Noble Riot Dance Theatre is a Victoria BC based professional contemporary dance company that is honoured to be located on the unceded lands of the Lekwungen peoples, today known as Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations. The company was founded in 2021 by Artistic Director, Kayla Henry.
NRDT is committed to making art that addresses our global existence, questions the dominant culture, provokes emotional responses and inquiries, and inspires insights - all while having a boisterous riot.
As a global society, Kayla believes we have been trained to repress expression and to allow our growing unease to become a growing disease. She suggests that we embrace chaos and empower experience within our individual selves. She proposes that we no longer lean into systems that no longer serve us, and instead, we stand up and yell, “bullshit!”
NRDT strives to both create and present contemporary dance works that are relevant, innovative and honest.
