TONI CHILDS

Saturday 1 November

In an exclusive for Melbourne's west, we're proud to announce American singer-songwriter Toni Childs will be joining us for a special one night only concert on Saturday 1 November 2014.

As an Emmy-award winner and multiple platinum album artist, Childs first burst onto the charts in 1988 with her debut single Don’t Walk Away from her Grammy-nominated album Union, and officially entered the collective pop-rock consciousness.

With a string of iconic hits including Stop Your Fussin', Don't Walk Away, House of Hope, Many Rivers to Cross, and the hugely popular I've got to Go Now; be sure to book early for this memorable evening.

Support Act: Monique diMattina
Possessing a “Dylanesque swagger with the Aussie vernacular”, Monique diMattina is renown for her 3RRR and ABC radio segments where she takes requests for inspiration to write a song-in-an-hour.

The Fulbright Scholar cut her teeth in New York City, recording her first album live at the famous Greenwich Village 55 Bar and playing alongside the likes of Lou Reed, Bjork and Jimmy Cobb. Since returning to Australia in 2009, diMattina has released four studio albums in as many years, including 2010’s critically acclaimed Welcome Stranger, and two exquisite solo piano albums.

She has sold out shows at the Melbourne Recital Centre, Melbourne Jazz and Stonnington Festivals, Sydney’s 505 and Wangaratta Jazz. Monique performs regularly with Clare Bowditch, Doug deVries and the Melbourne Tango Quintet.

TWO MORTALS

Thursday 28 August - Saturday 30 August 2014

Following a sell-out season at La Mama in 2013, Two Mortals returns with cheekiness, wit and wisdom for a fresh look at mortality.

Two Mortals was created from interviews with people who work and live with mortality everyday - an undertaker, a minister, a wills and estates lawyer, a cryogenicist, a carer, a palliative care nurse and a counsellor. This multi-character performance uses headphone verbatim technique, including pre-show interviews from the audience, unique to every performance. Come early and be part of the script!

Presented by La Mama Mobile.
