Quiet RIOT is a creative, dynamic, independent production house built on the values of innovation, activism, diversity and representation. Founded by award winning Producer Linda Catalano, we collaborate with people of all ages, genders, sexual orientation, abilities and cultural backgrounds to develop, present, programme and represent provocative and evocative work.


Our approach is a magical blend of literal and lateral. We consider the creative alongside logistics, strategy and marketing. This allows us to challenge the stats quo, push boundaries and bravely take leaps into the unexpected and unknown with confidence.
