Get ready for a captivating double bill that highlights Bharatanatyam and Vogue/Ballroom dance styles in 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 2 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 3 company dancers and 3 dancers from the Vogue/Ballroom community. Join us at the theatre in the spring to see what sparks from these works!

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 February 5 performance ($5 – $15 tickets) and the recording will also remain on-demand to ticket holders for 14 days after it airs.

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.
