Lilian Steiner

Memoir for Rivers and The Dictator   

Lilian Steiner is an Australian choreographer whose practice utilises the inherent intelligence of the active body as the primary tool for creating wholly encompassing and transportive visual, sonic and kinaesthetic experiences.

As a young choreographer Lilian has been fortunate to share her work within Australia in festivals such as Dance Massive, Melbourne Fringe Festival, the Keir Choreographic Award and MONA FOMA (Tasmania), and abroad at Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis (Paris), Fête de la Musique (Geneva), Constellations Festival (Toulon, France), Les Plateaux de la Briqueterie (Paris), Hong Kong International Choreography Festival (Hong Kong) and Sounds and Visions at the Barbican (London).

As a dancer, Lilian has worked with Australian companies Lucy Guerin Inc and Phillip Adams’ Balletlab across many projects and closely with independent choreographers Melanie Lane and Shelley Lasica.

In 2015 Lilian received the Green Room Award for ‘Concept and Realisation’ for her work Noise Quartet Meditation. In 2017 she received the Helpmann Award for Best Female Dancer and the Green Room Award for the same category in 2017 and 2018.
