About Compagnie de la Citadelle

Founded in 2000 and led by Artistic Director Laurence Lemieux, Compagnie de la Citadelle is the professional dance company within Citadel + Compagnie, one of Toronto’s most exciting homes for performance, artistic development and community engagement.

Compagnie de la Citadelle is known for its creative processes and intimate performances of classic works and new creations. Through remount initiatives, the Compagnie also dedicates itself to the preservation of important Canadian dance work, making available iconic repertoire to a new generation of dance artists.

The Compagnie has produced an extensive body of work since its foundation, including InteriorsLes Paradis Perdus, and Looking for Elvis, created by artistic director Laurence Lemieux, and From the House of MirthLove Sex & Brahms and Four Old Legs by James Kudelka (Resident Choreographer from 2008 – 2020).

In 2023 Lemieux’s most recent work Julie et l’univers was nominated for 3 Dora Mavor Moore Awards, winning for Outstanding Performance by an Individual, and the Compagnie’s remount of Jean-Pierre Perreault’s masterwork Nuitat Luminato Festival Toronto was lauded in the press as “mesmerizing”, performed by an “exemplary cast”.
