Support Citadel LIVE

Citadel LIVE is Citadel + Compagnie’s new feature livestream series. Launched in 2020/21, the series rises above the limitations imposed by the pandemic to allow live dance performance to shine in the digital space. Directed by Oscar-nominated Barbara Willis Sweete – former livestream director at New York’s Metropolitan Opera – the series employs experts in the field of performing arts filmmaking to bring the ephemeral nature of dance to audiences through the screen. 

Citadel + Compagnie is proud to be finding innovative ways to continue to support artists and bring art to audiences in these uncertain, pandemic times. Citadel LIVE embraces the necessity for change and commits to the development of online presentation models that elevate the performing arts.

Support The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance 

Help us maintain The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance 

Since 2007, C+C has renovated, revamped and transformed The Citadel, a former Salvation Army Citadel in Regent Park, into a place where artists rehearse, create and perform and where the community learns, explores and shares. Most recently, C+C completed the addition of The Lindy Green Wing, a much-anticipated safe and peaceful dressing room adjacent to the theatre. 

The Citadel is an integral part of its local community and is host to multiple outreach initiatives including The Citadel Dance Program, delivering free dance education to local children and youth, and community partner Toronto Council Fire’s Indigenous dance program First Fire. 

Your thoughtful gift in any amount helps us strengthen and deepen our impact here on our doorstep in Regent Park, across Canada and beyond.
