Lili Robinson

Lili Robinson (she/they) is a theatre artist, poet and facilitator based on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Lili is passionate about centring voices at the intersections of queerness, Black diaspora, socio-economic diversity and femme identity in their work. Since graduating Studio 58 in 2018, Lili has worked and trained with an array of theatre companies including Theatre Replacement, Playwrights Theatre Centre, Rumble Theatre, New Harlem Productions, the frank theatre, UpintheAir Theatre, Neworld Theatre, and the Arts Club. Lili’s debut play, Mx, was the winner of the 2019 Fringe New Play Prize and the 2019 Cultchivating the Fringe Award, and was subsequently presented as a digital production in the Cultch’s 2021/2022 season. Currently, Lili is the Resident Curator at rEvolver Festival; she is also developing two new plays, “Infest” and “Maroon”. While theatre is Lili’s primary practice, poetry and spoken word are her first loves. Lili has been featured as a part of the Vancouver Writer’s Festival, Queer Arts Festival’s “Queerotica” and “Futurosity in the Midst of History” events, and online as part of Brick Books’ Brickyard online platform. In their spare time Lili loves napping, geeking out on Afrofuturism, and cooking food that connects them to their Black Southern roots.
