Get ready for a captivating double bill where distinct dance styles and practices are in conversation with each other as TDT company dancers and guest dancers converge in two new works: helix by Atri Nundy and GIVE ME ONE by Danah Rosales.

Atri Nundy brings together 3 company dancers and 2 Bharatanatyam dancers in her new creation, helix, which takes on a search for the contemporary in Atri’s own choreographic language. Altogether, the artists embrace the possibilities of the body with the spine at the crux of this piece. As they lengthen and spiral their bodies with deep rigour, care and concentration, the ensemble will show audiences the beautiful complexity of the body in the simplicity of movements.

GIVE ME ONE from Danah Rosales, known as ‘New Legend Mother Maldita Siriano’ in Toronto’s kiki ballroom scene, will fill the theatre space with elements from their ballroom experience, including Runway, Face, and Vogue. Featuring original music from DJ, producer and rapper myst milano alongside striking styling by Diséiye, this invigorating work is built upon the bonds formed and nurtured between 3 company dancers and 3 artists from the Toronto Ballroom community, all while celebrating each of their unique personalities, dauntlessness, beauty, power and joy.


Please be advised haze and flashing lights will be used during the show for special effect.

Ticket Options + Livestream

TDT believes that cost should not be a barrier to experiencing live performance and have decided to offer tickets on a sliding scale model this season. Ranging from $10 to $45, audiences are invited to select whichever ticket price option that works best for them. There will be a livestream of the Saturday March 25 performance ($5 – $15 tickets) and the recording will also remain on-demand to livestream ticket holders until 7:30 p.m. on Saturday April 8. Livestream tickets will be available for sale until 4:00 p.m. on April 8.

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.
