MURPHY’s LORE

ALAN Murphy \ EAST-WEST LINK HIGH ON CANDIDATE’S AGENDA

E

ndorsed Labor candidate for the seat of Essendon Danny Pearson has hit the ground running. Just days after his pre-selection he made a formal submission to the government assessment committee considering the impact of the east-west link on our community. Mr Pearson has inherited a safe Labor seat for the November 2014 state election – a seat to which the Liberal Party has paid scant respect in recent elections. He was endorsed unopposed to succeed Justin Madden. The east-west link will be high on his agenda. The huge increase in traffic volumes through Flemington, Travancore, Ascot Vale and Moonee Ponds will lead to “significant health impacts” on residents, long term, through increased air and noise pollution, Mr Pearson suggests. Additionally, residential properties will be compulsorily acquired and adjoining property values reduced. Traffic modelling consultants Veitch Lister have estimated an increase in traffic volumes of up to 25 per cent on Mt Alexander and

very hard for the council to support a new ‘green’ bridge across the Maribyrnong River to allow public transport access from the Heights across to Footscray and Tottenham railway stations. Cr Cornish was initially rebuffed with her proposal earlier this month, but she put a better-prepared motion to this week’s council meeting for which she appeared to have the numbers. Her proposal now calls on the administration to investigate better public transport services in Avondale Heights and East Keilor, including new transport services across the Maribyrnong and extension of tram services from the Maribyrnong Defence site into Avondale Heights and East Keilor. The local community has waited too long. Cr Cornish will be long remembered in the area if she can achieve some action. THE FINAL WORD ...

high Peter Wilmoth meets soPrano Deborah Cheetham

Picture \ julian kingma

14 The weekly review \ DECEMBER 18, 2013


A

s a soprano, Deborah Cheetham is a strong voice on stage. But today it’s her sonorous speaking voice that transports us to a chapter in history we have to remind ourselves isn’t that long ago. We’re in a Southbank café. I had suspected Cheetham was going to be interesting – anyone who writes a play called White Baptist Abba Fan can’t miss – but I’m not sure I was quite prepared for the sadness, the courage and the redemptive power of her story. “I am eternally grateful that I was born with the ability to express myself through music because I had a platform I could work through some of this, a cathartic process figuring out who you are and how you came to be,” she says. “Without that voice, without music, how would I have found my way?”

abandoned but you’re not living that sense of abandonment. It doesn’t really hit home until much later on.” When it did hit home, it hit hard. “In 1985 I was in a play in Canberra. I came out on stage one night and I had to play this scene very close to the front row of the audience, and I looked into the audience and looking back at me was a woman who could have been my identical twin. “It was like a jolt. We met after the play and she had recognised that we had this incredible similarity in our features. And we managed to work out that we were related. The one piece of information my adoptive parents gave me when I was growing up was that I was the niece of Jimmy Little. My mother was his younger sister. “I’d never wielded that piece of information in my whole life.

notes At 49, Cheetham is Australia’s best-known indigenous opera singer. Since making her international debut in 1997, she has performed in concert halls across Europe, the United States, Britain and Australia. She is an outspoken voice on indigenous issues and gay marriage, a respected academic (she is head of the Wilin Centre at the faculty of the Victorian College of the Arts and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, and associate head of indigenous development) and in 2010 wrote and created Australia’s first indigenous opera, Pecan Summer. Now she is using her profile to promote February’s Melbourne Indigenous Arts Festival, as an ambassador. It’s been a long journey to find her place in the world. Cheetham was just three weeks old when she was adopted in 1964 and she grew up in Sydney’s southern suburbs with two other adopted non-Aboriginal siblings. “My adoptive parents were good people,” she says. “They had been told that I’d been abandoned by my Aboriginal mother and they believed that. They were told that by a church authority and, being quite religious themselves, they never questioned that authority. “In time they said, ‘You were abandoned by your Aboriginal mother and we adopted you and essentially we’ve rescued you from your Aboriginality, from being abandoned, from a life that would have been much less than it is with us’. This was a message that was constantly fed to me.” Her adoptive parents, she says, were very generous and “no more dysfunctional than any other parents”. They were church-going Baptists and Cheetham’s earliest memory is of leaning up against her mum in church and hearing her voice. Her father, a baker, and mother, who looked after the children, seldom listened to music, but Cheetham fell in love with singing in church and adored pop music. “I can’t ever remember a time when I wasn’t singing. It was my way of communicating anything.” Cheetham grew up with no connection to her Aboriginal heritage. “I grew up in a world where Aboriginal Australia was completely absent,” she says. It was a scenario she says her parents did nothing to change. Throughout her youth she believed what her parents told her. Her life began with “this falsehood, this lie that I was abandoned”. “As a small child you can’t really comprehend what being abandoned means, particularly when you’re in a family who love you, who take good care of you, provide every opportunity in life for you,” she says. “You’ve been told you’ve been

“as a small child you can’t really comprehend what being abandoned means” I knew Jimmy was a famous Aboriginal man. I never allowed myself to think that he was actual family. He was uncle Jimmy. Any friend of the family was called uncle this or aunty that.” Cheetham said to the woman: “Jimmy’s my uncle.” And the woman said: “We’re cousins and I know your mother. Do you want to meet her?” And that was the breakthrough. Meeting her birth-mother, Monica, in 1985 and then, a decade later, hearing the truth about her adoption, was confronting and confusing for Cheetham. “My adoptive parents had worked really hard to educate me out of being Aboriginal because they saw Aboriginality as less than … something quite negative. My adoptive mother would say, ‘You’re really quite fair; you don’t look that Aboriginal’, implying ‘You could get away with not being Aboriginal if you just try hard enough’. “My parents didn’t see the true value of this unique culture – the longest continuing culture in the world – that wasn’t celebrated in the ’60s and ’70s and when they were growing up in the ’40s and ’50s. They knew hardly anything about it.” Cheetham and Monica slowly developed a relationship, often singing together. But it was to be another 10 years before Cheetham found out what actually happened. “For a decade we tried to find our way,” she says. “And then finally Monica felt that she had to tell the truth.” That truth came in the form of a letter in 1995, in which Monica described how Deborah had been taken from her at three weeks of age, and that Monica had begged the authorities to tell her where they had sent her. For Cheetham it was a defining moment. “In 1964 Monica was a young Aboriginal woman (aged 19). My biological father, her husband, had left her. She had no rights, no one to protect her, no one to stand up for her. The referendum [in 1967] was still a couple of years away. “As an Aboriginal child, especially one with one Aboriginal parent and one non-Aboriginal parent, I could be taken and sent wherever they wanted to send me and my mother had no rights. She was living in an orphanage run by the Salvation

Army.” After giving birth to Deborah, Monica earned some money by picking beans. “She came back after a week and I was gone. In the letter my mother said she’d searched for me. She’d searched for two years and she finally found where they had taken me. “She made her way to Oatley (from Nowra on the NSW south coast), found the home of my adoptive parents. She came to plead with them, could she at least see me, to see how I was getting on. Obviously her deepest desire was to get me back. But she didn’t get any chance to explain any of that because as soon as my adoptive mother saw her approaching the house she got straight on the phone and called the police. The police came and they quite literally dragged Monica away. “I was conflicted. I had a complete breakdown. I was in the middle of a crisis of identity because I’d had this decade of knowing Monica, of trying to see myself in this Aboriginal family and not really understanding what that was.” Cheetham was angry that she hadn’t been told the truth. “I wasn‘t sure at that time how to direct that sense of loss. And I think this is true of so many of the Stolen Generations. Many children that were taken never met their families. “I was fortunate.”

C

heetham wrote a play about her experiences called White Baptist Abba Fan, which premiered in 1997 at the Sydney Opera House. “It really defined that period of my life, of coming to the realisation that I’d been taken, not abandoned, and someone had loved me and not wanted to give me up.” In the play, Monica’s voice can be heard reading the letter. Monica died in 2000. With the confusion and pain of her life story being revealed, music provided a constant comfort for Cheetham. “I think music is so deeply embedded in my identity … I was born with this ability. It’s my way of being in the world.” She toured White Baptist Abba Fan on and off for five years before travelling to Melbourne in 2006 to take up a six-month position at the Victorian College of the Arts. Seven years later she is still here. “I absolutely fell in love with everything about Melbourne. The arts scene, the connectedness, the way Melbourne knows itself. An artist can really find themselves in a city like Melbourne. And I found myself.” Cheetham saw her first opera as a teenager at the Sydney Opera House in 1979 and fell in love. “I thought, ‘This is what I want to do’. She studied at the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music. Her adoptive mother, Marjorie, who died in 2000 aged 78, struggled with her daughter’s very public connection with her Aboriginal mother. “She felt it very deeply,” says Cheetham. “In a way she felt I had abandoned her but how could I have done that? If you ask any adoptive mother this is a question they are constantly considering – ‘I raised this child as our own but there’s another mother out there’.” Her father, Mervyn, who died in 2003 aged 79, was more sanguine. “He could see that he hadn’t lost anything and that the family was as we always were.” In 2009 Cheetham started the Short Black Opera Company, a national non-profit opera company devoted to the development of indigenous opera singers. Her latest project is Til The Black Lady Sings, a recital that tells the story of how the opera company came into being. Accompanying her in the recital will be pianist Toni Lalich, who is Cheetham’s partner in life. They met in 2006 soon after Cheetham arrived in Melbourne. “We were sharing an office and I thought ‘This is it’,” recalls Cheetham. “I knew straight away’.” The couple live in inner Melbourne with one of Cheetham’s three stepchildren from a previous relationship. She is a strong advocate for gay marriage, but she recognises her good luck. “For a soprano to form a relationship with an accompanist is a very fortunate thing,” she says with a smile. \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au We Welcome your feedback @

Que sera \ Sarah Harris finds Dionne Warwick was right: we all need friends

T

he tricky thing about the last column of the year is deciding whether you should reflect on what was or look forward. Regular readers will know that this year has been something of a trial for my family. But should I bury it like the awful, rotten thing it seemed at times? Would I have it wiped off the calendar as the year we didn’t have? If someone had posed those questions four, five months ago I’d almost certainly have said yes. But that’s the great thing about the passing of time: faced with a new reality, it shows you how to live it. 2013 will go down as the year I discovered friends. They’ve always been there – at every stage of my life – but I’d never valued them near enough. It’s partly a consequence of a childhood spent on the move to far-flung satellite and cable station towns where my father was deployed. Unlike my shy, serious brother who suffered these frequent upheavals, I was highly adaptable and made friends easily … at the drop of a hat in fact. And that, of course, was my own peculiar problem. You couldn’t pack friends in a removalist’s truck – so you’d love ’em and leave ’em with nary a backward glance and start again. It probably didn’t help going into a profession where that was what you did to every one, every single day: crashing into people’s lives in the aftermath of disasters or violent crime, or picking at the threads of scandal until some sorry saga unravelled.

Encouraging people – in the midst of the most extreme circumstances – to open up, to talk to you and then lighting out when the next story came along ... that was the job. So much so that I once remarked to a friend who thought enough of me to invite me to a dinner party as one of the best friends she had made for each of the five decades of her life – a list of five people and their partners: “I don’t take prisoners.” I know, I know. Shoot me now! It’s actually quite hard now to be on the brink of 50 and suddenly realise you have spent the best part of half a century being absolutely insufferable. What changed? Well, truthfully, probably not me! But, in 2013 I actually needed people and they were there … without once asking. They flew in from interstate, they called on the phone, they minded the dog, they sent DVDs, CDs, books, emails, texts, wrote note cards, they invited me for meals, they offered trees under which I could safely park the campervan and plug into their mains, they wore masks, gowns and gloves to keep my husband safe and they cut me some slack at work. But the craziest thing is that they would have done

more … if we’d let them. So, while my husband, who physically endured the awful, rotten things in 2013, may disagree, it was also a year of discovery and blessings. And that’s what friends are for. \ sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

ASCOT VALE \ 2/18 ROTHWELL STREET

we love it

I

t’s hard to believe now, but there’s a snippet of swanky Aberfeldie that was once owned by the Housing Commission and covered in modest brick villas. Those few streets – on the southern slope, with a superb view of the city – now enclose some of the most awe-inspiring houses to arise this century. Keeping good company is this sleek three-level townhouse designed by Nick Lukas and built in 2006. Lukas is now a principal of the cutting-edge firm Architecton and has since designed several Aberfeldie houses. This house, with its flowing layout, stone and marble finishes and polished-concrete floors, is millennial style at its coolest. Yet it’s not cold; its white walls and grey floor offer a canvas for almost any décor, from boxy neutrals to rococo extravagance. That works for the current owner, who likes chandeliers made of undulating strips of red glass as much as he likes the neat lines of the square. Concrete? Kids love it. Amid tricycling, skating and thrashing around, this material has demonstrated elegance under pressure. The house devotes most of its ground floor to a living, dining and kitchen area, with a gigantic pair of sliding doors that open the southern wall to the deck and courtyard garden. At the front are a study or double bedroom and a powder room. The first floor has three bedrooms, including the main suite. The lower level has a double garage, laundry with store room and a children’s retreat, delightfully soundproof. The house opens with a secure gate and a towering front door on pivots. Left of the hall is a bedroom, with built-in wardrobes and a french door to a glass balcony overlooking May Street. Behind it is a large powder room, fully tiled in black porcelain with a white free-flowing Corian basin. Five steps down is the kitchen, which has a 900-millimetre stainless-steel Smeg oven with six-ring gas cooktop, a Miele dishwasher and white semi-gloss cabinetry with soft-closing drawers. The benchtops are of grey stone, and the pendant above the island – a glass slab set with 20 tiny LEDs – adds a nicely scientific touch. In the dining area is a colossal table, seating 20, of Kashmir white granite. The owner – groaning at the memory of how six burly mates had to help him lug it in – is happy to sell it along with the house. “It weighs a tonne,” he says ruefully. The living area’s eastern wall has a huge concrete pillar, the better to serve the discreet EcoSmart gas fireplace set into the grey stone sideboard. The southern wall’s sliding doors link the room with the barbecue deck and courtyard with its rectangular pond, allowing for easy indoor-outdoor entertaining. A glass staircase of timber slabs painted black leads to the grey-carpeted first floor. Two double bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and awning windows. The main bathroom has a deep spa, a Calacatta marble benchtop and Italian Corian basin. In the main bedroom, sliding doors lead to a balcony with an uninterrupted panorama – trees, Aberfeldie Park and, beyond, the city skyline. The suite has a walk-in wardrobe and a marble en suite with shower and twin Corian basins. Security, ducted vacuum, zoned heating and cooling, Foxtel points and data cabling are the low-key, high-tech features that make this property perfect for the modern family who appreciate elegance with ease. \ ALISON BARCLAY property@theweeklyreview.com.au

This early 1900s church was converted into five apartments in 2008. All apartments have three levels and are rich in retained detail. Number two nestles towards the rear.

Private sale

To find a city-style apartment on Strathmore’s golden mile is rare; to get one with a gate straight into beautiful Woodlands Park is a luxury. This apartment is on the ground floor of a property built about three years ago on the Essendon side. Sleek and versatile, it would suit couples, downsizers and small families seeking affordable entry to the Strathmore school zone. The open-plan living area has a bluestone-tiled floor, white walls and a western wall of sliding doors that lead to a sunny courtyard. The kitchen has a Miele dishwasher, oven and gas cooktop, and a pull-out pantry. The double bedrooms, with mirrored built-in wardrobes, share a fully tiled bathroom with shower and good storage. In the hall is a concealed laundry with shelves for linen. Intercom, split-system heating and cooling and a secure car space complete this property. The shared gate leads to Woodlands Park’s playground, and the Essendon North shops and tram are two minutes away. Glenbervie station is a 10-minute walk. \ ALISON BARCLAY

ESSENDON \ 103 MARKET STREET A large corner block is a lovely setting for this three-bedroom brick-veneer family house that has a rose-lined brick path, manicured front lawn and hedged gardens. A practical floor plan makes the most of the space, with two of the three bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobes) and the shared bathroom off a side hall to the left of the entry. A third bedroom or study is off to the right. It’s a nice way to contain the private areas of the house and leave the back open for family interaction: here there is a roomy lounge area, dining area and kitchen with a built-in wine rack and microwave slot, plenty of pantry space and Ilve stainless-steel oven and gas stove top. This space is given a lift by the adjoining covered timber patio that’s turned into an all-weather entertainment area, thanks to the clear plastic outdoor blinds that drop down to protect the area from the elements. There is more: a separate laundry has its own door to the outside utilities area at the side of the house, while a six-person spa covered by a wisteria-laden pergola is a highlight. A remote-controlled single-car garage is at the rear of the house, with room for one more car with off-street parking. Extras include ducted heating and refrigerated cooling, proximity to Buckley Park, Keilor Road cafés and trams and schools. \ SARINA LEWIS

Warehouse conversions are becoming an indelible part of Melbourne’s built landscape, including this property on Scarborough Place that was given its new lease on life about 12 years ago. There are eight dwellings as part of the development. No. 3 has a sunny northern orientation and the oversized block-fronted “fence” provides privacy as well as security. Inside, a light atrium and large windows facing the street solve the problem of poor lighting that often troubles row housing. Downstairs are the two bedrooms, bathroom and European laundry. The ground floor introduces the décor of white walls and polished floorboards. Upstairs is the open-plan living, kitchen and dining area. The timber kitchen has stylish glass-fronted cabinets, granite benchtops and a space-saving pull-out pantry. Glass sliding windows in the lounge open to the north-facing balcony.

The new school year will soon be upon us. And once again, your child will be exposed to bullies, peer pressure and a variety of other potentially negative influences. That’s why it’s so important that you give your child the winning edge with martial arts training at our school! Millions of parents have enrolled their children in martial arts classes because they are so effective in developing self-confidence, leadership skills, safety awareness, and fitness. In addition, research conducted by the National Association of Professional Martial Artists has proven that martial arts training raises kids’ grades. So if you like the idea of sending your child back to school with the winning edge, then call us for a free, no obligation trial course. Class space is limited, so don’t wait!
