“Growing old is something better practiced by young people.”  

James Kudelka’s Four Old Legs is a duet to fall in love with…Kudelka has the eye and maturity to sketch the long-term relationship experience in subtle, yet very legible shades. – NOW Magazine

The lure of ballerina Evelyn Hart is irresistible. – Paula Citron

Kudelka has skilfully created a lingua franca between the two respective dance worlds of balletic prim and viscerally modern, with the choreography itself becoming a synergistic melting pot of various stylistic influences, including pedestrian walks and gestural language, often punctuated by weighty pauses and moments of recognition between the two characters that pack an emotional wallop…a poignant ode to love. –The Winnipeg Free Press

A profoundly moving duet. – The Globe and Mail

Evelyn Hart was nominated for a 2019 Dora Award for Outstanding Performance of an Individual.

Accessibility: The performance will take place in the Mimi Herrndorf Studio Theatre, on the second floor of The Citadel. Community members using mobility devices can access the space via an elevator, however, it requires a staff member’s assistance to operate. We regret this obstacle to greater accessibility. The Citadel is near an accessible bus stop on Parliament Street at Dundas Street East.
