Ame Henderson returns to TDT in a continuation of the experimental trajectory that drove her Dora-nominated Henderson / Castle: voyager. In that piece Henderson worked with her collaborators, including singer/songwriter Jennifer Castle, to discover what happens when the body must stay in motion without repetition. Noisy, in partnership with acclaimed musicians Robin Dann and
Matt Smith, sees her questioning the silent presence of the dancer: the song is given to the performers themselves.

How does the dance change when the dancer is responsible for creating both movement and song in an always-emerging counterpoint? Noisy resists a predetermined arc, insisting, rather, on a radical negotiation of time, movement and melody in a dance of un-muted bodies.
Created in partnership with musicians Matt Smith and Robin Dann, lighting designer Simon Rossiter, costume designer Claudia Fancello and performers Valerie Calam, Alana Elmer, Yuichiro Inoue, Justin de Luna, Pulga Muchochoma, James Phillips and Christianne Ullmark.
