Sex Dalmatian

March 3-11, 2023
8pm @ The Citadel
Livestream March 11

Toronto Premiere


Sex Dalmatian follows the adventures of a canine business-mogul, her too-eager assistant Amalia and her psychosexually charged arch nemesis Mr. Meeks. The titular character will be played by all five members of Rock Bottom Movement, rotating parts each episode, as a means to decentralize a single identity as a lead character. Sex Dalmatian places heavy feelings into bizarre containers, shining a humorous light on some of the darker corners of the collective consciousness. 

Approximate run time is 90 minutes.

Alyssa Martin


Alyssa Martin (she/her) is a choreographer and director based in Tkaronto. She’s working on using a new absurdist approach to bake wonky imaginative coping mechanisms into psychedelic contemporary spectacle.

Determined to help blur the distinctions of dance and theatre, she founded a company called Rock Bottom Movement in 2012 alongside friends/collaborators. Outside of Rock Bottom, Alyssa has choreographed for Toronto Dance Theatre, The Stratford Festival, Tarragon Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, FAWN Chamber Collective, with many post-secondary dance programs, and in residence at arts centres including The Banff Centre, Canadian Stage and The National Ballet of Canada (CreativAction). She has the ongoing pleasure of collaborating as a director, choreographer and movement director in theatre, musical theatre, opera and film. She recently toured Rock Bottom’s newest work, DINO, is currently choreographing a new duet with Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan, and looks forward to sharing Sex Dalmatian in 2023.
