Last weekend’s Mother’s Day “Imagine-a-nation of Lalachild” premier opened with intense beauty and love. The incredibly warm reception to the play brought me to tears, and I felt especially blessed by the Santa Cruz Community Choir’s rendition of “Go Down, Moses” which echoed through the Pacific Cultural Center like an invocation for this series.
Performing all three shows deepened, enlivened, and enriched the characters, as the magic of this solo form painted the scenes before the viewers (and my) eyes yet again. Long Shoe found his comedic edge, Mamalou stood her strong ground, and Lala danced with eyes wider than ever. My thanks to everyone who brought them to life and being-ness in our times.
We are all eagerly anticipating sharing “The Education of Lala Girl” with our ever widening circle of Lala enthusiasts. This love story of life and learning has always touched us all deeply, and it is an honor to share it with more and more. Please join us!
