KING / ECHO / DOGS / PROSTITUTES

Our Story

so the king died

the king's ghost / lightening laughed she sang of lust and rage unbegotten to the new dead age


their souls constituted / a freedom of dried fragrances / a language beaten into their shiva moons / sing me a song : break stones / battle one

Founded in 2009, L V M B began as a collective to promote the work of collaborating artists. Today, this work embodies contemporary danse, theatrical art forms, film, fashion, opera, poeme, performance art and eco-sustainable development in Africa - including:  how to redesign permaculture, transportation and solar power to benefit communities from now through the future.

Since its foundation, L V M B has created work such as: Once More {film}, Yoga in Ethiopia, The Difficulty of Being Human, Rosa Parks and James Baldwin's Nigger.

L V M B SERVICES

CHOREOGRAPHY

Performance pieces using movement are not just about dance, but how you feel while creating it.  Skin to skin, body to body - each work, or experience we create is one of imagination, collaboration and a sense of surrender. 

Each work has made an impact on our clients - every project we ensure details are seamless, all aspects are imaginative and handled in a timely manner.  Whenever you work with L V M B you can be sure your project will be radical, profound and honest.

ART X CREATIVE DIRECTION

We are a collective of artists x directors x makers who embrace creativity.  We practice organic flow, sometimes the project has narrative, sometimes the work doesn't have an end.  We collab, we believe there is no bad idea.  We're pretty proud of the journey thus far.

W E L É L A

Founder + Danse Maker + Performance Curator + Plant-Based Food Artist + Social Activist

Weléla's work probes into the hubris of the racialized body. Los Angeles + Bay area raised, her danse studies run over 25 years, her food art practice began at age 15 in the home kitchen then to the homes of Paris clients. And finally her collective -  L V M B {pronounced L A M B} explores spontaneous movement of humanity and folklore.
