"Located in a former electrical engineering workshop and silk underwear factory on Faraday Street, Carlton, La Mama Theatre has provided a home for new and experimental live art for more than fifty years. The venue continues to promote work that challenges expectations and to support artists who are pushing theatre in new directions. La Mama Theatre’s extensive paper based and visual archive, which goes back to 1967 and includes scripts, posters, programmes and administrative records, is held by the University of Melbourne Archives."
