Noise Quartet Meditation received the 2015 Green Room Award for Concept and Realisation, and was nominated for the Shirley McKechnie Award for Choreography. BUNKER received a Green Room nomination for Design in 2016.
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).
