The opening night of Jean-Pierre Perreault’s Nuit fast approaches! This week Compagnie de la Citadelle is working at the beautiful Winchester Street Theatre before making its final move to the Fleck Dance Theatre where Nuit will be presented June 8 – 10 by Luminato Festival Toronto!

Below we share interviews with dancers Tyler Gledhill, Heidi Strauss, and Natasha Poon Woo on their experience inside of this project, and what it means to embody a work from the past in the present context of today.

Projects of this magnitude do not happen without collaboration. We wish to thank our partners for their dedication and support in bringing this project to fruition. We thank Toronto Metropolitan University and Toronto Dance Theatre for the gift of space, The National Ballet of Canada for the careful recreation of Nuit’s stunning set, and Espace Perreault Transmissions chorégraphiques for the permission to remount this iconic work.

And to the dancers who bravely inhabit this rich and complex choreographic world – thank you. The depth of your artistry is astounding. We cannot wait for it to be shared with audiences.

Tickets are on sale now. Get yours today!
