The con­clud­ing part of Anu Pro­duc­tions’ ex­tra­or­di­nary Monto Cy­cle, a 100-year his­tory that has moved from the area’s once no­to­ri­ous red-light dis­trict through its Mag­da­lene laun­dry and its heroin epi­demic, now brings us right up to speed.

Against to­day’s re­al­ity of in­vis­i­ble mi­grant work­ers and re­turn­ing vices, it looks for hope, be­gin­ning with a lo­cal for­tune teller from the past. FUNK CY­MANDE James Brown may have been the most sam­pled man in hip-hop, but this English funk band give him a run for his roy­al­ties. Cy­mande only re­leased a hand­ful of al­bums dur­ing their run in the early 1970s, but tracks such as Brothers on the Slide, Bra and The Mes­sage have been sam­pled by De La Soul, Grand­mas­ter Flash, The Fugees, Gang Starr and many more. Ex­pect a smokin’ set of funky, soul­ful Afro rare grooves. CLAS­SI­CAL/SOUND­TRACK Jonny Green­wood A sound­track com­poser – in­clud­ing 2007’s There Will Be Blood – when he’s not be­ing Ra­dio­head’s lead gui­tarist, Jonny Green­wood pre­mieres Wa­ter, which will be per­formed by the Aus­tralian Cham­ber Orches­tra. Green­wood’s piece will be pre­ceded by Haydn’s Sym­phony No 83 in G mi­nor (more pop­u­larly known as La Poule/The Hen) and Mozart’s Pi­ano Con­certo in B flat ma­jor K595. Wa­ter will be fol­lowed by Tchaikovsky’s evoca­tive Sou­venir de Florence. Haydn? Mozart? Tchaikovsky? Orches­tras? A long way from The Bends, eh? SINGER-SONG­WRITER Soak Derry’s Soak has come a long way in a short time, but she con­tin­ues to sur­prise and beguile, not least with her re­cently re­leased (and ir­reg­u­larly spelled) sin­gle, BA no­Body. Soak’s per­for­mance here is the kick­start show for this year’s al­ways im­pres­sive Hard Work­ing Class He­roes event, which con­tin­ues its wild and wired way into the week­end. More de­tails in next week’s Ticket. THE­ATRE Fre­quency 783 Bro­kentalk­ers, the Ir­ish con­tem­po­rary the­atre mak­ers with a keen so­cial conscience and in­vig­o­rat­ing com­mand of tech­nique, re­turn to the fes­ti­val with a new piece that ex­am­ines health, ag­ing and the fu­ture from the per­spec­tive of two dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions. Like the ti­tle, the tone of planet earth, it is an idea with univer­sal res­o­nance.
