While we dig out our scarves and try to find warmer jackets, Citadel + Compagnie’s Artistic Director Laurence Lemieux and dancers Luke Garwood and Daniel Gomez are in Cuba for the Embarriarte Festival. They’re teaching James Kudelka’s iconic duet, Soudain l’hiver dernier to residents of Guanobo, a community 27 km from Havana.

From Luvyen Mederos, Artistic Director of the Embarriarte Festival: “Our main objective is to invite artists to perform and pass on their work to local inhabitants, so that the art can live on in our community long after the festival has concluded.”
