Turning inspiring ideas into reality….

Motherboard partners with seasoned performing artists to help them create new work, and deliver that work to venues and presenters in Australia and abroad.

We continue to nurture an eco-system of like-minded artists who are making and disseminating innovative and socially ‘now’ performance events.

We bring years of experience in creating, managing and producing high quality events to the task of turning creative concepts into reality.

What we do

Creative Consultations

We consult with artists throughout the development of new work, proving an 'outside eye' and assisting them to determine the future trajectory of the project in relation to the performing arts marketplace.

Artist Representation

We represent artists' work and on-sell it by creating synergistic long-term relationships with venues, presenters and festivals.

See our current Artists.

Funding Submissions

Turn that frown upside down – we all hate them but God we know how to do them well. We can consult on applications, or write them in their entirety - depending on your needs and budget.

Tour Management

We’ll organise the hell out of you! We've taken work around Australia and overseas - we'll keep you on schedule and on budget.

Creating Theatre Events

We dream of things ourselves – taking original theatrical concepts and making them happen. We also take commissions and work to project briefs.
