La Mama is reborn with the strength of her performers, audiences and staff, who are the backbone of the theatre. The artwork intends to spotlight the staff and provide an opportunity for visitors to appreciate them in a new angle. The image is a composite of a number of photographs taken on one day, which have been altered to create a dynamic and inspiring image that uplifts the viewer in a most unexpected location.
