Lila is an interactive performance that was born out of play. Read more> 

We are looking forward to diving into the Lila experience with you.
Here is some important information for you:
• This is a walking performance and we will be moving around the park for 1.5 hours. It is wheelchair accessible and kid friendly. Wear comfortable shoes, you might feel like dancing at some point ;).
• The piece is 1.5 hr long. If you require water or sustenance, please bring that along.
• Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to get your headphones and settle in. The show will start right on time.
• It is a participatory show, (this is not mandatory) yet we would like you to be part of it! Bring a backpack with:
– an object that symbolizes your childhood. It can be a toy, a picture, or simply an object that reminds you of your childhood. You will bring your object back home after the show.
– something shiny, sparkly, or funky that you could wear or shake (a T-shirt, a scarf, a hat, a belt, a shaker, a pair of sunglasses…be creative.)
Tickets: $20
