About The Citadel

The Toronto studios of the internationally renowned dance artists of Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie, the Citadel is home to both CLC’s groundbreaking theatrical and community-based work.

In October 2012, The Studio Theatre at the Citadel was underwritten by a generous donation by the Delaney Family Foundation as part of Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie’s Brick By Brick fundraising campaign, through which the company has been able to turn an abandoned building in Regent Park into a dance centre containing a theatre, workspaces and a yoga studio.

The theatre is now named the Mimi Herrndorf Studio Theatre in memory of Anna-Marie (Mimi) Herrndorf, (mother of supporter Kiki Delaney), a passionate supporter of the arts in Canada.
