La Mama’s Festival of Mother Tongues
La Mama Theatre prides itself on presenting a broad range of works by a diverse range of artists, to an audience that reflects our modern society.
In November 2024 we want to celebrate the diversity of languages being spoken in our communities through our first multilingual theatre festival: La Mama’s Festival of Mother Tongues.
We are seeking interest from theatre groups or solo theatre makers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who wish to present original plays in their native language.
Following the La Mama model, each production will receive a modest budget to present the show and the creative team will take 80% of the box office takings.
For further information or to organise a meeting to discuss, please contact La Mama’s Director/CEO Caitlin Dullard, firstname.lastname@example.org, (03) 9347 6948 or Festival Lead Curator Donna Dimovski-Kantarovski, email@example.com

- The community you want to invite: please include information about your links and capacity to market to these communities.
