The Curators acknowledges the traditional custodians of whose unceded lands on which we meet, gather, and work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging.
Who Are The Curators?
The Curators are independent, professional artists working together to bring classical theatre to new life. Our name is derived from a broad take on the concept of curation, a word born of the Latin for “one who cares”. Because we do.
The Curators began in August 2017 with their production of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, the first professional production of the play staged in Brisbane for 86 years. In May last year, The Curators staged Amanda McErlean's exciting new one woman show, The Quighting Time followed by their critically acclaimed production of The Third Beauty, an exploration of gender in Shakespeare's female roles in October. Their first production in 2019 is a bold, new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, commencing July 19.
The Curators were founded by Michael Beh and Peter Crees and have grown to include mid-career and senior artists: Warwick Comber, Adrienne Costello, Tom Coyle, Lisa Hickey, Amanda McErlean, Helen Strube and Elizabeth Wherrett whilst nurturing emerging artists such as Patrick Shearer, Lauren Roche and Bethany Scott.
