Lili Noden is the founder of Dragon Knights, Inc. She is the creative force, technical expert and lead trainer whose knowledge of street theater and performing arts began in her early childhood in southern France, her native country. She has spent a lifetime cultivating her passion for all aspects of performance, whether on stage, in front of the camera, behind the curtains, or up in the rafters! Always hungry to learn, her creative energy led her to street theater mixing circus arts. As stilts were a prominent part of her native region’s history, and through her connection with Les Friches Theatre Urbain, Lili discovered the art of stilt theater. She immediately applied her diverse skills into elaborate street and stage performances that incorporated acrobatics, stilts, fencing, trick riding and theater, collaborating with numerous well-known theater companies throughout France in the 1980s and 1990s.
