COVID-19 Policy Update

Citadel + Compagnie will be taking a cautious approach throughout the remainder of the 2021/22 season as the Government of Ontario eases public health restrictions, and the province makes its way through the sixth wave. Throughout this transition all patrons will continue to be required to provide proof of vaccination and wear an appropriate face covering.

wind in the leaves collective


The ‘wind in the leaves collective’ has developed a significant body of work over the past decade. Our unique approach to multi-disciplinary performance takes its lead from the artistic director’s poetry which is explored and choreographed by dancers, musicians and video artists.

This collaboration across disciplines has been successful in engaging audiences and building a profile for this type of performance.  The ‘collective’ is now staging performances with other artists that involve similar elements, i.e., connecting poetry with dance and music in creation and performance.  The ‘collective’ has been approached by the Citadel to curate performances and is now Presenter in Residence at the Citadel where selected artists will share the stage and advance the notion of poetry and dance as a seamless art form practiced by racialized and Indigenous artists and drawing from historic pre-colonial practices made contemporary.
