Season 2 Episode 20

And now for something completely different: This week the IDGI team looks into the recent and sudden release of Citie Ballet‘s artistic directors, Francois and Laurence Chevennement. We talk to a number of people—including Citie’s Chair Trudy Callaghan, current Board member and former dancer Peter Akai, past board member Kathy Metzger-Corriveau, and former Citie Ballet dancer Danica Marlow—for perspectives on what this restructuring means for the company.

You can also find the official press release from Citie Ballet here.
