In March 2017, Needcompany moved to MILL, a house for artists where, in addition to Jan Lauwers, Grace Ellen Barkey and Maarten Seghers, other artists are also invited to develop their work.

MaisonDahlBonnema is the group centred on Hans Petter Dahl and Anna Sophia Bonnema, who have been part of the Needcompany ensemble since 1999. In 2007 Needcompany became the producer of their work The Ballad of Ricky and Ronny – a pop opera (2007), Ricky and Ronny and Hundred Stars - a Sado Country Opera (2010), Analysis - the Whole Song (2011), Rhythm Conference Feat. Inner Splits (2014) and The Moon (2016) and introduced it onto the European circuit. Since 2016 MaisonDahlBonnema has been independent and Needcompany now co-produces their projects.

Since March 2017, MILL has also been home to Kuiperskaai, a young artists’ collective. This group, whose chief members are Lisaboa Houbrechts, Romy Louis Lauwers, Oscar van der Put and Victor Lauwers, work on their projects there in total freedom.
