VAIKE NEEME - Administrator/Theatre Producer

Vaike fell in love with theatre way too young and it has led her astray ever since. She sought complete immersion in the guise of life as a stage manager. Her initiation was with Hair of the Dog Theatre Co’s Julie at the Old Fitzroy Theatre in ‘99. She continued in the indie scene there, at Belvoir, and also Oval House Theatre (UK) finally deciding to make it formal and studying Technical Production at NIDA.

On leaving NIDA she worked with QPAC and received an Australia Council mentorship in arts administration with La Boite Theatre (Brisbane). This sideways step led her to arts finance and she worked for Moneypenny (Porchlight Films, Tsuki, Working Title Aus) and then if Media (Inside Film Mag/ The if Awards).

2005 saw her first foray into producing in the Stablemates season at Griffin Theatre, then various shows at the Seymour Centre in 2006 for big M Productions.

In 2007 she took over the grand, techno-colour dream mantle of ‘theatre producer’ for Pork Chop Productions - following the sea change by original Chop thesp-prod Mouche Phillips - producing the Sydney Theatre Award nominated ‘Brilliant Monkey’ in 2007.

She looks forward to making sure the hogs keep a close tie to their theatre roots whilst seeking world domination in film and TV.
