Get ready for a captivating double bill where contemporary dance practices meets Bharatanatyam and Vogue/Ballroom with new creations from Atri Nundy and Danah Rosales.

Choreographer Atri Nundy will be expanding upon research from her recent Pilot Episodes residency at TDT, in which she will bring together 3 TDT company dancers and 3 Bharatanatyam dancers in her latest work. Meanwhile, former TDT dancer and the Mother of Kiki House of Siriano’s Toronto Chapter, Danah Rosales, will be collaborating with company dancers as well as dancers from the Vogue/Ballroom community. Join us at the theatre next spring to see what sparks when these dance forms intersect!

Atri Nundy

Atri Nundy started learning Bharatanatyam at Sampradaya Dance Academy under her teacher Lata Pada at the age of 4. After completing her arangetram in 2005, she continues to work as a teacher at the Academy and as a Company dancer and choreographer at Sampradaya Dance Creations.

While training in Bharatanatyam, Atri was fortunate enough to be able to train in various dance forms. This combination has given her the interest to explore beyond the traditional realms of Bharatanatyam. She has had the opportunity to work with Kevin Ormsby at KasheDance, Nova Bhattacharya at NovaDance and Brandy Leary at Anandam Dancetheatre. She created her first ensemble piece, Mindful Chatter, that was commissioned by Anandam Dancetheatre and supported by the Toronto Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts in April 2022.
