a baby has made even more sense of a commonsense procedure. Washing your hands when you walk in the door is brilliantly effective prevention. Nobody needs the cold virus you came into contact with on the bus in order to “build immunity”: that’s just going to debilitate you, have you needlessly off work and possibly taking unnecessary medication. This goes double for babies and young children who simply do not need repeated colds or bouts of gastro. For babies, immunity is built by the floors they crawl on, the dogs they pat, the stuff they cram in their mouths and the dribbling contact they have with each other, as well as their crucial immunisations. No doctor will advocate repeated fevers, flus and colds as a “good thing” for a very young child. I find it remarkable that the international community is in no doubt about the threat of a global viral or bacterial pandemic and the limited ability of our overused antibiotics to deal with it, but sensible measures to break the infection chain between little children is seen as an overreaction.

ANCHOR WITHOUT RANCOUR cover story

After 25 years in television, Peter Mitchell remains one of the good guys … a decent bloke, writes PETER WILMOTH

T

hey say nice guys come last, but I reckon the opposite is true. Being a nice guy has meant, for Peter Mitchell, a 25-year career being beamed into the homes of millions of viewers, it has meant a long and loving marriage – to Philippa – it has meant five beautiful children and two grandkids, and it has meant the man sitting in front of me here at Channel Seven’s Dockland’s headquarters doesn’t have to prove a thing to anyone. At 52, that’s a satisfying feeling.

I’d never met Mitchell before. The only time I’d seen him away from my TV screen was hosting the Quill Awards for journalism last year. It’s hard to keep journalists quiet – especially when there’s a glass of wine and an opportunity to gossip with a colleague or rival – but that night he did an excellent job of MCing. That night I was sitting next to a talented writing colleague with no paucity of opinions and, thanks to Mitchell’s charm, I think we even shut up for five minutes while he was introducing the next award. That’s some achievement. Peter Mitchell grew up in Frankston where, for 18 months, his father Geoff was mayor. Young Peter and his brother found it difficult because his parents needed to be out often socialising. “For the 18 months he was mayor we were babysat every night and they’d come home and we’d be asleep,” he says. “It wasn’t great. We knew what was happening. There was a bit of pressure at school. ‘Just because your dad is boss of the world’, that sort of thing.” He lived in Frankston until he was 12, going to the beach, walking happily down to the shops. It was an idyllic place to grow up, he says. “All my memories of growing up in Frankston are nothing but fantastic,” he says. “Back then it was more of a seaside resort … I went to primary school with a lot of immigrants, British, Italian, Greek, Dutch, all coming into that area. Back then it was pinned as a booming growth area. It wasn’t a sleepy little town any more. It was proclaimed a city in 1966.” The influx of people from different countries was, for the young Mitchell, an eye-opener. “I tasted olives for the first time; this kid brought a bag of olives (to school). I thought ‘What the hell are these?’ “I used to walk down the street, go to Brashs, buy my first records. The first record I bought was John Farnham’s Comic Conversation. For Christmas I got a little turntable. I put it on, played it to death.” His parents, he says, “decided to, in their terms, quit the rat race and get a country pub and they never worked harder in their lives”. They had the pub, at Katamatite, north of Shepparton, for three years. Young Mitchell dreamed of becoming a journalist. He wasn’t a fantastic student but had “always done well with words … I enjoyed English and English lit, read a lot of books”. 8 The weekly review \ february 13, 2013

He wrote to a few places asking for a cadetship and got letters back from Channel Nine and The Herald. It was the late, gruff John Sorell at Channel Nine – or “The Bear”, as he was known – who saw something in Mitchell and hired him. “He said ‘I’ll give you a two-week trial period’,” Mitchell remembers. “I really didn’t know what to do but I went around asking questions to all the reporters and appeared as keen as I possibly could. Two weeks later he said ‘We’ll put you on’.” Mitchell remembers it as “a completely maledominated newsroom. There might have been one female reporter …” On his first day he was mentored by Kate Baillieu, who was reporting for A Current Affair, hosted by Michael Schildberger, whose offices were across the corridor. “Kate Baillieu took me under her wing and went round introducing me to everybody,” he says. “It was absolutely fantastic. I never forgot it. Out of everybody there, she said ‘You look as if you need some help’.” Mitchell spent 10 years at Nine – his last gig there was presenting sport on weekends – before receiving a call from Seven when Christopher Skase arrived. Seven had recruited Jennifer Keyte from Ten and asked Mitchell over to do weekend news. In 1983, when Mitchell was 23, the main sports reporter, Arthur Higgins, was covering the America’s Cup yacht race in Newport, Rhode Island, which created a spot on a Friday night to present sport. “So there I was, Friday night, making my studio debut next to Brian Naylor, who was very encouraging, fantastic, shook my hand. After that it took off.” Mitchell became Seven’s weeknight presenter in 2000. Years on, he “can’t believe it’s gone so quickly”. He reflects on the changes he’s witnessed. “It’s a 24-hour news cycle. It wasn’t like that back then. It was sort of like a nine-to-five position, TV news. You pack up after 6.30 and that was it. There was no overnight TV. Now it’s changed so much, and I can’t imagine how much it’s going to change in the next 25.” Mitchell is also amazed at how quickly his five children are growing up. “The middle daughter is going into year 10 this year and I was only taking her to grade one not that long ago.” His eldest is 29, married with two children, his son is 27, then there are two daughters aged 15 and 12 and a son aged nine. I say 52 is young to be a grandfather.

“It’s interesting,” he says. “You have this tolerance level but the grandchildren just run you ragged. Not as fit, just not as able to cope as I used to be. I was extremely tolerant with my own children, but with these ones you have to understand how energetic they are.” He was 24 when his first was born. “It was something that our parents did and we just thought it was normal,” he says. “I was considered a young dad and by the time (the youngest) Harry came around I was 43 and that’s considered an old father. So we’d run the gamut of the whole thing. “I was extremely proud to be a father and the great responsibility involved. ‘‘We always had in the back of our minds that we’d have a third child. I said to my wife, Philippa, ‘If we’re going to have that third child we’d better get a wriggle on because there’s a big gap’. She said OK, yeah, fine’. “Had Lucy and she was such a delight we thought we’d go a fourth, we may as well. Maisie was the girl and I said ‘Well, are we going to leave it there?’ and Philippa said ‘That’s enough’. It was a boy, so it was five. “We’ve had two very distinct groups, the older two and the younger three. Looking back, three together is a nightmare. You should have had two or four because it works out better, the dynamic, how they all sit and get on, travelling in a car.”

(whose father threw her off the West Gate Bridge in 2009). When that happened, it’s just like a jolt … And it wasn’t just that day, it was any time that story came up. But you realise you’re no good to anyone sitting there as a blubbering mess. You’ve got to get on and do the job that you’re paid to do.”

T

alk of sad stories leads to the tragic death of veteran newsreader Brian Naylor and his wife, Moiree, in the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009. Naylor was a great mentor to Mitchell. “When I was sitting next to him presenting sport, you just had to see him and the way he operated, he told you everything you needed to know about doing that job. “I was at Whittlesea on the Sunday after that horrific night of Black Saturday. I was told ‘We’re doing extensive news coverage and we want you to go to Whittlesea where all the people were coming down from the hill that day’ and there were kids – talk about emotion - there were kids coming down from the mountain, black faces, having lost their house, all their possessions, their school and even some of their friends, in tears, a sort of zombie look. “And among all that this guy comes over and says ‘Did you hear that Brian and Moiree Naylor were killed’. I said ‘You know that for sure?’ He said ‘Yeah, yeah,

“... You’re no good sitting there as a blubbering mess. You’ve got to get on and do the job you are paid to do.” It’s become a discussion about parenting and anyone with five children should be listened to. “We haven’t done it by the book,” he says. “There’s no book there.” What sort of parent is he? “I think I’m a good parent. These days with kids it’s a lot of hands-on work just making sure you’re in control and they’re not sort of running the show, which can easily be done. We’re very strict when it comes to time spent on computers and time away with friends, alone, out on the street, wandering the streets. Our daughter wanted to go to Luna Park with friends, she’s 15 years old. I said ‘Well, hang on. Is there a parent going?’ We sorted that out, there’s one going now, picking them up. Because you can’t just let them go on their own. “We’re not helicopter parents, but we do like to be in control. I think we’ve been pretty good and they’ve been fantastic kids.” The Mitchells have been based in the Mount Eliza area for 20 years, and now live in Mornington. They had a small property at Balnarring, which they loved, but it became a lot to look after so they sold it. Mitchell and the family have always enjoyed the relaxed life near the water. “There’s something about down that way … this time of year it’s crazy down there, there’s this massive population explosion but it’s always a more relaxed environment. “Our kids have all stayed down that way. We thought some of them might move up to Melbourne. And while they’ve sampled that and been overseas and had their trips, the oldest two have both ended up down there and settled down with their partners. It’s been fantastic, that area, for us. It really is a wonderful place to live.” I ask Mitchell whether there have been times when he has struggled to maintain composure on air. “Yeah there have been. Any stories involving children who’ve suffered. I can’t stop thinking about Darcey Freeman

it’s tragic’. He was in tears. I didn’t know what to do. I said ‘ I can’t believe it’. I later found out that the CFA were about to shoot an ad the following week at Brian’s property saying if you’re going to stay and fight, this is how you do it. And Brian would have been like that. He would have said ‘We’ve done all the precautions, here we go’. “I believe there was a four-wheel-drive parked on the property that wasn’t touched by anything whereas the house went and they were, tragically, inside.” Mitchell covered the Ash Wednesday bushfires in 1983. “I was sent down to Warrnambool where seven people had passed away. Forty-one people died in those fires and I thought ‘We’re never going to see the likes of this again’. And here we are, all these years later, history’s been repeated, and it’s much, much worse.” I ask Mitchell what makes a great newsreader. “It’s building up that trust with the viewers and Brian (Naylor) had that in spades,” he says. “You knew that when you turned him on every night he’d be there telling you what happened. That’s what Brian did and what I try to do as well. I try to make sure you’re doing the same thing every night, just being reassuring, giving people what they want to know.” There are unconfirmed reports out of Britain that Michael Palin is the nicest man in the world but I’m putting in a bid for Mitchell to challenge that title. Mitchell is the respectful 17-year-old cadet who turned into the charming, reassuring newsreader, and he’s also the dad in the seven-seater people mover. Twenty-five years into a TV career, being nice hasn’t hurt him a bit. \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au we welcome your feedback @

Five years making coffee barista and cocktails at a fine diner were a

good training ground, but the appeal of day-time working hours lured Josh Mrocki to his latest position behind the smart Ruggero espresso machine at Monkey Can Fly. “It was all about finding a work-life balance and I’ve always loved coffee. I hope to own my own café some day.” Mrocki spent 12 months at Pound Cafe in Elsternwick and is head barista and café manager in his latest role. He’s spending long hours at the increasingly popular café, but says “getting into management” has been a calling. The café uses Five Senses’ 24/7 blend, a combination of single-estate beans from Panama and single-region beans from San Vincente in Honduras. Mrocki uses it to create espressos with delicate mandarin acidity and spice notes of vanilla and clove. \ ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au

Imaginative touches, such as a wire cage holding colourful faux vegetables, and plaster chipped off a brick wall to suggest a world map, create a sense of merriment at this suburban café.

Daggy peach tiles, simple wooden tables and moulded crimson chairs fill the long front room.

quadrupled business at Monkey Can Fly, says co-owner Peter Hunt. The growing community around the Highett Road shopping strip must have been a contributing factor too. (Well done you, if you invested here a few years ago.) Hunt and his partner Wei Huang had Fig Tree Café for three years and used different coffee brands here and in their previous cafés in Armadale and Malvern. But a trip to a café in Collingwood serving Five Senses coffee changed his perspective. “I’m pretty fussy about my coffee. The taste is so important. I was driving from Highett to Collingwood to get my coffee every day,” he says. “I think it’s the best coffee on the market.” The café’s name came from a restaurant in Thailand that Hunt read about in a review. He’d been looking for a change post-renovation, and this seemed right. It suits the whimsical, creative décor that he says is all Huang’s work. Her sister Ying Huang painted the pretty Chinese pop art-style murals in the courtyard. Huang does most of the cooking, and there’s a strong international flavour to her breakfast and lunch dishes, which include Monkey’s scrambled eggs with

spring onion, tomatoes and bacon on sourdough, Scandinavian eggs with smoked salmon and a popular summer grilled prawn and mango salad. Service is pleasant and informal and the café’s open spaces appeal to groups. Customers in the know favour the cheery courtyard.

food \ Kendall Hill reviews david’s Country sHangHai

T

his week your trusty reviewer ventures into old Shanghai – to a forgotten outpost of the French Concession, judging by the interiors at the new-look David’s. The airy, whitewashed space blends a pinch of Provence with a bit of the Bund, and the fact that it’s tucked down a laneway at the grungy end of Chapel Street adds to the pleasant surprise of discovery. David’s has been a fixture in this neighbourhood for 15 years, first as a tea store and more recently as an upscale Chinese restaurant that’s earned a one-chef’s-hat rating for the past umpteen years. Last July, owner David Zhou decided to loosen the apron strings. He engaged go-to designers Hecker Guthrie (Bistro Guillaume, The Millswyn, Sydney’s Ivy) to give the place a more casual vibe and décor. They transformed it into a light-filled conservatory. A wall of foundry windows onto the lane illuminates white walls, flooring and seating. Interiors are warmed up with potted greenery and unpolished cabinetry and bar shelving, the latter stocked with wine and tea tins. The black cords of Chinese lanterns form a web from the ceiling. A rear mezzanine room is darker and has more of a refectory feel. Noise levels in both areas are manageable hubbub rather than shouting match. On each table sits an assortment of bowls, teapots stuffed with chopsticks, a bottle of light soy and a pile of thick paper napkins. All the implements you need to tackle a Shanghainese feast. Zhou makes a virtue of emphasising that many of the dishes originate from old family recipes, so expect rustic country Chinese rather than imperial cuisine. He also warns the kitchen will deliver food as soon as it’s ready, so expect plates to come thick and fast. Our starters all arrive in the same stint until we are eyeing off six different preparations and feeling only slightly daunted. There is drunk chick – “soft” chicken marinated in Chinese wine that is precisely as advertised, though the meat’s a mite salty for some. Green ’n’ red is a punchy mix of soy beans, chilli and bok choy that lends excitement to plates like the (not-so) spicy beef with pongy white radish. There is some debate that the DIY wrap of shredded duck and vegetables, while flavoursome, is no substitute for a classic Peking duck pancake. But we’re in a Shanghainese restaurant, not a Pekingese one, and we wipe the plate clean, so the argument is academic. You can’t eat Shanghai-style without trying the city’s famed soup dumplings, xiao long bao. Here they’re simply called steamed pork dumplings, which kind of undersells the pleasure of them. The meat inside is like a fat, firm bullet but plenty satisfying alongside the hot splash of stock and the pleasant chew of the pasta. They come with a trio of condiments – chilli paste, soy sauce and a pungent, nose-tickling vinegar – for optional extra oomph. The wine list offers a catholic choice, from $35 cheapies to Penfold’s Grange for a grand, but the

budget-conscious or cellar snobs can also BYO every night except Saturday. While we’re on the subject of great value, the four of us pay just $135 – total – for a pretty lavish sharing menu of 11 dishes. But no dumplings, so we order them separately. Mains kick off with the so-called one-bite, soft-shell river prawns. To be accurate, some of them require two bites and have big spiky legs that scrape the delicate insides of the mouth. They’re worth ordering just to watch whole-prawn novices grapple with the concept of eating the head and all. Grandma’s 8 is an old recipe that Zhou’s grandmother would make for special gatherings. Glossy dark-caramel in colour, it’s filled with expensive ingredients – scallop and shrimp, chicken and pork, cashew and chestnut – combined into a Christmas-rich casserole. Country comfort is a classic meat-and-potatoes dish of sticky pork belly with whole chats. But by this stage in our gorge-fest, there’s little that’s comforting about the prospect of tucking into whole spuds. Better to stick

with the sliced pork, its dry flesh moistened by a crisp fat crust and lifted by a tangy ginger and light soy sauce. Against such complex flavours, a bowl of soupy tofu and field of mushrooms (enoki, shiitake and so on) underwhelms, as does the Buddha’s fried rice with bok choy and egg. The set menu dessert is a moulded dome of rice spiked with red bean paste and sprawled on a spawn of sweet osmanthus. The most constructive thing I can say is that it tastes like it should be good for you. The delights of the menu far outweigh the occasional duds. And with its upbeat mood, keen pricing and newly schmick interiors, David’s could well be with us for another 15 years. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au

CARMEN AUSSIE C’MON

MUSIC \ Australian singer Louise Callinan’s role as Mercedes has put her in the driver’s seat of opera, writes PATRICIA MAUNDER

L

ouise Callinan has always loved singing. While growing up in country New South Wales she even sang to the sheep, so her bliss knew no bounds when it was time to head to an eisteddfod with her sister and school-teacher parents. “The worst punishment in our household wasn’t ‘you’re grounded’,” recalls Callinan, “but ‘you’re not going in the next eisteddfod’.” Louise first experienced these talent quests at age five when, unaware it was a competition, she was pleasantly surprised to receive a trophy for placing second. “I noticed first got a bigger trophy than second so I came back down to my seat and said: ‘Daddy, I’m going to win the next section’.” From that day Callinan has focused on the prize: being a successful singer. She was her Sydney boarding school’s music captain; took a music degree (majoring in voice) at the Sydney Conservatorium and a postgraduate degree at Brisbane’s Conservatorium; saved her fees singing with the Queensland Pops Orchestra so she could take lessons in London; was almost broke in 2000 when a Brisbane lord mayor’s fellowship allowed her to remain in Europe – and successfully audition for Paris Opera’s young artist program, the first Australian to do so. Callinan has spent most of the past 14 years based in Paris singing with this prestigious company, as well as flitting around the Continent for engagements from Spain to Germany. Yet the prize nearly fell from this talented mezzo-soprano’s grasp when she became ill after completing the three-year young artist program.

“I was on allergy medication and reflux medication and I went on vocal rest – you name it – but nothing was working,” says Callinan, whose voice became a husky shadow of itself. “It was a scary time.” Perhaps the scariest moment was her Opera Australia debut in Melbourne in 2003, playing the lead in Rossini’s Cinderella “in the middle of the worst of it”. The stress of it is still apparent in her voice a decade later, as she remembers “trying to sing this extremely difficult, florid role … I was a mess, because I didn’t know what was going to come out of my mouth on any one day, so I can’t say that Melbourne has experienced my best singing.” Callinan regained her health – and voice – with a radically altered diet; it’s a healthy regimen that still guides her today. “I pretty much have the life of a nun,” says the relaxed, cheerful singer, for whom a glass of wine and France’s decadent pastries are rare treats. Discipline is key to what may seem like a glamorous profession, as her days are largely devoted to training or rehearsing and performing, and getting lots of sleep. After marrying British bass-baritone Rodney Clarke five years ago, she moved from the high-pressure centre of Paris to a leafy suburb near Versailles, where she loves cooking organic food and being with friends. “You don’t get better at singing if you don’t improve all round,” says Callinan. “Your state of health and how well you know yourself as a person affects your ability to remain cool under pressure, get along with others and get to the meaning of what you’re doing,” she explains, putting her at odds with the stereotypical opera diva. Growing up in rural

‘I pretty much have the life of a nun’

Australia also helped make her “grounded” and “realise the value of people helping each other”. Currently rehearsing two Wagner roles with Paris Opera, this country girl-made-good recently performed the important supporting role of Mercedes in Carmen. The company’s first production of Bizet’s popular opera for a decade was a modern interpretation backed by a big budget, top cast and high expectations. Apart from singing and acting to exacting standards, there was additional pressure on Callinan: while she sings in French without an accent, that’s not the case with her spoken French. “When I was given the role, they said: ‘Louise … there must be no Australian accent in the dialogue’,” she recalls. Happily, Mercedes’ dialogue was parfait, but this high-profile Carmen presented yet another challenge for Callinan. The day it was filmed for international cinema release, she slipped on an icy path on her way to work. With a badly sprained foot, the teary singer hobbled onto the bus, then the train, and was bandaged up before heroically stepping on stage for a performance that involved dancing and jumping off a high wagon. “I had to keep moving my foot throughout the show, because if I stopped it just started to freeze,” recalls Callinan. “It was very painful, so I’d be interested to see this (film) to see if I actually managed to pull off a smile.” \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au » Paris Opera’s Carmen screens at the Como, Balwyn and Brighton Bay Palace Cinemas on February 16, 17 and 20. february 13, 2013 \ The weekly review 13

HEARTTHROB \ Tegan and Sara (Warner) » www.teganandsara.com

SPLIT PERSONALITIES \ Theatreworks, St Kilda, Tuesday to Saturday until February 17, $35/$30/$25 » www.theatreworks.org.au

It’s all change for Canadian rock duo (and identical twins) Tegan and Sara on this, their seventh album. Gone is the cultish, angsty indie of records past. Heartthrob is jubilant power-pop – a joyous fusion of Cyndi Lauper and Robyn. It’s a style shift that suits the duo. Indeed, swapping guitars for synths merely reveals the pair has been writing catchy melodies all along. On the evidence here, an older song like You Wouldn’t Like Me (from 2004’s So Jealous) could easily be polished up from post-punk twitcher to top 10 botherer. Happily, Heartthrob hasn’t traded intelligence and insight for poppiness. First single Closer with its chorus “Let’s make things physical/I won’t treat you like you’re typical” evokes the dizzy happy, rush of first love, but elsewhere the subject matter remains consistent with past efforts. There’s still plenty of evidence of the gutsiness and burnt passions that first won the duo legions of fans, but the vibe is anything but melancholic. Getting dumped never sounded as upbeat as it does on Goodbye, Goodbye. Here, Tegan and Sara play with familiar pop tropes to put triumphant spins on heartbreak and abandonment. I’m Not Your Hero, for example, inverts the sentiment of Enrique Iglesias’ Hero but retains the chest-thumping ache and swell. The result is an album that’s as instantaneous and fun as we expect of chart-pop, but without the accompanying shallowness. \

Sydney dance company LOcREaDO brings its emotional new production to Theatreworks’ Acland Street venue this week for a limited season. Two battered individuals come together and attempt to overcome childhood trauma, but love struggles to conquer all when anger rears its ugly head. Choreographed by acclaimed Jamaican dancer Loredo Malcolm, this contemporary dance performance tackles love, loss and losing control. His most recent production, Ashe, won plaudits for its diverse, striking approach to the artform, incorporating aspects of jazz, contemporary and African dance. \

DOCTOR WHO: THE REIGN OF TERROR \ (Roadshow) » www.bbcondvd.com.au

This year marks 50 years since Doctor Who’s titular Time Lord first landed on our screens. This month’s DVD release is an interesting one, not only because it hails from the series’ very first season, but also because it’s one of the 27 Who stories partly lost in time. Here, the two missing episodes are plugged by new animation, provided by Australian company Planet 55 Studios. It’s a great idea, well-executed, but it’s a shame this isn’t one of the more exciting absent adventures. There are no aliens or monsters, with the time-travellers plunged into the all-too-real horror of the French Revolution. It’s witty, occasionally blackly so, but might struggle to engage young viewers more accustomed to the modern series. Certainly, the production values are creaky. In 1963, the show was filmed more or less live, which means the actors occasionally bump into the cameras, while boom shadows dance behind them. But The Reign of Terror succeeds for the same reason the series has survived for the past half-century. It boasts an uncommon richness of ideas and a still piquant sense of adventure. \

FILM

ANNA KARENINA \ Opens February 14, Rated M » http://focusfeatures.com/anna_karenina Director Joe Wright’s take on the Russian classic is inventive to the point of distracting. He frames Tolstoy’s tale of a passionate woman within a genteel old theatre, with scenes playing out on and off stage, in the wings, the aisles and the rigging. In one memorable sequence, a daring horse race is conducted on stage, with the riders appearing and disappearing behind the curtains. When a rider falls, he lands hard on the theatre floor, his horse dying at the audience’s feet. These sequences are about as puzzling as they are striking. Presumably, we’re supposed to consider the artificiality of social constraints – everything is just for show, after all. But we have to wonder if Wright is wise to remind us that his cast is merely actors, given the rarely convincing Keira Knightley is his leading lady. As it is, Knightley gives one of her strongest performances yet, but remains a little too icy for us to truly engage with. Like his star, Wright’s film is pretty but aloof and oddly bloodless for a story rooted in deep passions. \

spends a third of his time teaching pupils in grades 3-6, a third choral conducting and a third in administration. “I have a great mix,” he says on the way to the bright and spacious music room, which is neatly lined with xylophones, drum kits, guitars and music posters. “I always wanted to work with primary students. I just think that with primary kids it’s a foundation where you can hook them into music. Not everyone will become a musician; not everyone will become a conductor or a composer but my aim is that my students will have a well-rounded view of music. “I absolutely love it here. There’s a real sense of teamwork among the staff.” Head of the junior school, Peter Tellefson, is a big supporter of music education. When a primary student enrols at Brighton Grammar, Tellefson asks him if he can sing. If so, great; if not, the boy is welcomed and encouraged to learn. As part of this philosophy, all boys play a part in junior school productions. “It’s a wonderful thing for kids to get involved in,” Furtado says. “All boys are on stage. There’s always that moment in the rehearsal process where all of a sudden the kids click into your vision. And that’s a beautiful moment.” Furtado relishes the challenge of teaching those who aren’t necessarily going to be keen musicians, encouraging them to appreciate music and understand why they like a particular piece. He also believes they are all capable of singing. “I’m very passionate about children’s singing,” he says. “I believe everyone can sing. You also have to train the ear. It’s listening, then thinking, then singing. I love it. You always get a bit excited when there’s a light-bulb moment. Sometimes it doesn’t happen straight away. Sometimes it happens to varying degrees.” As long as they fulfil curriculum requirements, Furtado and colleague Nina Sofo, who teaches the younger children, have full creative control of their jobs. In 2011 Furtado and Firbank Grammar music teacher Susan Searle helped the junior boys perform Disney’s Aladdin Junior and last year The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, sharing roles with the girls from Firbank. There is always something happening and Brighton Grammar encourages Furtado to nurture his creative spirit outside school hours. His latest project is a website of songs and music for primary schools, which he created with St Cecelia’s music teacher Ruth Wilkin. They have written almost 40 songs that schools can instantly download and use in class music, including backing tracks, vocal demo tracks, sheet music and lyrics sheets. The site, www.primarysongsonline.com, provides schools with instant and affordable material that is original and good quality. “We’re both very passionate singers,” Furtado says. “We realise that not every school is as lucky as Brighton Grammar and St Cecelia’s in that they have music teachers and such access to music education.” It is hardly surprising that this arts dynamo rarely refuses an opportunity – or a challenge. “I can’t remember if I’ve said no to anything,” he says, scratching his head. “I’ve always managed to balance other things with teaching.” Furtado has also attended Australia’s G’Day LA with the Gondwana National Indigenous Children’s Choir and recently toured regional Victoria doing workshops with indigenous children for Gondwana Choirs. “I’ve worked out that I need to be working with kids and I need to be artistically stimulated as well,” he says. “I’m very lucky that I have balance.” \ ccritchley@theweeklyreview.com.au february 13, 2013 \ The weekly review 17

\ RACHEL BERGER TAKES A LONG, HARD LOOK AT OUR LIVES

22 The weekly review \ february 13, 2013

(James Geer)

I

’d like to apologise if you’ve noticed that my English is not 100 per cent perfect, but my family only recently immigrated from the Middle East. Actually, they arrived in 1959 but it takes a while to recover from these things. More than 9 million people have migrated to Australia since 1788 and I’m one of them. My parents came to Australia when I was five, with nothing, except chaos and rage. They were trying to find a better, safer life and a new life always begins with chaos and rage. The first suburb we lived in was Spotswood in the west, which was full of new Australians – that’s what we were called back then – all of us confused and full of rage. The Serbs loathed the Croats, the Croats loathed the Germans, the Russians didn’t care much for the Bulgarians, the Poles were annoyed by the Russians, the Italians had no time for the Greeks, there was no love lost between the Greeks and the Turks and everybody hated anyone who barracked for Collingwood. My parents’ first business was a milk bar. A sad, dark little shop; the front window was empty except for a tin of Edgell beetroot slices, a bottle of Tarax lemonade and three dead blowflies. Conversations over cups of coffee, explorations of each other’s food and our shared brain and mouth bending attempts at mastering Aussie slang helped create a supportive and bonded community. The Australians were warm and welcoming, albeit continually floored by the newcomers’ boisterous enthusiasm and overwhelming impulse to assimilate and make Australia their home.


The Immigration Museum in Flinders Street manages to envelop the visitor in every Got an aspect of the immigration experience. As Ironic Iconic an immigrant, each time I’ve been there I’ve idea? been reminded of my family’s journey. But Email me it’s also given me the opportunity to explore the ways and reasons so many immigrants have arrived here from all over the world for the past 200 years. Through a range of permanent and temporary exhibitions, you learn about the history of our immigration but, more importantly, you become a part of these journeys through sound and objects as well as still and moving images. I especially enjoy bringing with me friends whose families have been here for many generations and watching them as they discover the difficult journeys people have made to get here and the reasons they leave their homeland to come to Australia – and the mark they’ve made. One of my favourite permanent exhibitions is Identity: Yours, Mine, Ours, which explores the idea of identity – who we are and who others think we are. What does it mean to belong and not belong in Australia? Through the clever use of personal stories, intriguing objects, compelling images and interactive multimedia experiences, we’re invited to find connections with others, as well as challenge the assumptions we make about each other every day. Too often, unless we’re able to celebrate diversity in our community, the wrong assumptions can lead to prejudice, misunderstanding and an “us and them” attitude. In a world of one-minute noodles, the Immigration Museum provides a gourmet experience that lingers on your palate for days. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com

Sports and history are a natural fit

The National Sports Museum

Jewish Museum of Australia

There’s so much to see in the National Sports Museum (at the MCG) that I’d suggest you massage liniment into your hamstrings and quadriceps during and after your visit. Even if you’re not a sports nut, the museum offers such a superabundance of sporting artifacts and displays that showcase the great moments, people and events in our sporting history that you’re sure to cramp from over-stimulation. It is a great place for children of all ages, with an interactive gallery that’s totally engaging. Above all it’s a chance to learn about the impact of sport on our heritage. \

Chinese Museum

In order to immerse yourself in an Australian Jewish experience the best thing to do, other than devouring my mother’s chicken soup, is visit the Jewish Museum of Australia; it’s the only Jewish community museum in the country that aims to share the Jewish experience in Australia. Originally established in 1982 by Rabbi Ron Lubofski to make his collection of beautiful Jewish ritual objects available to the public, the museum offers an eclectic range of permanent and temporary exhibitions. Calling Australia Home, a new permanent exhibition, is an intimate journey that explains what it means to be Jewish in Australia today. \

Drop into the Chinese Museum to expand and inform your Chinatown experience. Although Chinese traders were visiting the north coast of Australia from the 1750s and small numbers of Chinese men arrived as indentured labourers, convicts and free settlers after 1788, the numbers of Chinese immigrants really grew during the Victorian gold rush. One of the highlights of this Melbourne treasure is the Finding Gold experience – a display of artifacts from the goldfields. It’s also the home of Dai Loong and the Millennium Dragon, the largest Chinese dragon in the world, when they have no festive duties to perform. \

watershed developing our city \ A photographic study of rural sheds reveals a lot about our land, writes FRANCESCA CARTER

A

lmost seven years ago, architect and Monash University lecturer Ross Brewin stumbled upon the subject of his latest exhibition. Driving through the sun-dried and desolate Victorian countryside, Brewin was struck by the beautiful decay of several structures. “I was doing an architectural project in Daylesford and I would always pass a series of sheds along the way,” says Brewin. “Slowly but surely I found the right moment to take a photograph of each shed. I guess it was based on intuition, and comes from my background of being an architect and being interested in built objects.” Taken from the roadside, or anywhere that was accessible, Brewin used a basic Pentax Optio S5n, 5-megapixel digital camera, a tool he says has less power than an iPhone camera.

24 The weekly review \ february 13, 2013

“The first few sheds I took photos of, I never had any intention of making into an art exhibition. But once I did, it just seemed to make sense to continue using the same camera, so that there is a consistency and common aesthetic across all the images,” Brewin says. Opening at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery (MPRG) on February 27, Brewin’s 49 Sheds is a photographic exhibition left deliberately ambiguous. There is no reference to use, ownership or location. There isn’t even a date or a title. Brewin says he chose the sheds based on “a not easily explained visual intuition”, and a negotiation of various external factors. The issue of land privacy – in particular the presence of fences and farmers – the weather and the proximity to potentially dangerous animals such as bulls and snakes

were all physical constraints influencing the selection process. “From an architect point of view, I was very interested in the formation and the use of materials,” says Brewin. “Especially the sheds that have used local materials, for example in Huon Valley, south of Hobart, an area well known for its pine industry, there are lots of sheds made out of pine. They’re stunning objects and you can see how the material has weathered over time.” Recalling the work of German photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher, Brewin has captured each shed in a landscape format directly from the front. The style draws attention to the detail and offers an encyclopaedic richness of the structure. And while it appears simplistic, it encourages us to think about materials and the formal constitution of the structure, as

well as the wider landscape it inhabits. “I don’t want to come across like I’m not interested in the romantic idea of the Australian shed, it’s certainly part of what’s being presented in the exhibition, but I was very interested in looking at the shed as an object. Looking at their basic level of form, function, materiality, and then there is this underlining underbelly of thriftiness, and of making something new using the materials that were only available. I’m very open to a few different readings.” Senior curator of MPRG Rodney James believes this is one of the most appealing aspects of the exhibition. The fact that the onus of what you’re looking at is left up to the viewer is compelling – is it art? Architecture? Or a historical documentation of rural Australia? “When Ross approached us with his work,

When researching the design of his own “There’s sort of a feeling that people will Shearer’s Quarters at North Bruny Island, really identify with the shed.

But then time at hand, where the labour to there is the architectural sensibility. build was valued at a rate less than And the spare and economical style of the materials bought or borrowed the photograph, which is really the epitome for the venture. We can imagine that the of Ross’ practice.” equation also included time for consideration For renowned Melbourne architect John and contemplation, as form and detail were Wardle, Brewin’s images immediately arouse selected in response to function, available curiosity.

righton was converted from a fishing and farm area with the completion of the Sandringham train line in the 1880s. It became a popular outer suburb and even more popular when its lifeline was rationalised and trains no longer had to cross from Windsor to St Kilda (on a trestle over St Kilda Road). Once they could go straight through to Flinders Street, Brighton was probably as well linked to the city as it is today. The area’s heart is Church Street. In the shopping strip around Middle Brighton Station, Church Street is the southern equivalent of Maling Road and Chapel Street: the place to shop, sit and socialise. Well Street is one block west and heads up to the leafy streets that make this suburb so attractive. The house at 75 Well Street is a handsome villa dating from the 1880s with extensive later modifications. This attractive family house is typical of its time. The complex hipped slate roof gave it the low profile that those times sought. Its Lombardic brickwork, with a strong geometric pattern of Hawthorn blacks and creams, was the great fashion. It abounds here and in other suburbs, such as Canterbury, that were settled in these years. This villa sits neatly on a generous block. Even though a triple carport (with matching lichen-covered slate roof) has been set into its front garden, the property’s street presence has been retained. Originally the entry from the return verandah gave into an impressive transverse hall. A narrow return passage then led to the minor rooms of the house. The hall remains but the passage now leads past two bedrooms to the new heart of the house. The entire south side of the house has been rebuilt together with a rear extension on the east. The main bedroom, facing the street, was given a bathroom and dressing room. The roof of this extension is set low to respect the original structure. Two bedrooms and a bathroom (it offers a curvaceous spa bath) were included in this extension but its most important function was to virtually reverse the house and construct a

new living area facing north and overlooking the back garden. This consists of a living area and an elaborate kitchen. Although a few years old, the big kitchen has European appliances and granite benchtops. A dining space is set in a bay reminiscent of many Victorian houses from the late 19th century. Heritage hardliners are stolidly opposed to historic reproduction. That aside, most home seekers and watchers will be intrigued by the faultless recreation of the original brickwork here. The new back of the house matches the old front. Meanwhile, back at the front of the house: two original rooms have been retained in all their glory. A new sitting area has been created almost seamlessly from two smaller rooms. The side of the house offers a separate entry to the basement storage, which features a 97-dozen rack cellar as well as space for odds and ends. The 1149-square metre grounds are kept lush year-round courtesy of 10,000-litre water tanks and the feature lighting in the garden is sure to lure entertaining outdoors during the warmer months. Hardwood parquetry has been laid over new areas but original Baltic flooring can still be seen in minor areas. The house has no fewer than four working fireplaces. As if facing Well Street were not enough, the site has access to Halifax Street, one of the area’s grandest streets and home of the historic Bililla – probably the only national landmark mansion in the Art Nouveau style. Brighton is well served with public and private schools. The suburb has always had a certain cachet. It has a social isolation unrelated to its geographic position. This is probably because the nearest housing of similar standard is in Caulfield – a long way north and now a very different community. \ NEIL CLEREHAN property@theweeklyreview.com.au

BRIGHTON \ 20 GROSVENOR STREET A circular driveway sweeps past a water feature and up to the grand portico. Yet, it’s the indoor pool, tropical-style living spaces and rooftop deck that are highlights of this expansive residence. Even the double-width hallway makes a statement with its reclaimed floorboards. The timber theme continues with plantation shutters throughout, while the walls are painted in a rustic suede-like effect. At the front of the house are a study and two bedrooms that share a luxurious interconnecting bathroom. A sunken sitting room and nearby dining area open to a manicured inner courtyard. Watch the children while they swim in the resort-style pool from all living areas. This includes the kitchen, with its timber benchtops, cream cabinetry and a Smeg oven. The enormous family room has dark grey carpets and a tiled meals area. Here, concertina doors lead to a paved outdoor dining area surrounded by a hedge of lilly pilly trees and a mod grass lawn. Upstairs the main bedroom suite is truly huge. There is a balcony and light-filled dressing room. The tiled en suite has a raised oval spa bath surrounded by the same marble that features on vanities in all bathrooms. Two bedrooms share a bathroom, while another has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. Up again to the rooftop deck, where treetop vistas include Brighton Yacht Club and the city. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

The vendors renovated this single-fronted Victorian in late 2002, updating everything from the front room backwards. The result is a contemporary house finished with Victorian trimmings, such as the detailed latticework framing the verandah and the white picket fence, and modern touches such as polished Victorian ash floors. Bright red brings a splash of colour to the interiors, beginning with the front door. A study or optional third bedroom is adorned with a built-in bookshelf and brown shutter blinds. The hallway leads through to the open-plan kitchen, dining and living space with a high CaesarStone benchtop, Smeg appliances and an orange splashback. The bedrooms are upstairs and all share a bathroom with a bathtub. Skylights fill the area with natural light. One of the bedrooms has been built into the roof space, creating a large room, which could fit a few beds or be used as a multi-purpose rumpus room. Meanwhile the main bedroom has a balcony that overlooks the pleasant courtyard below, where there is access to off-street parking. \ ELIZABETH ANILE

This beautiful Victorian was updated five years ago, but every effort was made to ensure the classic period features were retained to create a fusion between the old and new. The picture-perfect double-fronted, polychrome-brick exterior with fine latticework is indicative of the period luxury inside, where there are intricate cornices, a grand archway in the hallway and elaborate fireplaces. Large windows frame the front door, while inside high ceilings and a neutral colour palette carry throughout the house. The main bedroom is on the left, and has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. The other two bedrooms share this front section of the house and a bathroom. Skylights allow natural light to flood the space. The combined lounge, dining and kitchen area make up the back half of the house. The kitchen has CaesarStone benchtops and Smeg and Miele appliances. A studio out the back can also be used as a garage. Decking wraps around the outside of the house, with bifold doors that make for the perfect entertainment space. \ ELIZABETH ANILE
