Dancing with the Flute: Jane Rutter & Diane Cilento Dance! Fun Rehearsal, Karnak Playhouse FNQ, Australia

When I reflect upon the gifts my mentors have given me over the years, I feel incredibly grateful. (Amongst other mentors my flute teachers: Victor McMahon, Margaret Crawford, Don Burrows, Michael Scott, Raymond Guiot, Alain Marion and Jean Pierre Rampal). As a young woman, I met the inimitable Diane Cilento, who during her life guided me on many different paths of inspiration. I found this little video from the past:

Dancing with the Flute: Jane Rutter & Diane Cilento Dance! Fun at rehearsal, Karnak Playhouse FNQ, Australia

The flute music piece is called ‘blo’ from album Titania’s Dream, commissioned by Diane for her production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (in which I played Titania & wrote the incidental music)Diane helped me theatrically, artistically & in many ways spiritually. A sounding board for my flute compositions, flute concerts, ideas for flute meditation albums she always encouraged me to be a Renaissance Woman, to follow my own path. The Karnak Playhouse and Rainforest Sanctury FNQ became a second home to me. It was Diane who suggested I use the Rumi Poem Listen to the Reed as an introduction to Syrinx. I love to see her dancing in this clip-She’s in her 70’s so filled with a love of life (at one of the legendary dinners on the Ritz Verandah, at her beloved Karnak) She is so truly missed. Karnak has a gentle Re-Awakening Open Day
