Ghosts of Violence Performance Excerpts

This video highlights performance excerpts from the February 2011 world premiere of Atlantic Ballet’s Ghosts of Violence at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. This acclaimed work, created by Artistic Director Igor Dobrovlskiy in collaboration with theatre-icon Sharon Pollock, is a multimedia ballet inspired by the lives of women who have died by domestic violence. Weaving dance with theatre, music and videography, Ghosts of Violence is both an emotional expression of the women’s memories and struggles, as well as what the company calls an “innovative and poignant call for awareness, understanding and action.”Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada begins its winter season tomorrow with a performance of Ghosts of Violence in Halifax. Other upcoming performances of this work include shows in Fredericton (January 19), London (February 22), Toronto (February 25), Saint John (March 15) and Charlottetown (March 29).
