeing how beautiful and talented they are made me want to be a part of The National Ballet of Canada."
