» The appliance Q: What’s more exciting than watching a kettle boil? A: Being able to see your toast turning golden brown, of course. The latest two-slice Vision toaster by Magimix lets you view the action through its wide, double-insulated glass front and rear windows. The elegant design, available in brushed stainless steel, black, red and cream, features an extra-wide toasting slot to fit bread of all shapes and sizes, a simultaneous toast-and-defrost function and a one-sided bagel-toasting operation. There’s a reheat function that actually works, eight-setting browning control, extra-lift lever and auto-stop button for perfect visual timing. The glass windows open to allow for thorough cleaning and the crumb tray catches most of the excess. It’s a little pricey for a two-slice toaster, but it does come with a three-year guarantee – and there’s no denying its visual appeal. » www.magimix.com.au » We’re giving away a Magimix Vision toaster, in brushed stainless steel, $499.

Tabberer (yes, she’s Maggie’s daughter) forged a career as a fashion stylist, working in Milan for Condé Nast and established her own line of designer wear, then worked in her Italian partner’s family restaurant in Positano. Her second book, Amalfi Coast Recipes, is a collection of favourites from many of the regional cooks and chefs she came to know. The recipes – which include fabulous pasta, seafood and risotto recipes, from spaghetti con pomodoro to le braciole con la pasta (stuffed involtini of beef with pasta) and rustic sweet treats such as crositata di castagna (shortbread chestnut tart) – credit each cook and feature the author’s lively tales, hints and tips.

During October, The Commoner in Fitzroy is running its Belicatessan event – a celebration of fine swine and cider. Owner Jo Corrigan says the restaurant, known for its modern British food, has created a calendar of cult movie-inspired themes to inject a “sense of fun” into the menu. There’s been Claws, Poultrygeist, Back to the Butcher, Whiskey Business and Planet of the Canapes. This month, chef Brook Petrie will create rare-breed pork dishes matched with fine wines and cider for the Belicatessan menu (inspired by 1991 French black comedy Delicatessen). Think ham-hock terrine spiced with parsley, capers and mustard seed, matched with Harcourt pear cider; spotted Tamworth pork shank cooked with orange zest, sage, cinnamon and masala with chorizo mash and matched with a 2011 Michelin Seven Oaks farmhouse cider and, to finish, the five-course menu features an upside-down apple and ginger cake served with Granny Smith cider sorbet. » www.thecommoner.com.au » We’re giving away tickets for two to The Commoner’s Belicatessan event, running during October. $120pp.

The gadgeT I wish I’d had this device when my children were younger. They are too old and too sugar savvy to be convinced that frozen fruit is better than ice-cream. So, as usual, I was the one who ended up eating the healthy option. But never mind, I loved Yonanas – a clever blending device that, using frozen bananas as its base, turns fruit into an ice-cream-style treat, without the sugar, fat or dairy components. Perfect for those with dairy intolerances, calorie counters and people who just love fruit, sans sugar. Add frozen mango and it becomes mango ice-cream, frozen raspberries for raspberry ice-cream. Recipe ideas include pumpkin pie, chocolate-cherry and peanut butter and jelly. The unit is easy to clean, although I did find the amount of leftover fruit caught around the blades messy and a little wasteful. » www.yonanas.com.au » We’re giving away a Yonanas unit, $79.95.

T

he burning question this week is, since when did Melbourne become a third-fiddle food city, after Sydney and Brisbane? It’s a question raised by the belated arrival Yarra-side of Shaun Presland’s mod-Japanese franchise Saké, which debuted in Sydney in 2009, then branched out to Brisbane and, about a month ago, finally opened its doors at the revamped Hamer Hall. Presland is a seriously good chef, a sushi master and devotee of Japanese culture who distinguished himself in Sydney by creating the harbour city’s finest raw bar at Sushi-e in The Establishment Hotel. He then did a stint at Nobu in The Bahamas (how nice) before signing on as executive chef at Saké and rolling out the concept along the eastern seaboard. There’s more than a hint of Nobu here at Saké Melbourne, from the chorused “Irasshaimase!” on entry to déjà vu menu dishes such as kingfish jalapeño (cf. Nobu’s yellowtail), sashimi tacos and beef tataki with garlic chips. But even while Saké can sometimes feel like Nobu Melbourne Mark II, I much prefer the space here than the one down the river at the casino. Set over two floors riverside at the concert hall, Saké’s sharp lines of polished concrete and glossy timbers are softened by cut orchids, kitchen shelving stacked with warm ceramics and a sculptural cherry tree festooned with bud-light blossoms. We take our seats inside a slatted, izakaya-style booth, which is lower lit and more convivial than the tables on centre stage. From here we can’t see the tops of the CBD skyscrapers across the river, just a wall of glittering lights. It’s quite striking. Another Nobu alumnus, Singaporean Rose Ang, is

running the kitchen while Presland oversees the empire and she obviously shares his passion for precision in taste and plating. Even a simple bowl of edamame is a study in the freshest, greenest soybean pods, lightly dusted with sea salt. They’re followed smartly by a sashimi of kingfish lightly cured in yuzu (citrus) soy, with the kick of jalapeño and the zing of coriander. It’s mouth-jinglingly good, but soon eclipsed by a plate of white soy snapper. The diaphanous, pink-edged fish flesh is seasoned with yuzu and white soy, nutty sesame seeds and chopped chives, and there’s shredded daikon on top. With the exception of the daikon, which for me always has a slight smelly-sock aroma, each ingredient shines through bright and true. This is almost faultless fish. Tonkatsu pork is a weak link in the line-up. Four nuggets of panko-crusted pork belly and spring onion sit in lettuce cups smeared with mustard miso and barbecue sauce. The minced pork texture is pappy and the sauces seem cloying after our elegant starters. Grainfed wagyu teriyaki has a marble score of 7+ (I’m sure this means something to someone) but, more importantly, arrives lightly seared at the edges and shiny with sweet soy marinade. A bed of buckwheat, shiitake and soybeans amps up the savoury scale and does pleasant things texture-wise too. As with all the dishes, it comes on a beautiful glazed earthenware plate – like something out of Eltham circa 1975, when the hippies were at the height of their pottery powers. There are more melting moments with the popcorn shrimp, a cute concept (again imported from Nobu) of prawn pieces delicately battered and then smothered in “creamy spicy dressing”, and in the salt-and-pepper

The Saké kitchen: From within, there's a passion for precision. (DARRiAN TRAYNoR)

Online wine

Ben Thomas goes French. + Weekly wine selections.

Moreton Bay bug tails with bitey yuzu mayo. It’s great drinking food, and Saké does an excellent line in drinks. The booze list features top-shelf spirits (hello Patrón Añejo) and a comforting selection of decent, mostly Australian wines. There’s even a saké sommelier who proves blindingly knowledgeable about the rice wine selection. When we ask about a baked apple and pear-scented drop called Yuho junmai, he launches into a comprehensive report on its provenance. Yuho is a “beautiful little brewery” on the north-west coast, about four hours by train from Tokyo (the slow train, not the bullet train, he clarifies). And the toji or master brewer is a woman – one of only a handful in Japan – so the style is very floral and delicate. “So yeah, that’s a beautiful one to start with.” He’s like the Rain Man of saké. If only all the staff were as sharp. The Sydney restaurant has had a hat since opening and it’s possible, if the service here shapes up to match the polish of the food and the setting, that Saké Melbourne could earn one too. Not that giving out hats is any of my business. Just saying. Meanwhile, for sweets we pick something called bubblemilk tea, a bland muddle of tapioca, Chantilly cream and pistachio crumbs that will do nothing to dissuade Western palates that Japanese desserts, even contemporary ones, can be a bit average. You might be better off summoning Saké Guy for another shot of seishu. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au tO read mOre reviews

interview \ PETER WILMOTH MEETs MIcHaEL MORI

W

ith his quirky, self-deprecating sense of humor, love of sport and easygoing nature Michael Mori – or Dan to his friends and family – will fit very nicely into his new

home, Melbourne. We’re in the Lonsdale Street offices of Shine Lawyers, where he began work in July. Mori is getting used to Melbourne and, as we speak, takes calls about viewing houses he might rent. We’re talking about his three young sons and the fact that he’s 46. “Started late in life,” he says, smiling. “Forty-six. Do I look that old? Mentally I’m about 14.” Mori has squeezed a lot into those 46 years. This month he officially finishes a 28-year career with the US Marine Corps, including roles as a prosecutor and defence counsel, a military judge and, famously, for 3½ years the legal representative for one-time Australian Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks. Representing Hicks was a role that gave Mori an international profile, infuriated some in the military for Mori’s criticisms of the process, landed him on Enough Rope with Andrew Denton and now finds him working as a civilian lawyer in the social justice department of the plaintiff law firm Shine (you might have seen Shine’s TV ads featuring Erin Brockovich, a strategic adviser for the firm). Mori first visited Australia in 1988 on a rugby tour when he was at uni in the US, playing in Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns. Years later he’d come to Melbourne when he was representing Hicks. “I got a lot of help from Tim McCormack (a law professor) at Melbourne University,” he says. “They had sent a student over to assist, Sarah Finnin.” He found a strong connection with Victorian lawyers. “The legal community in Victoria was the first to sort of want to get more information. The bar and the Law Council. A lot of the change in perception and that desire to hear more began in the legal community here in Victoria. “I met a lot of lawyers and it really struck me that there was a sense of camaraderie that I really liked. So I thought if some day I could get my licence and be part of it, I’d be really happy. “One of my friends put me in touch with one of the managing partners for Shine, Simon Morrison. I’d met him during the Hicks case when I was over here when he was president of the Australian Lawyers Alliance. Shine was starting a social justice department. (He asked) did I want to be involved with that? It all happened really quickly.” Dan Mori grew up outside Boston, Massachussettss in New England. “We walked to school. There were forests and stuff to explore.” At uni in Ohio he hadn’t starred. “I’d played football, spent a lot of time with sports and socialising and probably not enough at the books, so I probably had not done well. I don’t think I was ready for it. So I came home one night on the Christmas break and enlisted in the Marine Corps and went off to boot camp,

12 The weekly review \ OCTOBER 17, 2012

21st December.” It was 1983, and Mori was 18. Why was he attracted to that world of discipline? “I just wanted drastic change in my life,” he says. “I went into all the different recruiters. The Marines were more than happy to get me signed up within a week.” The Marine Corps has a reputation as a hard life. Did it make him tough? “I don’t know. It certainly gives you some level of confidence, putting you through different physical challenges.” Did he find meeting those challenges satisfying? “I had a great time, I really enjoyed it, it brought me to rugby union. It was definitely something I needed. I needed to grow up, and it gave me those four years to mature. Work experience gave me exposure to creative leaders and (the values) of the Marine Corps.” After four years in the Marine Corps, he took reserve status and went back to uni and did the officer’s program. “And then I kind of accidentally became a lawyer.” Mori was posted to South Carolina, Japan and then Hawaii, where he was head prosecutor for the Marine base at Pearl Harbor. One day he received a fateful email. “Some email came around to all the head lawyers saying they were looking for someone to be on the defence office for the commissions,” he says. His name was submitted as a defence counsel. His first task in January 2004 was to represent a young Australian detainee at Guantanamo Bay, who faced charges of conspiracy to commit war crimes and a range of others. What was Mori’s first impression of David Hicks? “He struck me as just an Aussie.” A lost kid maybe? Long pause. Mori is clearly uncomfortable revealing much at all about his one-time famous client. “Let’s go onto another question.” The case quickly became political and placed Mori in the international spotlight. “If you go back to that time, January ’04, not many people had spoken against what was going on with the commissions,” he says. “I didn’t make this case a media case or a political case, it already was that. You’ve got the president of the United States and the prime minister of Australia and ministers commenting about a case in the media. “I had to make a decision about whether or not to respond publicly about the system. And I think it was hypocricies in the system that really bothered me, whether it was David or any other Australian, the fact that there was a system that was not acceptable for Americans to be tried in, it wasn’t acceptable for British to be tried in, but somehow this second-rate system was OK for an Australian. That bothered me.”

“People weren’t happy that someone in uniform was speaking against what was being done.”

Michael Mori representing David Hicks: Speaking to the press in 2004. (Rebecca HallaS)

By voicing his disapproval of the processes by which detainees were dealt with legally at Guantanamo Bay, Mori had a lot of pressure placed on him. “It was just the job,” he says. Mori articulated what many around the world, including Hicks’ supporters in Australia, were thinking. “And it was accurate,” he says. “That was the thing.” In 2007, Mori was threatened with court martial by then chief prosecutor at Guantanamo for speaking out on Hicks. Did Mori feel pressure himself to shut down his views? Did anyone tell you to pull his head in? Long pause. “People weren’t happy that someone in uniform was speaking against what was being done.” How did it affect him personally? “The whole process was a stressful (time) … Some would say ‘Hey, one case, 3½ years, great, how easy!’ But it was a system that had never been used before, that had been resurrected from World War II. The rules were always changing. “It was created and controlled by the people who had the power. It wasn’t a real system. They weren’t using the real court martial system, they weren’t using the federal court. Every time you tried to prepare the case they would just change the system or change the rules. So it was very frustrating on that (level). It was like everybody else was in on this joke except for me, that everybody else was in on creating this sort of rigged system and we were just supposed to play our part and be the defence counsel, argue in court and go down gracefully.”

B

ut something in Mori made him choose not to cop that. “It was the hypocrisy. Seeing people being treated unfairly. I’d said through the whole process ‘Give us a court martial, give us a real court system’ but they couldn’t do that because they had to guarantee convictions. “There were so many people involved with the creation of everything and the inertia was such that there was one outcome needed, and that was to convict people and then everything that had been done in the past would be justified.” Then US president George Bush famously described then Australian prime minster John Howard as the “man of steel”. The pair shared a good, strong relationship. How much did that help Hicks? “I don’t know,” Mori says. “They never rang me and asked me my opinion.” (Laughs.) When Hicks finally departed Guantanamo Bay, how did Mori feel? “Relief.” Was it an emotional farewell? “It was surreal. The whole experience was surreal. I wouldn’t believe he’d be gone until he was actually there, do you know what I mean? I was expecting something to put a wrench in it.” Did he say thanks for all your help? “We had a lot of time together. I don’t want to put words … David has chosen to keep his life private and I respect that.” In July, the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions withdrew its action to recover the proceeds of Hicks’ memoir Guantanamo: My Journey. “Well he should be able to make the money,” Mori

HOLDinG


says. “It’s his book ... He went through it. The decision not to go forward (in pursuing Hicks over the royalties) shows that it wasn’t a valid conviction.” I asked Mori if he stayed in touch with Hicks. “I stay in touch with him since I met him and I hope to stay in touch with him for the rest of his life or mine, whichever ends first.” Mori has always nurtured a dream of moving to Australia and would like to settle here. “I don’t think I’ll ever lose my connection with the US.” Melbourne was an easy choice, he says. “Starting in Australia you go into one of the big cities, either Sydney or Melbourne, and Melbourne was definitely an easier fit, especially with kids, with transportation, good places to eat everywhere.” He’s enjoying his new life here. “In a way I see it as an overseas tour, like the military, but obviously I’m hoping that this blossoms and I get my residency.” He’s happy to be at Shine. “That’s the great thing about social justice. It can be anything from consumer protection, landlord and tenant, to – obviously I have a strong affiliation with the military – so making sure service members are being treated appropriately. “That’s what attracted me to Shine – their values are standing up for the little guy. I think the creation of a social justice department shows they’re putting their money where their mouth is.” His three young boys are settling in well at school, although the language nuances are presenting some challenges. “They come home and say ‘Daddy, everyone keeps saying to me ‘G’day mate’ and ‘Sorry mate’.” He tries to stay fit and loves sport but knows his days playing rugby are over. “Rugby union is big in the military. It’s a team sport, needs physical conditioning, cheap to outfit. Almost every base would have a rugby team. “It was cool playing rugby into my 30s but now my joints are telling me it wasn’t so cool.” The only snag in moving to Melbourne is that his mother isn’t thrilled her son has moved so far away (his father died in 2000). “Not very happy,” he says of his mother’s reaction. “Too far for grandma to come and visit. But you know it’s just a longer flight.” \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au we weLCOme yOUR feeDbaCk @ www.theweeklyreview.com.au/interview

rom its first performance in 1904, the appeal of J.M. Barrie’s unsettling Edwardian story Peter Pan – “the boy who wouldn’t grow up” – was intergenerational. Children relished its spectacle, while adults enjoyed the story as a parable of lost youth. As part of the Melbourne Festival, the Malthouse Theatre is hosting an international work that goes one step further. Before Your Very Eyes is a unique theatre work that employs seven children, aged eight to 14, to explore the experience of growing up and the harsh reality it often brings. In just over an hour, we observe the children graduate from childhood to adolescence, from watching cartoons to smoking cigarettes and stuffing bras. After quickly becoming adults, they fast forward to middle age where they reflect on their past desires and their failed expectations. Before Your Very Eyes is a combined production from the Belgian theatre group Campo and the German/ British collective Gob Squad. It is Campo’s third and final piece in a series of productions created for adults, which uses children to cast light on the adult world. Campo artistic director Kristof Blom explains that, from the moment they started working with children more than a decade ago, they were continually surprised and intrigued. “We initially began the process by combining professional dancers and professional actors with children,” says Blom. “Every time we were surprised by their spontaneity. They had this amazing energy in the rehearsals room, and so it led to the idea of ‘what if we created theatre only working with children’?” The first piece in the trilogy was Josse De Pauw’s üBUNG – German for exercise – which appeared at the Melbourne Festival in 2004. Described by critics as “utterly chilling”, the children imitated grown-ups by skilfully synchronising dialogue to a silent black-and-white film depicting the scene of an adult dinner party. For their second production, Campo approached Tim

Second chances abound in this quirky American rom-com. A disillusioned journo and his two interns investigate a curious ad seeking companionship for a time-travelling mission, only to become distracted by their own histories. Journo Jeff (Jake M. Johnson) is looking to relive a youthful romance, while intern Darius (Aubrey Plaza) wants to make contact with her long-dead mother. Small-town weirdo Kenneth (Mark Duplass) offers Darius a chance to do just that, as he’s been secretly building a time machine in his wood shed. Or has he? Those looking for a time-travel adventure might be disappointed, as the sci-fi premise takes a back seat to character drama. In the end, it doesn’t matter whether Kenneth is telling the truth. The time travel exists as a hypothetical element to his friendship with Darius – the sort of late-night, end-of-a-party bonding where conversations edge towards the fantastical. Plaza is an engaging, deadpan protagonist. Admittedly, she’s on familiar ground, recreating the same sullen persona that works well on Parks and Recreation. Despite a potentially icky age gap, there’s a real chemistry with Duplass, whose pudgy, hound-dog appearance ensures his bonkers character is more endearing than unsettling. Short, sweet and strange, Safety Not Guaranteed transcends its silly premise to tell a truthful, if uncommon, love story. \

IN ANOTHER LIFE \ Catherine Traicos (An Ocean Awaits) » www.catherinetraicos.com Some albums are made for Sunday mornings. Cold, clear sunlight in the windows, strong coffee on the counter and, perhaps, a vague sense of regret. The latest album from Sydney-based songwriter Catherine Traicos evokes all of these things. Indeed, the title track’s delicate, sweet-and-sour melody recalls something of the Velvet Underground’s paean to Sundays. Perhaps fittingly, there’s more than a hint of Nico (by way of Cat Power’s Chan Marshall) to Traicos’ controlled, husky vocals. It’s a voice that sounds The same carefully worn down, although still capable of sullen chiming high, clean notes. persona Production by Nick Huggins has brought works well a new brightness to Traicos’ often-languid songwriting. There’s a pop shimmer to songs such as Waking Up Your House Again, but the record’s heart still belongs to country. The 11 tracks here sketch ragged sepia portraits of lovelorn characters clinging to a last glimmer of hope. As with that Sunday morning hangover, we know there’s a good chance that things will get better soon. \

blu-ray E.T. \ The Extra-Terrestrial Anniversary Edition (Universal) » www.facebook.com/E.T.Movie Looking back can be a dangerous business. Much-loved childhood relics tend to look a bit dusty and crass in the cold light of adulthood. For every Labyrinth there’s a Dark Crystal; for every gremlin, an ewok. I was five when E.T. was first released – just the right age to go looking for my own aliens in the backyard. As a 35-year-old, I was touched more by the film’s evocation of loss than its sense of adventure. To be frank, I cried buckets. Being a Spielberg film, E.T. undeniably veers towards the sentimental. And, sadly, many of its key lines have

become so enshrined in popular culture that it’s easy to greet them with a smirk. Yet this is a film that strips away three decades’ worth of cynicism. To an adult, its real power lies in its depiction of the transitory nature of childhood. The cuddly extraterrestrial represents every lost friend or pet. His apparent death recalls the first, sharp shocks of a child confronting mortality, while his eventual, inevitable departure evokes countless farewells in front rooms and departure lounges. This 30th-anniversary version, mercifully, has nothing of the CGI frippery that marred the initial DVD release. Even without rose-tinted lenses, it looks better than ever and remains a high-water mark for 1980s family cinema. \

Its three acts tell tall tales of tragedy, thwarted love, heroism and, presumably, half-human monsters. Innovative staging, unusual costumes and the group’s reputation for subversiveness suggest this will be a wild night of high drama. \

“I was the girl in red shoes,” she says, laughing. “I loved tap dancing, and I was very much into what the men were doing in the old movies. I liked imaginative, theatrical performances.” When van Dijk was 15, her jazz teacher invited a professional dancer from Paris to perform for the class. Reflecting on her lightbulb moment, she says being so close to the dancer for first time, she understood the intricacy and complicated nature of the art form. “I had never seen the range of movement, the energy, the risks and guts that professional dancers have, and it was very impressive,” she says. “I remember going home to my mum and saying, ‘I want to be a dancer’, and my mum was very dry and humorous and said, ‘well let me call up the schools and see if you’re not too old’.” This experience of an intensely felt physicality is what van Dijk hopes to be able to convey to her audience in An Act of Now. Heralded as a highlight of the Melbourne Festival, the performance will be staged at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl; audaciously, the audience will be seated on the stage. “The site itself is quite monumental,” she says. “I wanted the audience to experience what that space is in a very different way to going and seeing a show, or listening to music, or having a barbecue.” The stage will house a gigantic glasshouse, and will force the audience to explore ideas of space, real and psychological. With dancers twisting, spinning and moving into one complicated position after another, they will be forced to confront the relationship between freedom and confinement. “I decided to take it less specifically about a culture and more about human dynamics,” says van Dijk. “Because I wanted my first work here to move in my particular movement styles, so the audience gets a flavour of what my physicality is all about.” \ fcarter@theweeklyreview.com.au » Chunky Move’s An Act Of Now is on October 18-27 8pm.

which is sort of a Japanese expressionist dance form,” says van Dijk. “And what I began to notice was that none of these forms could give me the right tools and information to really work with my body and get a good sense of balance and control.” Taking parts from each dance style, van Dijk focused on gaining a greater freedom of movement, and rejecting the dominant opinion in the dance world that all movement relates to one centre in the body. In contrast, the dancers always keep their alignment and balance by giving each direction a counter direction – so if a foot goes downwards the head goes up. “What happens in Countertechnique is that when you do those two directions at same time you get more space in your body, and the space helps you to find your balance in a very practical way,” says van Dijk. “It creates a very big range of physicality which allows dancers to change direction at the most unexpected moments, and that’s really one of the things that is unique to my style of movement.” If done successfully, van Dijk says the technique can have profound consequences for a dancer’s health; they are able to gain a greater speed and manoeuvrability, and a wider range of choice, while exerting less energy. “By being open to explore one’s change of direction, it allows the performers to go to places where they could never otherwise go,” van Dijk says. “They get to a much bigger extremity in their movements without actually pushing it, but rather allowing things to happen and then dealing with the consequences of it. “And that’s what I really like, seeing dancers deal the issue of solving a problem, literally, physically, by thinking, ‘OK if my centre is there, am I going to fall off?’ And just to see them negate that in their minds, with that dialogue, I find very exciting.” As a little girl, van Dijk loved tap dancing. Every Sunday morning she would watch her heroes on television – Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, the Nicholas Brothers – and was entranced by their skill and talent.

t’s always the quiet ones you have to watch. While the five big networks plough an increasingly narrow furrow and digital stations settle into niches, Melbourne’s Channel 31 continues to experiment with shows of every shape and size. Unfortunately, we rarely hear anything about them. Station manager Richard McLelland says it’s about time the station got the recognition it deserved. Over the past 18 years, C31 has been a springboard for new media talent. Shows such as The Voice might give the illusion of opening the door to wannabe stars, but C31 lays out the red carpet. Anyone with a good idea and a bit of technical expertise can get their show on air. Past alumni include Rove McManus, Hamish and Andy and Fox FM’s Jo Stanley. “I don’t think we get enough credit,” McLelland says. “If we weren’t here, how would those budding program makers and entertainers get an opportunity to hone their craft?” For the most part, the station relies on word of mouth to win audiences, as there’s no room in its budget for publicity. After all, the broadcaster receives no government funding, relying instead on attracting small business advertisers. However, despite its tiny wallet, the station broadcasts new episodes of more than 100 different programs each week. During the winter season, 15 new shows were added to the schedule. “That’s an indicator we’re successfully engaging with our community,” McLelland says. “We hold ‘Make TV’


nights three or four times a year, and we always get people turning up.” One standout from the new crop was game show 31 Questions, hosted by comedian David M. Green. It’s an excellent example of what C31 does best – an entertaining blend of the professional and the homespun, with enough talent and passion to distract from bargain-basement production values. As host, Green is engaging and charismatic. It isn’t hard to imagine him crossing to a commercial network. As with most Channel 31 productions, 31 Questions, which last month ended its first season, was funded by its star. Friends and student volunteers took part as contestants, while Green sometimes dragged audiences off the streets just before taping. But the show made a virtue of cheapness, awarding handmade prizes featuring a publicity still of the host. Green says it was a deliberate choice to leave a few rough edges showing. “You don’t see too many mistakes on TV these days, but in our show, we left a lot of the mistakes in, admittedly because we had no other footage to use. That’s something I miss about modern TV, because a lot of the time the bloopers are actually funnier than what’s in the rest of the program.” This roughness means the show was unlikely to have found a home anywhere else. But Green still hopes its run on C31 might woo a larger network. “That was always part of the plan. I’d love to do what we’ve already done, except get paid for it. I’m happy to sell out. I always have been.” If the show does make the jump from handmade to prime time, it won’t be the first to do so. Some of C31’s big hitters were snatched up by the ABC. One was Melbourne sitcom twentysomething. Writer and star Jess Harris filmed the original version in her spare time, using home video equipment and some supportive friends. If not for C31’s open-door policy, she says, the show would never have reached the screen once, let alone twice.

“I knew what I wanted to do but, because I hadn’t gone to uni and studied, I felt like I didn’t have the skills to get into it. It’s hard to try to sell yourself when you haven’t had a chance to do it yet. It feels a very hard industry to crack, because there’s not a set path, like other jobs.” For Lee Zachariah, one half of film program The Bazura Project (also remade for ABC2), C31 not only provided a launch pad but also offered a degree of artistic freedom he wouldn’t have found elsewhere. “They would only call us when we’d vilified a certain race or religion,” Zachariah says, jokingly. “But then going to the ABC, you’re aware there’s going to have to be some compromise. “Because this was our first proper gig, we kind of felt like we had to take every decision they made and

implement it, even if it was, maybe, to the detriment of the show.” McLelland says the only interference from C31 tends to regard quality control. “We do expect a level of competency in filmmaking skill but there’s no restriction for topic or the subject matter. We have to fight the perception that Channel 31 is filled with pretty poor-quality content. Quality goes to attracting an audience and everyone knows that the environment in which we sit is becoming increasingly competitive.” McLelland identifies the proliferation of digital channels as presenting a challenge to viewing figures, but points out that the station’s programs often rate higher than similar shows on digital or terrestrial networks. Indeed, Zachariah says his stint on C31 did more for his profile than all the buzz that accompanied six weeks on the ABC. Based on the final figures, the original version of The Bazura Project frequently won more viewers in Melbourne alone than the remake won nationally. There’s hope, it seems, for the quiet approach. But even strong viewing figures might not be enough to keep C31 on our screens. The federal government is in the process of reallocating broadcasting frequencies. C31 will need to vacate its current slot by 2014, but there’s no word yet where it might end up. Certainly, the airwaves would be far less interesting without it – even for viewers who rarely stray from the big five. New talent needs to arrive from somewhere. As Zachariah says, “I don’t think I’d be doing this if it wasn’t for 31.” Harris agrees. “We were so grateful they were there. It was the first time I’d ever finished something, and to have it on air really validated it. I was just as proud of that, on Channel 31, as I was when it was on the ABC.” \ mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.c31.org.au

Australian release in early 2011 and died in New York. Food: London-based, Israel-born chef Yotam Ottolenghi’s venture into the publishing world has been an international success story. His three cookbook,s including his most recent title, Jerusalem (written with partner Sami Tamimi), are hits with local cooks who love the vegetable-dominated, fresh and flavour-packed Ottolenghi style.

Other honourable mentions

Business: Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography by Walter Isaacson, the unexpected big seller of last Christmas.

History: The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance by Edmund De Waal. Art, family memoir and history come together in a beautifully crafted book. Sport: The Master, Les Carlyon’s superb 2011 biography of Bart Cummings, takes readers to the heart of Australia’s horseracing industry and the passion that fuels it. Politics: After Words by former PM Paul Keating. Popular with readers on either side of the political fence. Science: A 2008 bestseller, The Brain That Changes Itself, by Norman Doidge, remains our most-requested science title. Gardening: The Little Veggie Patch Co: How to Grow Food in Small Spaces by Elwood nurserymen Fabian Capomolla and Mat Pember. Interiors: The Selby is in Your Place by Todd Selby and Lesley Arfin. (Watch out for Selby’s new title next month).

Fashion: We’ve only sold a couple of copies, but the $150 slip-case edition of Prada, by Miuccia Prada, reminds us that a beautifully designed book is also a work of art that no Kindle can re-create. Wine: James Halliday’s annual wine companions (the 2013 edition is out now). Humour: Sexually, I’m More of a Switzerland, David Rose’s collection of the best of the London Review of Books’ lonely hearts/personal ads. Teens: Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games series. Kids: Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, The New York Times’ 2009 best-selling author. Babies: Our customers’ ongoing love affair with The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson continues to amaze us. \ cperkin@theweeklyreview.com.au

class acts \ CHERYL CRITCHLEY MEETS bEn pETTIngILL My first sport was … basketball in prep. I also played cricket and footy and loved water-skiing. I was involved in lots of sport, as well as fishing, until I lost my eyesight in March 2011. I have a disease called Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, so I lost my right eyesight first, over a few months, and then my left eyesight went overnight. I can now only see some shapes and hand movements if they’re within a metre from me, but I’m legally blind. I now play … I still water ski. I wear a helmet with a microphone connected to the driver. I’m going on a camp later in the year when it gets warmer. I swim competitively with DVE Aquatic. I hope to get to state and national level competition. I also go to Special Olympics Richmond to train and I’m keeping my eye (so to speak!) on the Paralympics in Rio in 2016.

Ben Pettingill School \ Plenty Valley Christian College, Doreen

Year \ 11

Australia’s best sportsperson \ There are so many, but one is Geoff Huegill. He came out of retirement and trained hard to win gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in the 100 metres butterfly.

Should male and female sports stars get equal pay? People should be paid according to how many people watch them and how much I want sponsorship they can get. It has nothing to do to swim with whether they’re male or female. at the Rio

Paralympics

Would you represent Australia for nothing? Yes. Because I love my country and it would be a proud moment and a great opportunity.

Sporting highlight so far \ Two national basketball championships with school through Christian Schools National … in year 8 and 9. We won both.

Would you rather be an Olympian or prime minister? Olympian, because it would be doing something I love. I would just go out and make people proud.

Sporting goal \ Rio Paralympics 50 and 100 metres freestyle and breaststroke.

Which sports star would make the best PM? Ricky Ponting. He’s a good role model, always positive, even in defeat, and he’s a great leader.

When not playing sport I’m … hunting rabbits with my two kelpie dogs. My secret vice is … Australian 1980s rock music. (supplied)

Title \ Coach to the PVCC Girls Senior Basketball Team. I’m also assistant coach to Diamond Valley. Eagles under 18s basketball team.

My main responsibilities as sports captain are … to keep the teams motivated and always positive and having fun, as well as skills training.

How I’d get kids off iPods and into sport \ Tell them how lucky they are to be able bodied and healthy and they shouldn’t waste it.

How I’d spend $1 million to make the world a better place \ In 2011 I went on a Mission Trip with school to Darwin. I could still see enough to realise how badly off some people are, so if I had $1 million I’d spend the money in Australia as well as places like Thailand to ensure communities had enough food and clean water. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

\ RACHEL BERGER

HAS A TASTE FOR CHEESE STICKS

(eddie morton)

othing confronts me more with the reptilian part of my brain than traffic. Negotiating my way through traffic requires the same skills of compromise and tolerance as any relationship in a confined space with no exits. It makes me want to throw up. I have no control over other drivers’ behaviour. If the driver ahead of me indicates that she’s turning right, but low oestrogen levels and her dead granny’s voice in her head command that she turns left, what can I do? Brake abruptly, lock my wheels, go into a rear-end skid and ram right up her backside. Seize the day but make sure you’ve got comprehensive insurance cover. Melbourne is a vast, spread-out metropolis with suburbs sprouting far beyond what was once considered impenetrable scrub. We’re constantly in traffic. Twice a day, every day, roads and highways drain the traffic into and out of the city. And we love our cars; some of us are obsessed by them. I’ve stepped into home garages where the car tools and accessories were organised so as to evoke an almost sacred atmosphere. It follows then, that the number of cars on our roads and the distances we need to drive demand we have great roads, indeed sensational roads, so people like me, who panic in traffic, don’t arrive at their destination looking and feeling like they just broke the terms of their probation. In 1999, in a frenzy of privatisation and controversy, the Victorian government opened sections of CityLink, Melbourne’s first tollway. This mammoth project, eight times bigger than any attempted before, was the love

The road combined newly built and existing sections of freeway to link Tullamarine airport to the CBD.

Now drivers needed to get more bang for their buck because they were being charged to travel on this section of freeway. And tourists arriving for the first time needed to sense the boldness, culture and progress of the city they were entering. The precision of the single yellow and 39 red monoliths that are officially titled Melbourne Gateway (this is the point where a visitor travelling from the airport reaches the north of CBD), affectionately called the Cheese Stick by Melburnians, reminds me of a band of marching girls extending their batons. In perfect formation and bold colour they herald my return home. This structure was designed by Denton Corker Marshall architects and symbolises the impact of Victoria’s gold rush. The huge 70-metre yellow stick that hangs at a devious angle over the road was stupidly determined early on by a cabal of paranoid artsy-smarty types to resemble a fascist salute! I reckon it’s a dynamic, clean structure that diverts my attention from that driver whose car is a collection of petty aggravations on wheels: bumper stickers screaming “bad girl” and an indicator that’s been blinking for two kilometres without making a turn. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com

Ellipsoidal Freeway Sculpture

EastLink northbound between Wellington & Ferntree Gully roads

This three-dimensional sculpture offers a different view depending on a driver’s position, with the shapes appearing to expand and contract. They resemble giant Tic Tacs randomly thrown from an even bigger car. Indeed, this eye-candy is as good for a driver’s focus as a sack of complex carbohydrates. Assembled from ellipsoids to form a chain, it’s cast in fibreglass modules that vary in size and shape. Creator James Angus said he drew on sources, “including the history of perspective, modernist abstraction, aerodynamics and molecular chemistry”. \

Reverent Numbers

Boy Looking Up

The freeways that take us to Melbourne’s furthest suburbs also offer drive-through sculpture. Here, Jos Van Hulsen has transformed discarded distance counters from the Victorian Railways into towers that become memorials to statistics of distance and casualties. If you get in close you’ll be jolted out of everyday complacency as you become aware that your own image is reflected in the mirrors embedded in the towers. In a culture where numbers have ceased to have meaning, Reverent Numbers reminds that we’re all vulnerable to becoming just another statistic. It’s a potent piece of art that connects us to the human tragedies that we so easily forget. \

Matt Calvert’s sculpture Boy Looking Up is created from steel plate and stands 3.2 metres high and 4.5 metres long. Its unpretentious simplicity is unique when compared to other freeway artworks that jump out and strike a bold pose. I’d hazard a guess that this boy conjures up a different memory or emotion for everyone who drives past. For me, having lived on a farm for a few years, I’m reminded of the way city folk forget to look up at the sky. What for? There’s nothing there to purchase. In the bush, the sky is the harbinger of the most critical information – the weather, because the weather determines everything. \

A FORBIDDEN LOVE

\ 33 CASTLE STREET, EAGLEMONT, 3084

S

ociety certainly was different back in 1896 when Awaba was built on this Eaglemont hillside. Shipping merchant Edmund E. Smith named his property after his lover, a young woman from New Guinea he would have met on one of his many adventures on the high seas. Smith could not be with Awaba – society wouldn’t allow it. So he lived in the house he built in her honour as a bachelor, throwing lavish parties for Melbourne’s elite in the grand ballroom. There is, however, something quite ironic, not to mention rebellious, in naming the house after the woman his guests would never have approved of. This tale is just one of the many intrigues of Awaba, a house as steeped in history as it is in beauty. Although unmarried, Smith did not live at Awaba alone. Not unlike the popular period drama Downton Abbey, servants lived downstairs in their own quarters. They would wait, hand and foot, on Smith’s guests as they gambled in the two card rooms, gossiped in the lounge or danced the night away beneath the soaring 5.5-metre ceilings in the ballroom. Good service and fine hospitality were still order of the day in 1913 when the house was bought by the Hon. Frederick Hagelthorn MLA, the state minister for agriculture. Times have changed and society has evolved. The servants’ quarters have since been converted into what is essentially a two-bedroom self-contained unit with kitchen, living room, bathroom and separate toilet. It would be the ideal base for teenagers or live-in relatives. Down here, there is also a good-sized cellar, workshop and a four-car garage, which was added by the current owners. The property’s old coach house is now a neighbour’s residence at No. 39 Castle Street. What hasn’t changed much in this property’s 116-year history is the architectural detail that makes this property such a local treasure. Awaba is one of the most significant and intact Queen Anne residences in the Heidelberg area. In the late 19th century it was fashionable to mimic Elizabethan and Jacobean architecture and incorporate hints of this English renaissance style into domestic designs. Here, there are ample examples of this, including the pair of chimneys that are diagonally set at the base, the deep eaves

reinforced by triangular beams, and panel after panel of intricately detailed Jacobean-style stained glass. The most impressive windows are those beneath the central gable. Inside, they crown the raised stage area where the band would have played for Smith’s guests. It is currently home to a grand piano. The house also has flourishes of what, back in 1896, would have been contemporary design. Take the highly decorative, arched fretwork on the front verandah or the curved art nouveau inglenook fireplace, complete with circular windows, in the ballroom. It is clear that Smith spared no expense on quality or style. The roof is clad in Marseilles-pattern terracotta tiles and the floors are either 2.5 cm-thick oregon boards or tessellated tiles. Even the internal walls are brick and 30 cm thick. It is comforting to see that subsequent owners have stayed true to Smith’s original vision. The card rooms have been converted into accommodation but retain a rich and luxurious aesthetic. Elegant drapes frame french windows, suede-like fabrics adorn the walls, and the cornices and ceiling roses have been delicately painted like frescoes in an Italian church. The current owners re-did the family hub at the rear of the floor plan in a highly sympathetic style. The kitchen is French provincial in style with white country-look cabinets, timber benches and European appliances. The family room, while less formal than the front rooms, is elegantly appointed. It has a fireplace with antique timber surrounds. The nearby conservatory-style sunroom fills this wing with natural light. The opposite wall is lined in more windows that look out to the north-facing deck. Over two decades at Awaba, the vendors have also completely made-over the backyard, putting in a large, fully tiled pool kept private by a high hedge border. Modern-day revellers would no doubt enjoy spending many evenings on the back verandah basking in the beauty of Awaba and helping themselves to the bar, rather than ringing the bell for service. \ LIAM CARTER property@theweeklyreview.com.au

plenty They never intended to leave. That’s why this 12-month old property is flush with the extras you only contemplate if you’re in for the long haul. The style-savvy family who built on this 500-square metre block thought this quiet court in Plenty’s new city-side estate would be where they would raise their kids. But when overseas opportunity came knocking, they placed the house they had just finished on the market. The house is a Henley design but has been heavily adapted to suit the block’s shape and the family’s needs. It includes side parking for a boat, and an outdoor entertainment area that backs onto a nursery and timber yard. Inside, the house impresses with porcelain tiles and high ceilings. Timber-framed, bi-fold doors connect the inside with the out. The kitchen impresses with CaesarStone benches, glass splashback, high-gloss cabinets, stainless-steel appliances and a walk-in pantry. The hardwood stairs connecting the lounge and study to the top-floor accommodation are also an extra. A good-sized landing introduces four bedrooms. The main bedroom faces the street and has the sort of en suite you would only read about in a high-end, glossy magazine. It has full-height tiles, twin vanities, double shower and separate toilet. You could even soak up views of the streetscape from the bath. \ LIAM CARTER

Like many of the houses built in Doreen in the past few years, this is one way to acquire a big block with four bedrooms, luxury finishes, swimming pool and a near-new home without having to build it. It has a popular floor plan for families, with the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite at the other end of the house to the three bedrooms and main bathroom. This ensures parents and kids feel as if they have their own wing. Three living spaces include a large rumpus room, an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area and a pool room. Beautiful stringybark floors feature throughout the living areas and contrast nicely with classic creamy interiors. The open-plan area is surrounded by a wall of windows and captures plenty of northern sun. The kitchen has a large breakfast bar, Technika gas stove, double oven and pantry. A frameless glass-panelled fence surrounds the solar-heated pool. Landscaped with lawn and garden beds, there’s potential for a green thumb. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

Arriving from the northern end of St Elmo Road provides a clue to this property’s vintage. The iconic art deco tower of the old Heidelberg Town Hall is in full view, looming larger the closer you get to No. 40. Just a couple of minutes by foot to the Ivanhoe town centre, this deco clinker was built just one year after the hall, in 1938. Its elegant, curved façade, set well back behind a big front yard, is one of the property’s most alluring features. The current owners, only the second family to live here, loved the façade so much when they bought the house 33 years ago that it would inspire the extension.

They worked with architect Peter Hirst to turn this clinker cottage into big family residence with two wings capped in curved bay windows extending into the flat backyard. One houses the main bedroom, the other is the living room. These two spaces are connected by a kitchen with chequerboard tiles and a meals area with a glass ceiling. A third wing, also reflecting the curve motif, extends back from the garage. It includes a family room, affectionately known as the “night room”, and an indoor, fully tiled pool with en suite.

This elevated property is instantly appealing because of its polished presentation with gleaming red ironbark floorboards and large windows letting natural light flood in. A formal lounge is at the front, while the main hub of the house looks out to the tiered and landscaped backyard. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances and overlooks the meals area and outdoor dining space. This paved area offers external dining on balmy nights and steps up to a large backyard with room for the children’s play equipment. The floor plan follows a traditional Cape Cod design, where the main bedroom is downstairs and two other bedrooms are upstairs. The main has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with double vanity. Two further bedrooms are downstairs and have built-in wardrobes. Back upstairs, there’s a study and large rumpus room with a billiards table.

Everything is new at these flats. That is, everything but the building itself. Behind the render and the stacked-stone feature walls is an orange-brick shell dating to the 1970s. This once-unsightly set of seven flats has been given its second wind. They are now smart and stylish. The high-spec finish is intended to lure discerning buyers looking for a sound investment just moments from the centre of Heidelberg. The developer has also offered a $400 per week rental guarantee. The flats are mirror image, but numbers one and seven have larger courtyards and demand a higher price. They have dark-stained boards and crisp white walls. The kitchens are impeccable with CaesarStone breakfast bars, glass splashbacks, soft-closing cabinets and stainless-steel appliances, including dishwashers. Both bedrooms are large with big windows and mirrored built-in wardrobes. The back bedroom does have the advantage of opening directly to the private rear courtyard. \ LIAM CArTer

Unit living doesn’t always come with the luxury of being able to entertain friends outdoors in summer – but not in this case. This three-bedroom residence has two outdoor dining areas, suitable for family gatherings. It’s set at the rear of the block, so it’s extremely private and quiet. The house follows a cream colour scheme and pale-pink tiles dominate the casual living zone. A carpeted formal lounge is off the tiled entrance. This leads to the timber kitchen, which has plenty of cupboard space and the casual living area that opens to a private deck, which is covered, for year-round entertaining. A second and bigger north-facing outdoor dining space can be reached from the laundry. If the kids need more room to play, there’s the park across the road. The main bedroom is at the front of the house and has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite. Two other bedrooms share a bathroom and a separate toilet. This property is close to Greensborough Plaza and train station. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA
