About NobleMotion Dance
NobleMotion Dance is one of Texas’s premier contemporary dance companies and has received critical acclaim for their “extraordinary athleticism” and “cutting edge” programming. Located in downtown Houston, NMD is a Resident Incubator at the Houston Arts Alliance and is currently on the TCA Touring Roster. The company’s season consists of three Houston productions a year and regular tours to New York City. NMD employs two choreographers, two light and technology artists, and ten or more dancers of varying styles from culturally diverse backgrounds. The Company offers a broad repertory and remains focused on creating new work—work that lives close the nerves. NMD’s mission of integrating technology, theater and dance is unique to this region.
NobleMotion Dance accolades include over 30 positive local and national reviews and is described as one of Houston’s “A-list” dance companies in Dance Magazine. The Houston Press awarded NobleMotion Dance “Best Dance Company.” NMD tours nationally and has been invited to perform by numerous organizations including The Dance Gallery Festival in New York City, Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, and the American College Dance Festival to name a few. The 2011 collaborative evening with light artist Jeremy Choate was deemed by Houston critic Theodore Bale as “the dance event to see this season.” Critic Nancy Wozny listed Photo Box D as one of the best works of 2010 and hailed NobleMotion Dance as “the new troupe to watch.”
NMD’s mission is to make work that is emotionally daring and honest; inspires discourse and understanding amongst diverse communities; and integrates dance, theater, and technology in unique ways.
