Two more weekends of all three shows June 3-11, a Workshop & all-new World Cafe.

loving, living & leaving this world

Conversations about A Star Called Love; The Freedom Stories of Lala have ranged across spiritual transcendence, political correctness, racism, discrimination, meditation, personal transformation, death, loss, grief, the importance of expression and listening, hope and empowerment, and “loving, living, and leaving this world”. 

Lala’s messages have reached into kitchens and coffee shops, workplaces and yoga studios, giving us the fuel and fire to have conversations we desperately yearn to engage with. Share your ideas and thoughts by attending a performance, joining a workshop and sipping tea during our World Cafe.

And keep reaching out. Your emails and stories via facebook, email or phone call are treasures to us.
