Cure – restaged

A darkly humorous look at life on the edge with the aid of live music and mechanical pieces.

Exploring the territory between sickness and health.

Plagued by an infectious collection of characters, the hapless patient encountered unorthodox curative devices, unearthly hospital routines and angelic hallucinations. Through a delirious soundscape of music and song, together with an elaborate collection of mechanical apparatus and alarming concoctions, ‘Cure’ explored the curious territory between sickness and health, where mental and physical battles are fought.

A site-specific indoor show, for the Upper Campfield Market building in Manchester as part of x.trax international showcase.  The show was presented within a series of marquees built within the Victorian iron wrought and glass structure of the former market.

Cure was a remarkable achievement, holding a mirror up to our society’s dis-ease
