ATLANTIC BALLET THEATRE OF CANADA PRESENTS GHOSTS OF VIOLENCE
Oct. 5, 7:30-9:30 pm, Fredericton Playhouse
Fredericton Playhouse in partnership with the Mi’kmaq- Wolastoqey Centre Presents Ghosts of Violence, performed by the Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada. Ticket prices are $38 regular; $34 for members; and $16 for students (all prices +HST). This ballet has been creatively adapted to honour the Indigenous women of the Wabanaki Territory – the Mi’kmaq, Wolastoqiyik, and the Passamaquoddy. In the spirit of authentic reconciliation, Igor Dobrovolskiy, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada and Susan Chalmers-Gauvin have collaborated with faculty and volunteers to infuse Indigenous knowledge, culture and symbolism within Ghosts of Violence to bring attention to the issue for indigenous cultures and the broader community. A showcase for the artistry and versatility of the critically acclaimed dancers of the Company, Ghosts of Violence is an emotionally charged work inspired by the lives of women who have lost their lives at the hands of an intimate partner. It is an innovative and poignant call for awareness, understanding and action. Through evocative lighting, theatre, music and multi-media, the ballet captures the memory of these silent victims and tells stories of their struggles, their hopes, their joys and our loss. This unique version of the ballet will also feature dancers and singers from the Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre.

Dir. TODD SOLONDZ, USA 2016, 90 min.
A dark, starkly funny story of a single dog and the many different people she touches over her short lifetime. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener.

DR. GARY IRWIN-KENYON BOOK-SIGNING EVENT AT SUNBURY SHORES: PATHWAYS TO STILLNESS
Oct. 6, 5-7pm, Sunbury Shores, St. Andrews
Dr. Irwin-Kenyon is founding Chair and Professor, Gerontology Department, St. Thomas University, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. He is also a teacher and practitioner of Tai Chi with more than thirty years experience.
His book is about stillness: What it is. How you can find it. Where it hides itself. Why it is necessary to your life.
Learn how stillness can change our view of what it means to lose and regain the sense of “our story” in the midst and aftermath of loss, as well as our commonly shared misconception of the nature of time and how we usually experience it.
Learn also how our negative beliefs about aging can be made more positive. This book is also about learning to appreciate wandering or meandering along life’s pathways. It does not contain Six Easy Steps to Wisdom and Immortality. Rather, it offers a way to approach your journey, which you then create and discover on your own, with help! You are invited to find a Pathway to Stillness that fits “your” life.

BOOK LAUNCH OF: BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS – POEMS BY ROBERT MOORE
Oct. 12, 7-8:30 pm, TUCK STUDIO, 122 Prince William Saint John NB
Taking its inspiration from Melville’s famous line “If man will strike, strike through the mask!”, Based on Actual Events punches through the surface of visible things, grabbing wild at the driCing actual. Calling himself a “a realist in fabulist clothing,” Robert Moore gives us a book- length sequence of sleek, fiercely comic, colloquial poems whose aphoristic storytelling is pegged to a nostalgia for sublimity. His project is to find new frames of reference for our estrangement from the world. With each burst of invention and stylistic high-spiritedness (“So we reverse engineered the awesome and all we got / was this lousy poesy”), Based on Actual Events adds up to be Moore’s best book yet.


SACKVILLE FILM SOCIETY: FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS
Oct. 13, 7:30 pm, Vogue Theatre, Sackville
Singles $10., six packs $48 & full season memberships available at box office all welcome
Dir. STEPHEN FREARS, UK 2016, 111 min. Directed by Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen), Florence Foster Jenkins tells the inspirational true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The film celebrates the human spirit, the power of music and the passion of amateurs everywhere. The voice Florence (Meryl Streep) heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. At private recitals, her devoted husband and manager, St Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), managed to protect Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give her first public concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall, St Clair realized he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew.
