Memoir for Rivers and The Dictator


In Memoir for Rivers and the Dictator, award-winning choreographer and performer Lilian Steiner explores the impact of human experience and the personal histories that store themselves deep within the body and its memory.

Powerful and intense, Steiner’s avant-garde storytelling is a collage of masterful movement, dramatic imagery and evocative sonic landscapes that reveal the complex impressions left by moments of war and destruction, personal power, passion and empathy.

Originally commissioned as part of the Keir Choreographic Award 2018, this is the world premiere of the full-length iteration of the work.

* Memoir for Rivers and The Dictator is part of a double bill with i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. Tickets for this show enable entrance to both.

Presented by The SUBSTATION as part of Dance Massive 2019
