La Mama might be down but it's not out. The show must go on.

Support La Mama Theatre in their time of need.

Due to the fire at La Mama Theatre in May 2018, our performances are currently taking place at Trades Hall and La Mama Courthouse, and our administrative offices are based in the La Mama Courthouse foyer.

Please feel free to pop in and say hi!

La Mama Musica
Experience unusual collaborations, eye-opening conversations, new ways to listen, and opportunities for participation.

La Mama Musica is one of Melbourne's longest-running music nights: a curated concert series showcasing boundary-pushing artists, and amplifying voices that deserve to be heard. In 2020, we lift the veil and invite you behind the scenes, dissolving the boundaries between artist and audience to present music, sound, and ideas for curious minds.

It's always on a Monday...

La Mama Poetica
La Mama presented poetry for the first time in 1967 with Glen Tomesetti and Kris Hemmensley. Following these wonderful events, Mal Morgan began to organise La Mama Poetica nights which took place every five weeks. Now curated by Amanda Anastasi, La Mama Poetica remains a night of some of the best spoken word and poetry that Melbourne has to offer, with a diverse selection of both emerging and established poets.

La Mama Cabaretica
As the latest addition to the sisterhood of La Mama's monthly or seasonal events, La Mama Cabaretica provides a vivid celebration of the cabaret scene in Melbourne. Cabaretica is co-curated by Susan Bamford Caleo and Isabel Knight and is a, quarterly, late-night performance, offering an opportunity for established and emerging cabaret performers, and fans of cabaret, to come together to expand, explore and explode this bold and dynamic artform.

Funds to keep La Mama on stage

Right now, we are trying to secure a temporary home for La Mama and all our artists while we rebuild at Faraday Street.

We need some extra resources to help with this, so we are seeking your assistance with this immediate need.

This will ensure that those writers, performers and theatre-makers can still work as planned, while we rebuild their home.
