The Citadel Theatre and Theatre Yes are pleased to announce that Theatre Yes will begin a creative residency at the Citadel during the 2017-18 Season, creating a site-specific, immersive work to be performed in the Citadel’s complex as a co-presentation in the 2018-19 Season.
Daryl Cloran, Artistic Director of the Citadel Theatre, says: “We are thrilled to invite one of Edmonton’s most industrious and innovative companies to be in residence with us, igniting the creative connections between our companies to create a one-of-kind theatre experience for Edmonton audiences. This residency is part of our commitment to build meaningful artistic partnerships with other performing arts companies in Edmonton. The partnership provides resources and support to smaller companies, and animates our building with the work of these innovative artists. It’s a win, win, win, situation for the resident company, the Citadel, and our audiences.”
Theatre Yes’s Artistic Director and Producer Heather Inglis says: “We’re delighted by the challenge and opportunity the Citadel has presented to us to build a new large-scale theatrical offering that uses the architecture of their iconic building to create an enveloping theatrical adventure.
