Ghosts of Violence, which examines the issue of domestic violence, will be on stage at the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville on Jan. 14.

An Atlantic Ballet Theatre production that has been witnessed by audiences across Canada over the last three years is coming to Wolfville.

Ghosts of Violence, which examines the issue of domestic violence, will be on stage at the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville on Jan. 14. It is being sponsored by the Kings RCMP.

This poignant, award-winning work features four duets. It is part of an Atlantic Ballet Theatre initiative called Celebrate Courage, which began as a short work by Igor Dobrovolskiy, artistic director of Moncton-based company.

The full-length ballet was developed to build awareness and dialogue on intimate partner violence. Among the national partners are the RCMP-National Crime Prevention, Canadian Nurses Association and the Canadian Association of Social Workers along with 200 local and regional community partners across Canada.

The Globe & Mail called Ghosts of Violence the 'best ballet with a conscience' in 2012.

The dance starts at 7:00 p.m. Advance tickets, which are free, can be obtained by writing Const. Cara Streeter at cara.streeter@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
