‘A Jamie Durie-designed communal terrace garden is a serene retreat’

MICHAEL HARRY LIFESTYLE EDITOR

PROPERTY OF THE WEEK recently caught a documentary, Dreams of A Life, that’s showing at ACMI until the end of the month. It’s a reconstruction of the life of Joyce Vincent, a seemingly ordinary London woman who died alone in her flat in 2003 and wasn’t discovered until three years later. As police finally caught on to the fact that her bills had been unpaid for many years, they beat down her door and found the 38-yearold skeletonised in front of her still-blaring television. What might have been a depressing watch ends up being a strangely uplifting film, thanks to the sensitive reenactments and interviews, by director Carol Morley, that make sense of the tragedy. The people who knew Vincent tell her story, and slowly the audience builds a picture of a person just like you or me who somehow managed to fall through the cracks. It’s one of those films that creeps up on you in the days and weeks after you see it. Like a worm through an apple, Vincent’s story got me thinking about who would come looking for me if I slipped in the shower. How long would it take before my friends and family noticed the missing Facebook updates or the silent phone? I’d like to hope it wouldn’t take more than a day. It also made me wonder what the people who’ve touched my life might say about me if they were ever tracked down for an obscure documentary film in years to come. I would be one lucky unit if anyone spoke as highly as the friends, family and colleagues of Adrian Cherubin speak about him. A legend behind the scenes at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Cherubin was recently put in hospital after a major stroke. As Kathryn Kernohan reveals in this week’s cover story, this ordinary bloke has inspired the biggest names in local comedy to band together for a fund-raising gig to help with his continued recovery. If only Joyce Vincent had been so lucky.

EVOLUTION mary-jane.daffy@fairfax.com.au ome of the year’s best television has blasted into my living room over the past two weeks. After watching often cringeworthy coverage of the London Olympics on Channel Nine, the London Paralympics coverage on ABC that followed was joyful. I laughed, maybe wept a little (OK, a lot), and was truly inspired by the professional coverage of athletes with sportsmanship (whether winning or not) and spirit worthy of national applause. Matt Cowdrey was a highlight, becoming Australia’s most successful Paralympian after his world-record 50-metre freestyle swim. He went on to claim two more gold medals and later acknowledged the entire Australian team for its collective efforts, which put Australia into fifth place on the medal count. Bravo! Not wanting to burst my happiness bubble after the curtain was drawn on another Paralympics, I headed to Queen Victoria Market for a dose of another sort of Australian legend. Padre coffee has set up shop as part of the new String Bean Alley, made up of multicoloured shipping containers filled with wares at the end of M Shed. Padre occupies the farthest south-west corner, with a wooden crated vegetable garden separating it from the car park. But the two turquoise Slayer machines perched on the bench inside this converted grey shipping container are beacons enough. Once inside, coffee lovers’ thirsts are satiated with single origins, blends, and various takehome coffee contraptions. But the piece de resistance is the Clover brewing machine that Gito, the coffee whiz, so lovingly presides over. It’s filter coffee unlike you’ve ever had. The $11,000 machine is worth a little pat considering Starbucks has bought the Clover Company and has now halted public sales. Thankfully, Padre was all over that. With dials for temperature, extraction and time, each bean is given the royal treatment. Our Paralympians deserve the same.

Where do you ... Get some culture Melbourne has fantastic laneways that are full of culture. I’d probably head down Degraves Street.

Indulge yourself I don’t get to do it very often so I’d go to a spa and have some sort of massage. If I was feeling very spoilt I’d go the full kit and caboodle.

Spend your last $10 It would have to be a crisp, icy cold beer, maybe something on tap at San Telmo (14 Meyers Place, city, call 9650 5525).

3

Stay up late Visit either Siglo (upstairs 161 Spring Street, call 9654 6631) or the Carlton Club (Carlton Hotel, 193 Bourke Street, city, call 9663 3246). I always seem to lose hours in these places.

Go on your own If I did just need some chill-out time I might go to a bookstore like Hill of Content (86 Bourke Street, city, call 9662 9472).

8

Buy something new Collins Street or the Bourke Street Mall. I like to be outside when shopping. There are great arcades as well that have some good little shops.

Want to keep a secret Melbourne has so many bars and eateries it’s hard to keep track. To keep a secret I would tuck myself away in a hard-to-find bar like Murmur (17 Warburton Lane, city, call 9640 0395) or grab a coffee at Captains of Industry (Level 1, Somerset Place, city, call 9670 4405). Hopefully no one would find me there.

UPDATE

Like Dad, like Bloke Terri Psiakis crunches the numbers on the men in her life make a lot of jokes about my dad. I adore him but the fact remains that he is an accountant. He’s a very good one, mind you, but the thing about accountants is that, generally speaking, they all think they’re hilarious. Take my dad’s favourite joke (please – I’m still trying to offload it): “What did the constipated accountant do? He worked it out with a pencil.” Throughout our lives, my two younger sisters and I have heard this joke and others like it more times than I can count, which disappoints my accountant father because I know he always hoped his skill with numbers would rub off on me. Sadly, I turned out to be a word-nerd instead of a number-nerd, although I’m pretty sure dad was rapt when I married a numbernerd (The Bloke works in finance). They say women marry their fathers and the similarities between The Bloke and my dad – while not profound – are definitely there. Both are number-nerds. Both go spare for any type of processed meat. If you dish them up a vegetarian meal, both will ask: “That was a nice entree. What are we having for main?”

junior resident smartarses would pipe up with “dad’s home”. Dad took our jokes well and got his own back on me years later when I called to tell him and mum that The Bloke had proposed, and instead of congratulating me immediately, dad pretended to leave my phone call hanging with the phrase “I’ll get the calculator”. Father’s Day has come and gone* but it’s my dad’s birthday this week. His birthday is two days after mine, actually, and it falls the same way every year (that’s a dad joke). I may not take after dad in the number-nerd stakes but this year, for his birthday, I’m making a concerted effort to be more like him. Dear dad: I’m finally being careful with my cash, so for your birthday this year I’m giving you this column . . . and a bulk-buy packet of laxatives. *You can tell because of the high number of men now wearing new socks and undies. ■ You can follow Terri on Twitter @terripsiakis

Neither will let me near their lawnmower. Once, while hugging The Bloke upon his return home from work, I said, “You smell like dad” – it was then I realised that my dad and my husband wear the same deodorant. Furthermore, they both enclose that deodorant with a business shirt and a windowless office, resulting in them both sporting the exact same not-unpleasant scent at the end of the day. However, if I told dad that he and The Bloke smelled alike he would undoubtedly find a way to make another joke about digestively challenged accountants. My dad is incredibly generous. He would give you the shirt off his back (and now you know what you’d smell like if you took it). However, being an accountant, he’s also careful with money. When my sisters and I were younger, we mistook his care for stinginess and ribbed dad mercilessly: “Dad, you’re so tight you squeak when you walk.” The door to our kitchen pantry had a magnificent creak and whenever anyone opened it, you could guarantee that one of the three

COVERSTORY

Thrown a

laugh-line

A funny thing happened when one of comedy’s greatest supporters took ill. By Kathryn Kernohan

he 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival was the biggest yet. More than 600,000 people attended shows during the three-week event in March and April, and the box office took more than $12 million. But as audience members packed out venues and enjoyed the big name acts, a real-life drama was unfolding behind the scenes. Unbeknown to most outside the festival’s inner sanctum, veteran technical producer Adrian Cherubin, who has worked with the festival for more than 20 years, suffered a stroke and was rushed to the Alfred Hospital. As word spread among the staff and performers, the sense of shock grew. Almost immediately, plans began to take shape for a fund-raising event. Many of the biggest names in Australian comedy put their hands up to help in any way possible. Yo, Adrian!, which will take place at the Regent Theatre on Wednesday, will feature Dave Hughes, Charlie Pickering, Wil Anderson, Denise Scott and Judith Lucy, among others. Money raised will go towards Cherubin’s ongoing care and rehabilitation – he has since moved from the Alfred to Caulfield Hospital, where his family is encouraged by his progress – and the event will also raise awareness of the Alfred Hospital’s annual Father’s Day Appeal. “You wouldn’t have heard of Adrian, but he’s one of those superstars of production that makes our theatres look so good during the festival,” says Comedy Festival general manager Virginia Lovett. “The comedy community and the sense of benevolence and humanity is quite overwhelming,” she says. “I’ve worked in the arts world for 20 years and I’ve never seen a benefit show come together as quickly as this.” Speak to anybody involved with the festival and it becomes clear just how popular Cherubin, 52, is. The Project regular and festival veteran Kitty Flanagan regards him as an instrumental part of her touring success, and says he is “the reason the festival looks and feels like a world-class event.” Among many roles at the festival, he has worked on the staging and set design for televised events like The Gala,

The Great Debate and the RAW Comedy National Grand Final. Outside the festival, Cherubin has served as tour manager and set designer for Flanagan and Carl Barron. “The man is a genius,’’ says Flanagan. ‘‘Lots of people can create a nice set but Adrian can create a brilliant set that also fits in a suitcase. “He always has good advice and clever ideas, and he’s always up for a nice glass of red at the end of a show.” Cherubin’s sister, Lisa, has spent countless hours by her brother’s bedside in the past five months, and says the family is only now realising how loved he is in the comedy world. “We knew Adrian toured with some well-known comedians but he was never one to name drop or big note,” she says. “So to be receiving cards and emails from so many people in the comedy world has been extraordinary. Some have written and spoken of their gratitude to Adrian for the great work he’s done and others of how he has nurtured them in their careers.” As Lovett points out, Cherubin’s long stint with the festival means he has seen comedians such as Hughes and Anderson progress from playing tiny rooms to headlining in 2000seat theatres. “For these comedians, he’s been that helping hand there for their entire careers,’’ says Lovett. ‘‘He’s got a great reputation

for being generous with his knowledge when emerging artists are setting out and that’s why so many comedians want to help out now.” Stand-up comic Justin Hamilton echoes the sentiment, saying Cherubin (“or Pops, as he is affectionately known”) has shown him nothing but kindness, “whether I was just starting out or an established part of the comedy community, like I am now. Seeing Pops and having a yarn between shows was one of the little things you looked forward to each festival.” Hamilton says Cherubin is important to the comedy scene because “you have a lot of egos vying for attention”. “If it wasn’t for people like Adrian, there would be no platform for all of us to show our talent, to get further in the industry or to make something exciting happen in our lives.” The Australian comedy community has always rallied around its own. In 2009, big names came together to raise money for Melbourne comedian Dave Grant, who had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After Grant’s death the following year, a second event featuring the likes of Rove McManus and Jimeoin financially supported his family. Years earlier, Lynda Gibson was the focus of a benefit show before the comedian lost her battle with breast cancer in 2004. In her honour, the

Cause célèbre Yo, Adrian! is not the only fund-raising event to have attracted high-profile names from the arts world. Here are five other recent events that have raised money for good causes. 1. Melbourne identities including Angie Hart, Dan Kelly and Alan Brough joined forces in February for GenFest, a ‘‘fun-raiser’’ for 3RRR presenter and musician Genevieve Blackmore, who lost her battle against breast cancer last week. It raised more than $10,000. 2. The music community rallied around legendary Sydney musician Peter Black, best known as the Hard-Ons’ guitarist Blackie, after he was bashed in May while working his day job as a taxi driver. Several benefit shows were held in Melbourne, including a gig at the Tote in June headlined by Regurgitator. 3. Thornbury cafe Miss Succulent was gutted by a fire in June, which also put its owners Ramona and Jez in hospital. Veteran punk-pop band Bodyjar, friends of the couple, headlined a benefit show at the Northcote Social Club last month, which raised more than $6000 to help the cafe reopen. 4. Earlier this month, a line-up of funny folk, including Jeff Green and Dave Callan, helped support the Black Dog Institute, which raises awareness of mood disorders. Money raised will help comedian Bev Killick’s son Abel complete the Peru Challenge on behalf of the institute next month. 5. Dave Hughes, Fiona O’Loughlin and Trevor Marmadale were among the big-name performers to donate their time and lend their support to St Kilda Park Primary School at an event at the National Theatre last month.

festival continues to award an annual cash prize, known as the Golden Gibbo, to an emerging act. Dave Thornton, who is on the Yo, Adrian! bill, says comedians invariably come out of the woodwork to help when somebody is in trouble. “Comedians are, on a whole, quite giving people who just demand the attention and laughter of others,” he says. There is no financial target for the event, but Lovett has been “blown away” by how quickly tickets have sold and says “we’ve raised beyond our wildest dreams already”. Several members of Cherubin’s family will attend, but Adrian will remain in the rehabilitation centre, where he has begun the long road to recovery. “When I first saw him after it happened, it was pretty confronting,” says Lovett. “But I saw him recently and the improvement was amazing.” Cherubin is unable to speak and is paralysed down the right-hand side of his body. His sister says that in the first few weeks after his stroke, just staying awake for any length of time was a good sign. “Over the past five months, he has progressed to being able to shave, brush his teeth and feed himself,” she says. “We celebrate each small advance towards meeting the goals set for him.” Lisa says the love and support the entire comedy community has shown will be a factor in his recovery. “We are unsure of the destination of the journey ahead, but Adrian knows he will be supported every step of the way.” ■

Yo, Adrian! will be at the Regent Theatre on Wednesday, September 26. Tickets available through Ticketmaster from $50. Donations can also be made towards Adrian’s rehabilitation. Details: visit comedyfestival.com.au.

Kooky’s Place The lowdown: A river view is one of the chief attractions of Kooky’s Place, a Malaysian/Chinese cafe in the orange strip of shops in Rebecca Walk, between the aquarium and the World Trade Centre. While most of the outlets in the strip are unfortunately shut, Kooky’s six indoor tables and five more outside are full of city professionals at lunch hour. The highpoint: Kooky, the mother of the young woman at the till, is from Macau but knows her way around Malaysian favourites like curry laksa, nasi lemak, mee goreng and roti canai – all around $10 – as well as Chinese staples such as wonton soup amid a surprisingly extensive menu. The X factor: Tucked away and not easy to spy is what make Kooky’s special.

Let there be light It’s rooms with a view at this stunning apartment

STEPHEN A RUSSELL PROPERTY WRITER

ne of the newer highlights of Melbourne’s city skyline, Kavanagh Street’s Triptych building is a vision in tinted rainbow glass. In the heart of Southbank, tucked behind the Arts Centre and only a short stroll from the Yarra River and Flinders Street Station, it couldn’t be more central, yet it retains a sense of calm. Renowned artist Robert Owen drew

O

inspiration from the cells of a leaf, as viewed under a microscope, when crafting the great steel gateway to the foyer. This striking design is mirrored in the glass walls of the elevator and the dark steel entrance to each apartment, with every doorway unique. Before you even get to number 1803, you’ll be blown away by the atrium or “vertical villages” that connect three floors at a time, picking up the triptych theme, so every apartment opens on to a light-filled communal space rather than a long, dark corridor. Step inside the residence and you’ll be bowled over by the stunning panorama through the walls of sheer glass beyond. Sustainable polished bamboo floorboards feature throughout. A small bedroom or study is on the left, with views of the Eureka gleaming ahead and a bank of built-in wardrobes to one side.

On the right, a short hall is flanked by a pale grey-coloured powder room and a spacious laundry opposite. The good-sized main bedroom with a sheer wall of glass at the far end looks over the roof of the National Gallery of Victoria, the sprawling green of the Royal Botanical Gardens and out to the Dandenong Ranges in the distance. There’s also Federation Square and the snaking bend of the Yarra through the geometric twist of the Arts Centre spire. Turn right for a view of Port Phillip Bay over the Melbourne Recital Centre. A third bedroom features the bed resting in a set-back alcove, with a tall, frosted glass window allowing dappled light to filter in. This room also has a wall of built-in wardrobes. However, it’s the vast, open-plan living space that really impresses, with two glass walls

coming to a point with a striking winter garden at its apex. There is a ridiculous amount of space on offer here, and head-spinning views wherever you look, with the entire city laid out before you. A great wall to the inner side of this living space is perfect for a mammoth flat screen tv, with a breakfast bar to the right. Follow it round to reveal the vast, pale stone workbench of the beautiful kitchen. There are plenty of soft-close cabinets, a huge Miele oven and sunken five-burner stovetop. A butler’s pantry leading off this space is bigger than most apartments’ kitchens. On level six, a Jamie Durie-designed communal terrace garden is a serene retreat, allowing access to a fully-equipped gym and cantilevered pool with a unique glass floor at one end which provides a thrilling tumble-turn over the streetscape far below. ■

Grand central Renovation guru Kevin McCloud is coming to Australia, writes Stephen A Russell

A

Southbank 1609/283 City Road

ďŹ rm before launching the tv series in 1999. “There is no greater obsessive about the series than me,â€? he says, laughing. “It takes up half my working life.â€? He’s looking forward to shedding some light on the making of the show, and some of his favourite projects across the years. He’s even formed a few close friendships thanks to Grand Designs though for the most part, he keeps his personal life separate. “I see my role a little bit like that of a counsellor. Through rather intimate questioning you do become rather acquainted with them, but ultimately they’re building a house and I’m making a program; the next day I’m off somewhere else. I can’t take too much baggage with me.â€? Maddison, a personal friend and practising architect, will take McCloud on a guided tour of Melbourne’s highlights while he’s here. “Australia has an open attitude towards construction and architecture,â€? says McCloud. People are willing and ready to take the plunge

and the economy is better. There’s a can-do attitude.â€? I ask if his own house is as stunning as the ones we see on the show, joking that he might be like a ďŹ ne dining food reviewer who goes home to eat cheese on toast. “I went out for lunch once with Gordon Ramsay and we went to a cafe and had beans on toast,â€? he laughs, revealing he lives in a 400-year old farmhouse. “In my deepest soul I am a building conservationist. I enormously enjoy modern buildings, which is why I love [Dutch architect] Rem Koolhaas, but in the end I’m drawn back to crumbling old ruins.â€? â– Grand Designs Live is at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, September 21-23. Details: visit granddesignslive.com.au. To win one of 10 double passes, email 25 words or less on what you’re most looking forward to at Grand Designs Live to competitions@stellar.net.au. Entries close 5pm on Friday, September 14.

rchitecture and interior design dorks will be foaming at the mouth when the high priest of renovations, Kevin McCloud, arrives in Melbourne for Grand Designs Live. The three-day event, inspired by the muchloved television series that screens in 145 countries, offers Melbourne design fanatics the chance to meet the man in person, his Australian counterpart Peter Maddison, and pick their brains about designing a dream home. The one thing the duo won’t be doing is erecting a building in the middle of the exhibition, a crazy feat they pulled off in the UK. “It was madness,â€? McCloud says. He’d much rather spend his time doling out ďŹ rst-hand advice to exhibition attendees. “I like walking around, meeting people and acting as a cheerleader and regimental mascot, really.â€? With almost 15 years of Grand Designs under his belt, McCloud started off as a theatre designer, hence his air for dramatic projects over the years. He went on to set up his own lighting design
