Together at last...
Australian singer/songwriters Diana Anaid and
Monique Brumby are artists who have seen it
all in the music industry. Having toured together
in 2001, they struck up a friendship that sees
them re-unite this month in a show that will
engage audiences with new songs and quirky
live collaboration. Both Brumby & Anaid released
their debut albums in 1997, both have record label
and life experiences that make for great bedtime
stories for over 18s as well as entertaining song
writing and live performance banter. Both have
forged careers in the cut-throat world of the music
industry and by a strange yet synchronistic twist
of fate both women have just released their 4th
studio albums. Fittingly they are touring nationally
playing a string of double headline performances
across Australia in August/September 2010.

Murder in the Dark
Director Tonya Grelis has taken acclaimed author
Margaret Atwood's short story collection Murder in the
Dark as inspiration for a new production on show at the
New Theatre as part of Sydney Fringe Festival. Grelis
has reworked Atwood's tales into a striking theatrical
experience. "These stories were born to be on stage,
from my rst reading I was awestruck by their ability
to so beautifully illuminate the fragile and disturbing,
allowing me to map what is left behind when a desire to
kill is out of control."
Catch Murder in the Dark from September 16--22 at
the New. Wed - Sat 6pm, Sun 9pm. Tix $24/20.
Sydney folk that like a spot of alt country/
folksy goodness will want to check out this
triple bill featuring internationally acclaimed

Expect an evening of exuberant, passionate
entertaining music from these luscious
ladies. The three acts compliment each other
perfectly. This intimate evening is a must see
for music lovers.

Fans of queer lmmaking will want to head over to the
University of Technology this month when the Broadway
campus plays host to Satrang: South Asian Film
Festival sponsored by Trikone Australasia.
The festival takes place over two weekends in September
(18, 19, 25 & 26). Highlights include the Australian
premiere of the 2008 UK ick I Can't Think Straight
starring the drop-dead gorgeous Indian actress Lisa Ray,
who plays the role of Tala -- a London-based Palestinian
woman set to marry a rich handsome Arab. But on her
way to the altar, Tala meets another woman who makes
her question her choice -- and sexuality.
Another highlight is Dunno Y ... Na Jaane Kyun, the rst-
ever mainstream Bollywood movie to feature a full-blown
same-sex relationship plus steamy kisses between two
of India's hottest actors. Best of all the actors will be
ying in from Mumbai for the festival's launch for an
after-movie Q&A. It doesn't get more intimate!
