We are MILKE. Your go-to for getting your show to the stage.
We have creatively developed and produced work for the Sydney Opera House, Brisbane Powerhouse, Melbourne Theatre Company, Sydney Festival, Darwin Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, VeniceBiennale, Brisbane Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne International Arts Festival, The Arts Centre, Melbourne Fringe Festival, La Mama, and the Adelaide Fringe Festival to name but a few.
How artists create a show absolutely blows our minds. Taking an idea and turning it into a real-life show? Incredible. What we do is take that show (or even just a seed of an idea) and get it out there to the right audience and beyond. We *also* show you how to do it yourself, through our courses, workshops, and 1:1 mentoring.
The biggest misconception? Producers are magical unicorns who can and will do absolutely anything for your show.
Sure, we make a lot of things happen (like, a lot) here at MILKE. But we don’t have a magic wand or golden ticket. What we *do* have is years of nurturing the right networks and building our knowledge. And a whole bunch (20+ years) of experience working with all kinds of artists also helps.
Oh, and it’s pronounced like ‘milky’ but spelled with an ‘e’.
We don’t force a one-fits-all philosophy around here.
Everything we do comes from Laura’s extensive experience producing shows. It’s applicable to real life, and designed to enhance what you’re already doing rather than forcing you into doing things a certain way.
First up, we love to hear about where you’re at right now, what you’ve got in mind and what you need from us. We’ll invite you to a free, no-obligation chat so we can get to know each other a little better.
Once we’ve had an initial chat, we can let you know how we can help, or whether someone else might be a better fit (yep, you read that right). We want the best outcome for you, so we’ll send you to someone who can help if we can’t. We know a lot of good people in the industry, so rest assured you’ll be in good hands. Ready to see if you and MILKE are a good fit?
We work with bloody good people, and they say such nice things.
Artist & Producer
Laura has produced my work for the past four years. She is committed, direct, organised and a clear communicator, and is passionate about advocating for artists and supporting opportunities for Australian independent artists. Her approach is collaborative and artist-led, and she is a delight to work with.
I’ve had the great good fortune of having Laura in my professional corner many times over many years. Her work ethic is matched only by her boundless adaptability and unrelenting sense of humour. She is unflappable; a genuinely creative thinker and a bona fide lover – and champion – of the arts in this city and this country. She has conjured opportunities for me that I still marvel at. She’s the biz!
