#Creativity as a #Cure-ator for Cure fans

May 17, 2017

Sometimes your artistic ‘talent’ is curating the talents of others – or with this Cure-inspired project, being a Cure-ator.

I have a passion for music and a little bit of musical skill spread thinly over several instruments.

Lots of my friends are super-talented visual artists and many are, as I am, big fans of the music of Robert Smith and The Cure.

So, I’m putting together a show that’s a combination of:

  1. different Cure-inspired works of art – and Cure-ios like my special Boys Don’t Dry tea towel
  2. performances of Cure songs (performed in ways deliberately different from the originals)…and
  3. stories about the Cure and pop culture (Cure humour and cultural impact)…yes the Cure is not all about dark and gloomy Goth music.

'Apparently they're better than The Cure.'

This is not a tribute show about trying to look like Robert Smith or to reproduce Cure songs note for note.

It’s a ‘compact’ show designed to be taken on the road – especially to different places around Australia and the world.

It’s amazing where you find pockets of fans of The Cure – and Cure tribute bands – in places like Texas and lesser known European cities.

Can you help with a good name that describes the type of combined (music and art) show this is?

Lots of good names have already been taken – but that’s not necessarily a problem if the other (voices) projects are in different countries.

I’ll let you know about the progress of the project – including how the works of art are progressing.
