LOD / Gabriele di Franco
Wed 16 Dec - Fri 27 May

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 an interactive jazz concert by composer Gabriele di Franco. On stage you meet six singers and musicians, who immerse you into the story of one central protagonist: 'he'. After each chapter, you are faced with a dilemma: will 'he' and 'she' be happy? Or does she run off with the 'other'? Through a voting system you decide about the fate of the main character. Every night, the audience navigates through nineteen different storylines, of which you discover two per evening. Every evening enfolds a different performance. Which story do you get to hear? That is entirely up to you!
