About

Dancer/choreographer Lilian Steiner and artist, filmmaker and performer Emile Zile have joined forces to create something utterly of its moment and unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Becoming The Icon fuses movement and film to explore the ways in which politics manifests at the physical level. Two bodies exist in a realm whose boundaries are defined by light, their relationship and the eye of the camera. This is the metaphysical arena in which their shifting power dynamics will play out, at some times flaring up into outright confrontation, at others attempting to manipulate and persuade in more insidious ways.

The work is the first collaboration between two of Melbourne’s most exciting artists. Steiner and Zile arrive from very different artistic backgrounds, but rather than find a common point between their practices have sought to locate a third space that pushes them both in a new direction while drawing on the strengths they have developed elsewhere.

The result is a dance/film hybrid that pushes buttons and pulls no punches. Mesmeric and playful, it skips past the mind’s surface levels to prod at deeper parts of our consciousness we might not be aware existed. Become the icon.
