Infusing the magic of theatre with the excitement of variety and the energy of the dance floor, it's your big night out, with a delicious twist.

Uniting the hottest stars of Irish stage and screen in a glittering roulette of the brilliant, brazen and downright bizarre, RIOT has travelled the world and returns home for six shows only next May at Dublin Dance Festival.
