As a friend of Citadel + Compagnie you help to cultivate the talents and the work of the vanguard of Canadian dance, as well as be a good and present force in our Regent Park community. We couldn’t do any of this without your support. Thank you.


Four Old Legs: the film

Help Us Move From Stage to Screen

Four Old Legs: The Film adapts James Kudelka’s original adored stage production, featuring iconic Canadian ballerina Evelyn Hart and Moldovan-Canadian dancer Zhenya Cerneacov, to the screen. Described by the Globe and Mail as “a profoundly moving duet” the work celebrates time, memory and experience, and is performed to a playlist from Chopin to Judy Garland to Talking Heads. Four Old Legs: The Film will be directed by Oscar-nominated Barbara Willis Sweete and captured at the historic Betty Oliphant Theatre.

Citadel + Compagnie has secured $50,000 towards the development of Four Old Legs: The Film and is seeking an additional $250,000 to bring the project to life. Funds raised above and beyond the total goal of $300,000 will go towards the James Kudelka Living Dance Fund, developed to support a larger legacy project that employs digital solutions to pay tribute to the extensive artistic contributions Kudelka has made to dance in Canada.
