ABOUT LAMA

 

Our Vision

Lama means WHY in Hebrew. 

Once you begin to ask WHY you embark on a path of limitless possibilities and that quest for the unknown makes vital theater.

 

Our Mission

 

The Lama Theater is a writer/director-driven company, founded by Hila Ben Gera at 2014, that continually raises questions and encourages bold new writing and directing.

 

Lama generates new work that explores theatrical, psychological, political and social questions through a dialogue between artists of different disciplines and often of different cultural backgrounds.

 

Our goal is to give the artists a platform to create risk-taking and thought-provoking theaterthat will inspire the audience to question the world around them.

 

We are constantly searching for curious collaborators from around the world to inspire different points of view and theatrical visions.

We build a community of artists and curious audience that need a place where, through the medium of theater, they can explore art, questions, and different point of views (sometimes outraged, occasionally absurd, and always enthusiastic and fun).
