CUE Rotterdam - guidelines

All of this can change, nothing is fixed. It is merely an intention, a wish. It is an exploration and mainly, it is an opportunity. There's a lot to say about it, but more importantly, CUE is a small simple action which can connect people and serve as inspiration.

What is the main idea of CUE?

Cue is a monthly event. It offers space to experiment. We invite artists, performers, musicians, dj's, vj's, freaks, everybody who has a need to plug and play. Cue is open to everyone who is willing to experiment. Cue is about curiousity and creativity. Cue is offering you a playground.

What do you mean by 'playing'?
It means that you are curious to expand your mind. To try something new together with others. Playing as ways of creating, stimulating others to join you. Playing means not fighting over licenses, discussing what should be the result. Playing means it's fun to do. Maybe you're crazy. We like to stimulate that.

Who is in charge of CUE?

There's nobody in charge. Nobody who judges what is right or wrong. Why would you?

What's the difference between CUE and a performance?

Normally people impose 'their space' onto others. For example their programme, their dance, their song, etc. Cue is about the possibility to play together. Nothing more, nothing less.

What should be organized?
We need spaces where we can come together and start playing. It should be comfortable with the most inexpensive and easiest ways. Open source spaces are scarce. If you want to decorate the space you are more than welcome. We try to facilitate as much as we can (beamer, pa, amp) but the more you bring, the happier we will become. So bring your body, instrument, laptop, favorite mix tape or your piano with you.

Will CUE Rotterdam look like CUE Berlin?
Different cities have different approaches. Madrid has a fixed place, the rest (Berlin, Palermo, Barcelona) are roaming around only through the initiatives of a few. It could be on the streets, in the shower, it doesn't matter. It is about the connection between people creating whatever comes to their mind.

Will it be broadcasted on Internet?
We are part of a family which is growing so it's cool to show each other what's happening or what happened. So yes, We will probably record some and put it on internet.

How will CUE Rotterdam look like?
By just following simple guidelines every city creates it's own style, it's own view of space and place, it's own content. It is only this playground idea that connects us and the wish to have an open space where there's interaction, freedom and respect towards each other. It's about the mood to create, regardless of the result. Let's CUE!
