THEATRE (FRINGE FESTIVAL) The Tempest. Nestle Dairy Farm Theatre, The Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central. Wednesday to Friday, at 7 pm. $85, $65 (members). In English. Inquiries on 2521-7251, reservations on 2537-1482. Eastern and Western theatre techniques are used in this adaptation of Shakespeare's play from the Performance Exchange. Directed by Japan's Risako Ataka and featuring London actor Daniel Foley who shows off his versatility by performing all the roles, the play uses aspects of wayang kulit (shadow) theatre from Indonesia combined with Japanese traditional dance and Bhutto dance. The Third Sex. Fringe Studio, The Fringe Club. Tuesday to January 15, 10.15 pm. $130, $100 (members). In English. London-based Malaysian actor Chowee Leow has chosen the joys and sorrows of two prostitutes as the subjects of his first play, The Third Sex. One is an Oriental transvestite, the other an Afro-Caribbean transsexual. Performed by the London-based British Chinese Ascendant Theatre Company and directed by Ramond Yeung (of Banana Skin fame), the play moves from the light-hearted cabaret environment to the seedy underworld of prostitution. How To Live. Nestle Dairy Farm Theatre, The Fringe Club. Saturday to January 19, 7 pm. $140, $105 (members). In English. This radical interpretation of Ibsen's work, which stresses his preoccupation with the relationship between public and private, was something of a wow at the Edinburgh Festival. Time Out magazine described The Volcano Theatre Company of Swansea as 'probably the rawest, most furious physical theatre company in Britain'. Nigel Charnock, who performs in Hell Bent (see Dance) directs. The Electric Circus. Nestle Dairy Farm Theatre, The Fringe Club. Wednesday to Saturday, 8.45 pm. $100, $75 (members). Today and Friday, 1 pm. Cityplaza. Free. A multimedia variety show which mixes elements of the traditional circus with the gizmos of new technology, by Planet Vaudeville of San Francisco. Fred Anderson and Paul Nathan entertain with juggling, magic, comedy, escapes and live interactive video. CLASSICAL MUSIC Hong Kong China Philharmonic Orchestra. City Hall Theatre, City Hall, Central. Saturday, 8 pm. $50, $70, $90. Urbtix on 2734-9009. The highlight of this concert is the Butterfly Lovers' Concerto arranged for pipa (a Chinese stringed instrument) and orchestra, featuring soloist Xu Hung. Other works include Rossini's La Gazza Ladra, Mozart's piano concerto No 21, and Schubert's symphony No 5 in B flat. DANCE Hell Bent. Nestle Dairy Farm Theatre, The Fringe Club. Wednesday to Saturday, 7 pm. $140, $105 (members). Nigel Charnock's photograph alone gives me nightmares, but then again theatre is all about pushing back boundaries so this is definitely 'entertainment' of the experimental variety. The Independent newspaper described the actor and dancer as a 'virtuoso in damage' and his performance takes us into the sick mind of a man obsessed with sex, violence and guilt. Not for the lily-livered. CINEMA In The Line Of Fire. Lim Por Yen Film Theatre, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Wan Chai. Tomorrow, 7.30 pm. $45. Urbtix on 2734-9009. In English with Chinese subtitles. Starring Clint Eastwood, John Malkovich. What do In The Line Of Fire, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and The Battle Of Algiers have in common? Eastwood is in two of them but the missing link is that Ennio Morricone composed the music and the Arts Centre is presenting a batch of his movies. This fast-paced movie, which features Eastwood as the president's bodyguard on a serious guilt trip, is worth catching if you missed its theatrical release a year ago. John Malkovich is as mesmerising as ever as the malevolent assassin. Le Rayon Vert (Green Ray). Space Museum, Tsim Sha Tsui. Wednesday, 7.30 pm. $40. Urbtix on 2734-9009. In French with English subtitles. Starring Marie Riviere, Vincent Gauthier. Fans of writer/director Eric Rohmer are spoilt for choice this week, with another of his films L'Ami De Mon Amie (My Girlfriend's Boyfriend) playing at the Arts Centre on Friday. Although Le Rayon Vert is slow-moving and the heroine's not the most appealing of characters, you can't help being drawn into her loneliness as she embarks on a physical and spiritual journey. ART Recent Paintings By Xiao Haichun. Pao Galleries, 5th Floor, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Wan Chai. Tomorrow until Saturday. Presented by Hanart TZ Gallery. Xiao Haichun is known as a jade carver - some of his pieces have been collected by the Chinese Government as 'national treasures' - but this exhibition concentrates on his work as a contemporary Chinese ink painter. Over 30 landscapes, figure and flower paintings make up his largest ever solo show.
