Apolonia is working on a new commission with The school of Toronto Dance Theatre. This marks her 2nd commission with the school and GADFLY’s 4th! The School of Toronto Dance Theatre is a top modern contemporary training program. The historic organization has been developing artists since 1968! Yep, that’s 50 YEARS! We’re honored and thrilled to do another work for them. KUDETA features an original soundtrack composed and produced by Adinhos (Ofilio and Apolonia)! The final weekend of IMPULSE is happening this weekend Thurs-Sat. Don’t miss out (Performance Date, Location, and Tickets This way)!


Here’s a sneak peek (Videos and Photos) into what goes down during her fiery choreographic process!!



  • Commission for: School of Toronto Dance Theatre
  • Choreographer: Apolonia Velasquez
  • Original Music: Adinhos (Ofilio + Apolonia) *Commissioned by STDT
    Choreographer’s notes on the work: 
    The mind needs tension, less convention. A self-signed coup d’état.
    The piece is a state of mind. Servicing & harnessing the me versus moi.
