On Saturday May 27, James Kudelka was honoured at the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards with a Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award. Present at the awards were dancers Evelyn Hart and Zhenya Cerneacov for a surprise performance of an excerpt of Kudelka’s Four Old Legs. It was a moving and memorable evening befitting of the prolific choreographer and his contribution to dance in this country.

Citadel + Compagnie offers its heartfelt congratulations to James on this exceptional honour and is profoundly grateful for his time with the company as resident choreographer, gifting the organization and its dancers with the opportunity to embody his uncompromising repertoire and bring to life his exciting new creations.
