Love at La Scala re-created short trailers from old Italian movie classics. Part performance, projection and karaoke with a caffeinated twist. Cousins Laura Fabi (Genevieve Butler) and Marta Fabi (Chantal Wynter) hosted audiences through seven films. This performance paid homage to the Original La Scala Theatre in Footscray that operated from 1957 - 1965.  The performance was part of One Night in Footscray, 2018.

Special Thanks to ONIF team, The Small French Cafe, Nino for translations, Erin for facilitating and Victoria University Poly for rehearsal space.
