An interactive concert with multiple evolutionary possibilities.
How many times did you think:
What if I would have taken that flight?
What if I would have kissed her?
We choose and evolve on the basis of the choices we make, and so does LULELA.
19 different endings
228 minutes of interactive performance
Lulela, a combination from the Italian 'lui', 'lei' en 'l'altro' or 'he, 'she' and 'the other', is a hybrid jazz concert in which performaner, protagonist and audience become one fluid identity. Lulela is a musical trip that combines emotions as loneliness and melancholia with humour and romance.
Lulela is a multi-layered jazz concert, performed by 6 musicians on stage, with a story that enfolds differently during each performance. When the protagonist is at a crossroads,his path is determined by the decisive power of the audience: who he will be and what he could have been, is defined by the audience. The audience navigates through 19 different storylines of which only 2 are revealed during each performance, resulting in a 1 hour and 30 minutes interactive music theatre concert.
