Many horizontal episodes are recorded in her bed at the Villa. On horizontal, Lila and her guest exchange intimacies that most people don’t even share after sex, and welcome the listener to eavesdrop on their private conversations. They talk about family and bodies and sex and heartbreak, grief and growth and how humans relate. She curates a Horizontal Storytelling live show / pajama party series at Hacienda Studio. Her BFA with Honors in Drama is from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and her mission is to cultivate intimacy in all its forms.
