An exhibition of photography and film from Milk Crate Theatre's 24 years of paradigm-shifting performance works, with three events to get connected with our community and works.

In systems theory, emergence is the production of an outcome that cannot exist without the specific sum of all its parts. Milk Crate Theatre's works and processes are specifically crafted by and for the individuals involved. Over our 24 years, this constantly evolving structure has catalysed in a kaleidoscope of formats, artworks and expression styles, and effected profound transformations.

For those new to Milk Crate Theatre, this was a vibrant introduction to our community and evolving body of work. Those familiar with out work and had been involved in the past or are involved now, were able to celebrate the new narratives and visions you they had been a vital part of creating.

We hosted a number of events in celebration of the exhibition including celebrating the exhibition opening with some music, speeches and a brief introduction to our history and featured works; an afternoon open mic basking in the creativity of the MCT community - featuring songs, poems and monologues; and finally a joyous Q&A session with Collaborative Artists Matthias Nudl, Darlene Proberts & Kamini Singh, along with key Support Artist Lucy Watson and hosted by MCT's Program Manager & Producer Jessica Saras.
