Also on Friday and again on Saturday, Cairns Little Theatre presents an original Christmas pantomime at The Rondo Theatre. This tale provides the backstory behind one of the great Christmas mysteries – just how does Santa get to every boy and girl, worldwide, in one night? Attendees are encouraged to provide an unwrapped present or non-perishable foodstuff which will be donated to the Salvation Army at the conclusion of the run. Visit www.therondo.com.au for show times. ht Andrew Bonneau is a young emerging artist who lives and works in Cairns. Since his studies at the National Art School in Sydney, the Charlie Sheard Studio School and the Julian Ashton Art School, Bonneau has focussed on portraiture and figure painting. For Bonneau, a portrait is the most interesting and challenging subject. Similar to portraits of the Renaissance period, his painted figures embody much of a classical realist tradition. Cairns-based artist Serena Kuring’s experience of synesthesia is translated through her latest exhibition. A current PhD candidate at James Cook University, Kuring explores synesthesia’s automated, involuntary sensory response triggered by the stimulation of another sensory pathway. The works on paper translate Kuring’s visual experience of music through the use of line and colour. Through this she encourages consideration of the diversity of understanding of reality by others.
