TDT Launches 2023/24 Winter Double Bill Tickets

November 24, 2023

Vibrant, colourful aesthetics and unique collective experiences shape TDT’s first mainstage production of the 2023/24 season, a double bill featuring FACE RIDER by Fran Chudnoff, in collaboration with Driftnote and Angela Cabrera, and Odd-Sensual by Andrew Tay, with performances from the TDT ensemble members.

Building on the lore and iconography of the hermit, the hog, and the himbo, FACE RIDER is a queer, indie sleaze swamp dump. A slippery bog made for gender deviance, glittery resurrection, and live laugh loving the mess of togetherness. A performance that aims to reimagine the unsettling nature of aspirational imagery through the gloomy melodies of mid west emo, confessional lyrics, and the aesthetics of the unresolvable mundane. Made in collaboration with Driftnote and Angela Cabrera, FACE RIDER is a diver on the edge of a high board imagining its body missing a rotation and smacking through the waters of transformation – sincerity – energy – precision – mess – presence.

Created through conversations with members of the TDT ensemble, Odd-Sensual seeks to create an intimate environment where performers explore the moment before the body finds release.  Taking individual approaches, 4 dancers practice together in a sensorial playground fluctuating between meditative reflection, artistic edging and pleasurable possession.  A sensitive work that is curious about the point where things tip over,  and finds a strange euphoria in the effort of holding back from completion.


February 8 – 10 and February 15 – 17, 2024
7:30 PM ET at the Winchester Street Theatre
ASL Interpretation at February 15 performance 
Livestream broadcast of February 16 performance


TDT believes that cost should not be a barrier to experiencing live performance and is offering tickets on a sliding scale model for this season’s productions. 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 February 16 performance ($5 – $15 tickets) and the recording will also remain on-demand to livestream ticket holders until 7:30 PM on March 1. Livestream tickets will be available for sale until 4:30 PM on March 1.
