India's ace flautist plays at Artworks Grammy nominated: Ronu Majumdar plays the flute and drums at his concert at Artworks. India s ace flautist Ranendranath Majum- dar, popularly known as Ronu Majumdar, will be performing at Artworks Theatre on Sunday. Ronu is a force to reckon with in the realm of Indian classical music, both as a musician and a performer. He began playing the flute under the guidance of his father Dr Bhanu Majumdar and was also fortunate to receive training from his grand guru Ravi Shankar. Ronu s music is described as transcen- dental, taking the listener on a spiritual journey. One moment he plays classical Indian music, the next is a jam session with guitarist Ry Cooder. He has received a Grammy nomination, performed and composed for the Hollywood movie Primary Colors, had con- certs in the Kremlin in Moscow and the Palais de Beaux Arts in Brussels and collabor- ated with top artists like George Harrison, Ry Cooder, John Hassels, and Larry Coryell. Doors and cafe ´at Artworks Theatre open at 12.30pm. Tickets cost $20 prepaid from the theatre's TimeOut Cafe ´, open 9am to 3pm Tuesday to Saturday or $25 at the door. A funny circus romance Circus Royale: Trapeze artist Tallis, played by Forrest Denize, finds love on her big OE. The wry comedy which finishes at Artworks Theatre this weekend is loosely based on the lives of Edward VIII and Mrs Simpson. There are two more chances to see the new tongue-in-cheek comedy Circus Royale by Colin Beardon this weekend. The play is loosely based on the lives of Edward VIII and Amer- ican socialite Wallis Simpson whose romance led to the king s abdi- cation in 1936. Thecastof14isledby Keith Paterson, who plays David, the family owner of a run-down cir- cus, and Forrest Denize, who plays Tallis, a tra- peze artist who is on her OE from New Zealand. It is being directed by visiting Irish director Liam Burke. The play is set in Eng- land. David and Tallis meet and fall in love but they are not supposed to. Playwright Colin Beardon says people don t really know what happened after Edward abdicated. I thought it would be interesting to see how they existed afterwards. The final two performances of Circus Royale are at 7.30pm on May25and26at Artworks Theatre. Advance tickets cost $20 or $15 for student and community card holders. The $15 rate also applies to groups of 10 or more. Bookings are strongly recommended. Door sales, if they are available, will be $25.
