Event description

Description

Built in 1883 for Anthony Reuben Ford, a Carlton printer, the La Mama building was previously used as a workshop, a boot and shoe factory, an electrical engineering workshop and a silk underwear factory until the 1960s. Sometime after that the Del Monaco family assumed ownership of the property, and it was from them that Betty Burstall first rented the building, and established La Mama Theatre in July 1967, modelled on experimental theatre activities at La MaMa Essential Theatre Company, New York. Since then La Mama has provided welcome opportunities, support and exposure to many playwrights, actors, directors, technicians, film-makers, poets, musicians and comedians, with an alumni that includes David Williamson, Cate Blanchett, Jack Hibberd, Graeme Blundell, Judith Lucy, Richard Frankland, Julia Zemiro, and many other established and emerging artists. Celebrating 50 years in 2017, La Mama is acknowledged as a significant site of Australian performing arts, and an on-going, vital crucible for cutting edge and contemporary theatre-making.
