Lilian Steiner

Lilian Steiner is an Australian dancer and choreographer whose practice utilises the inherent intelligence of the active body as the primary tool for creating wholly encompassing visual, sonic and kinaesthetic experiences. Her work embraces the power of ephemerality within energetic exchange by emphasising the presence of weight and density within the sculptural nature of sound, the body’s form and light as an extension of the body.

As a dancer, Lilian has worked with Australian companies Lucy Guerin Inc. and Phillip Adams Balletlab across many projects, as well as with independent choreographers Melanie Lane, Shelley Lasica, Brooke Stamp; visual artists Brook Andrew, Ash Keating, Mikala Dwyer and Alicia Frankovic; performance art group Public Movement; and architect Matthew Bird (Studio Bird). In 2017, Lilian received the Helpmann Award and the Green Room Award for Best Female Dancer, as well as nominations in 2013 and 2016.
