La Mama cannot die

Post by mavisbramston » 19 May 2018, 11:37

Melbournes arts community is in shock today and mourning the loss of Melbournes iconic La Mama . La Mama is a tiny theatre in Carlton.it was a tiny space where thousands of young directors actors and Australian writers got their start.
The much loved space is now just a shell after being burnt down. Fire cannot destroy the dreams of those behind La Mama.
We must save La Mama , if not the building save the dream of La Mama.
Artits took risks. I spent hundreds of nights at La Mama. I cannot see it go.
