REVIEW\ MOUTHING OFF “ A VICHEALTH REPORT SHOWED THAT AUSTRALIAN RULES WAS THE MOST COMMON SPORT HOMOSEXUAL MALES WOULD LIKE TO PLAY BUT DON’T, FOR FEAR OF ABUSE.”

THE HARD MEN OF FOOTBALL

Quote of the week goes to “Bob”– News Breakfast viewer, and pithy analyst of some of the more baroque foolishness of our AFL footballers: “If Jason Akermanis has a problem sharing a shower with a gay footballer, he needs to harden up.” Fans of the double-entendre everywhere, rejoice. It would have been forgivable late last week to reach for the easy bludgeon of outrage and scorn upon reading the painfully stupid observations of Western Bulldogs forward Akermanis in the Herald Sun – ones in which he urged any gay footballers to stay in the closet, because the game wasn’t yet ready to deal with openly gay players, and besides, homosexuals made him feel uncomfortable in the shower. But humour is always so much better, and nobody should have wasted their

REVIEW \ RICKIE LEE JONES

time taking something so silly so seriously. Bob got the tone just right: deal with it … or … deal with it! I was left wondering why Aker clearly thought it was OK to be showering with a gay teammate just as long as he didn’t know he was gay. Footy must need to have a unique code around “don’t ask/don’t tell” when you spend so much time patting each other on the bum in the change rooms … in a completely straight way, of course. There must be some sort of AFL pressure valve that always gets let off as we approach the halfway mark of the footy season (if it’s not drinking/driving/or drugging, it’s the latest outburst from Sam Newman or someone closely modelling themselves on him). This time around, Aker’s it. It was reassuring to see openly gay sporting stars lining up to voice their anger and disappointment. Swimmer Daniel Kowalski made the only point that mattered: he wishes he’d come out sooner, as his life is so much better now that he has. At least Akermanis was honest about one thing, and it was almost refreshing to hear him admit it: that there is a great deal of “homoeroticism” in football clubs. (As a gay friend of mine remarked, “So bring on the experts!”) Many of us have wondered long and hard about why men in football – players, commentators, even elder statesmen – like nothing more than getting frocked-up in a little drag. And, switching codes for a moment, there was always something sinisterly exhibitionist

about the NRL sex scandal that revealed the players’ need for their teammates’ company and encouragement. What the less enlightened of these men clearly fear, as perhaps Akermanis’ words show, is what an open admission of gay sexuality might unleash in themselves. And, mate, that’s simply called being repressed! I remember clearly, as a wide-eyed undergraduate, reading a manifesto distributed on campus by the local Gay Society. It was an admonishment of sorts: “Don’t think that just because I’m gay I’m attracted to you”. (It went on, just to mess with your head a bit, “Don’t assume that because I’m gay I’m not attracted to you”!) But I took the point: what has that person’s sexuality got to do with me? And why do I assume they’re immediately going to think I’m the hottest thing around? It’s a distinction poor old Aker is yet to make. To its credit, the AFL does not share Akers’ views: indeed, it has done some decent work on inclusiveness and homophobia. A VicHealth report, released the same day as these comments, showed that Australian rules was the most common sport homosexual males would like to play but don’t, for fear of abuse. But don’t worry, Aker – they won’t want to play with you. \

BEST TRAIT

I keep trying to find my way to a generous understanding of people, to forgive even as I react, to be vulnerable without being weak.

WORST TRAIT

Anger. I get hurt, afraid, and I can really strike out. I don’t want to hurt anyone, (but) that evil gets perpetuated. I wish to be in the place that does not react, well, at least with anger.

BOUGHT

I bought myself a new amp. I never had an amp I bought before; others have brought them to me for a tour.

ATE

Italian, Japanese, omelets, ice-cream, raspberries, pecorino cheese, olives, raisins, salami, frosted mini-wheats, lots of coffee, Coke and Orangina (a French carbonated drink made from orange, lemon and mandarin juice).

SEVEN

A WEEK IN THE LIFE

I sure like San Francisco and Paris.

LOVED EATING

We (my band and I) went to eat raisins this week – the homemade, plump and fat kind – black olives, pecorino and salami during rehearsal. We were sitting down laughing and eating. It was a sunny day and then my ex walks up with his new model and rock-star girlfriend and stands right next to me in the coffee line. He stands there and does not move. Does not speak, lots of places to go for coffee, right? Graceless. But up until then, it was a wonderful meal, and in memory, it seems untouched by the appearance of a man I thought had destroyed my life, which makes the meal even sweeter.

will a new book on raunch culTure raise fresh quesTions abouT The dominance of The sex indusTry in ausTralia?

T

hree years ago in a suburb 40 kilometres east of London, feminist author Natasha Walter found herself at bar that was playing host to a rowdy group of sweaty teenagers and twentysomethings, all in attendance for the launch of the latest issue of Nuts magazine – a so-called lads’ mag that sells about 90,000 copies a week in the UK. Splashed on the cover of Nuts was Cara Brett, an everyday-kind-of-girl from rural Midlands, who became what’s known in the industry as a “glamour model” eight months earlier.

“This is Cara Brett!” shouted the DJ. “She’s on the cover of Nuts this week! So buy her, take her home and have a wank!” Walter was researching her new book, Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism – which was released in Australia through Virago last month – and trying to pry open the sexual world that surrounds young women coming of age in the new century. Her claim is that although opportunities for women are still far wider than they were a generation ago, we are now seeing a resurgence of old sexism in new guises. “Far from giving full scope to women’s freedom and potential,” she writes, “the new hypersexual culture redefines female success through a narrow framework of sexual allure.” Walter is one of a growing group of women – in the UK, the US and Australia – who are daring to expose “raunch culture” for what they see it as: a new kind of sexism. And Cara Brett is the perfect opening character for her book. She tells Walter that she always knew she would be famous – she just wasn’t good at much. “I’m getting my boobs out, but so what?” she says. Her employers at Nuts provide her with money for clothing (though not much of it), hair-dos and make-up, and she poses for spreads called “Boobs Bonanza” and “Blondes in the Buff”. At the Nuts launch, she leads a group of girls on stage in taking off their bras and exposing themselves to the eager crowd. There is an animal roar. Brett is not a prostitute, nor does she consider her work to be pornographic. She is something different altogether – sexually desirable, raunchy, but not entirely ready to get her full kit off. Which is why, back in Australia, as in the UK, thousands of young women are wanting to be like her: a woman they see as empowered, liberated, but also sexually desirable. Zoo magazine is one of Australia’s most popular lads’ mags – it boasts it has sold more than 20 million copies since its first issue four years ago and is the

biggest selling weekly men’s magazine in the world. Like Nuts, its target audience is pubescent males with short attention spans and a laddish sense of humour. It has a huge following online as well as in print, where members can watch girls strip on “Zoo Tube” (at zooweekly.com.au) and rate photos of their breasts on “Hottest D-cup Celebs”. But despite, or perhaps due to, its burgeoning popularity, Zoo is now coming under threat of being pulled from petrol-station magazine stands and newsagents for depicting what rights advocates say is soft pornography; more specifically, soft pornography involving women who look younger than 18. Producing such material is a criminal offence in Victoria. It won’t be an easy battle. Despite the graphic nature of some magazines, lads’ mags remain, like “regular” pornography, an acceptable part of mainstream culture. Unless, that is, women such as Natasha Walter successfully challenge this dominant perception. “In Britain, feminism is coming back,” says Sheila Jeffreys, professor of sexual politics at the University of Melbourne. “It hasn’t happened here yet … but it will happen because it has to happen, and it always happens just a little bit out of step with what’s going on in Europe and other places,” she says. Jeffreys, who is originally from the UK, is recognised as one of Australia’s leading gender studies academics. She says lads’ mags are becoming “more explicit and more pornographic” – in step with Australia’s growing acceptance of the sex industry over the past two decades – and says we are now alone in the world in terms of what we deem acceptable. “Australia is so gung-ho for the sex industry that it is simply not possible to express (opposing views) in print or elsewhere,” she says. “The industry is so much of the culture we live and breathe, and has developed gradually over the past couple of decades to the point where sex-industry values now dominate the culture.”

The differenT faces of feminism Betty Friedan \ the Feminine mystique

Betty Friedan’s 1963 book The Feminine Mystique is sometimes credited with sparking the second wave. Friedan was a strong proponent of the repeal of abortion laws, founding the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws. Her book was written after she began publishing articles about what she called “the problem with no name”, and got passionate responses from many housewives grateful that they were not alone in experiencing this problem.

Germaine Greer \ the Female eunuch

Germaine Greer’s international bestseller The Female Eunuch argued that men hate women, though the latter do not realise this and are taught to hate themselves. The book’s main thesis is that the “traditional” suburban, consumerist nuclear family represses women sexually, and that this devitalises them, rendering them eunuchs.

review\ the return of sexism »

is the label that has been “raunch” given to a cultural trend in which women embrace their sexuality as a tool for

empowerment. It is considered part of “third-wave” feminism, and is at the centre of many current gender debates. One of the first critiques of raunch culture was New Yorker writer Ariel Levy’s 2005 book Female Chauvinist Pigs. The book exposed the evolution (or devolution) of second-wave feminism during an obsession in the 1990s with Girls Gone Wild videos, pole dancing, casual sex, Brazilian waxing and other activities once thought demeaning to women. The book was seen as a turn away from the third wave, which defined itself against the apparent “victimhood” of second-wave feminists such as Germaine Greer and Betty Friedan. Those who disagreed with Levy’s assessment insisted that the women involved with raunch culture weren’t being forced to do anything against their will: It was their free choice, they said, to use their bodies however they wanted. But others welcomed her assertion that it was usually men behind the scenes, creating and profiteering from the raunch industry. Hugh Hefner’s Playboy bunny empire, with its marketing success across the world, was the most obvious example. While resistance against raunch is slowly building overseas, few women are questioning the trend here. There may even be very few women who readily identify as feminists. Nina Funnell is a 26-year-old researcher and commentator on feminist issues in Australia. She says many of her past students identify with feminist principles and politics, but do not personally identify as feminists. “Unfortunately many still believe in the old stereotypes – that feminists are angry, shrill, bra-burning, man-hating dykes,” she adds. In the UK, Jeffreys says, more women are using traditional notions of feminism to express anger towards a range of issues, particularly the growing pervasiveness of raunch culture. TheFWord.org.uk, an aptly named website, is dedicated to debating issues relating to women no matter what the definition of “F” may be. The site receives hundreds of comments each month, most of which focus on pornography, prostitution, and the raunch industry. Similarly, the website FeminismInLondon.org.uk now has thousands of people on its email list. “They are mostly really young women,” Jeffreys says. “And they are ropable!” There are subtle signs here, too, that women are feeling the pressure of a new kind of sexism. Tickets for a symposium of leading feminists, called the F Conference, was sold out in Sydney in April, attracting more than 500 women. More locally, the Next Wave festival running throughout May in Melbourne will exhibit a project called The View From Here, which pairs eight writers

“the legal definition of hate crimes is perfect (for vilification against women). it isn’t that these things cannot be done, it is that there is no will to do any of it.” – sheila Jeffreys, professor of sexual politics at the university of melbourne.

with eight artists to explore a new perspective on feminism, which is “non-prescriptive” and “references the past whilst carving out a future”. Leading criticism of the raunch industry in Australia is Melinda Tankard Reist, a Canberra-based advocate for women and girls and editor of Getting Real: Challenging the Sexualisation of Girls (Spinifex Press, 2009). Like Walter, she argues that the formation of a post-feminist complacency in the West has allowed for the new sexism to evolve quietly: Since the idea has taken hold that women and men are equal, she says, it is seen as acceptable that women should again be relentlessly encouraged to prioritise their sexual attractiveness. “(It) is part of a capitalist celebration of the female sexual consumer who can choose to buy dildos, Botox, pole-dancing classes, new breasts, Brazilians, surgically altered and coloured labias,” she wrote earlier this month on Online Opinion. “This is a parody of liberation in which women become a mere participant in a mass-marketed orgy of so-called sexual freedom.” Whether you agree or not with the assertions these women are making, there is no doubt that raunch culture and the commodification of women through pornography and the sex industry is an increasingly heated topic. Take, for example, the huge response to the sacking of

former Age columnist and comedian Catherine Deveny by editor-in-chief Paul Ramadge this month. Deveny was canned for Tweeting during the Logies that she hoped Bindi Irwin would “get laid”. She defended the remarks, saying she was “employing humour to highlight the sexual objectification of women, raunch culture and the nature of celebrity”. “On the Logies catwalk, Bindi Irwin was the only one not dressed in anything remotely provocative, which highlighted the one-dimensional reality of the relentless sexual objectification of women of the media,” she said in an apology on The Drum website. The apology attracted more than 900 comments. “... Unfunny bigmouths who try to justify their crass utterances with the ‘checkers’ defence are therefore capable of learning nothing” one person wrote. Others leapt to her defence: “Take comfort in the fact that you are inspiring a new generation of high-school girls who will be ready to take on the world,” said one. “A role model who kept her clothes on!” said another. in Europe and sex industries the UK are now coming under more pressure than ever before from

lobby groups to acknowledge their associations with violence, crime and social degradation. But according to Jefferys, government bodies in Australia have been under very little public pressure to clean up the industry. Presently in Victoria, hate-crimes legislation only refers to the discrimination of an individual or group based on their race or religion. No vilification law exists in relation to gender, but Jeffreys and others are in the process of drafting amendments to the laws to submit to Victorian Parliament. Jeffreys says that women are always left out of hate crimes legislation because they would “explode the category” – in other words, they are seen as too big a minority to be worth separating. “But the legal definition of hate crimes is perfect (for vilification against women). It isn’t that these things cannot be done, it is that there is no will to do any of it.” For Nina Funnell, this is also a personal issue. Three years ago she was grabbed from behind and dragged into a park at knifepoint by a stranger, who strangled her and sexually assaulted her. She escaped, but was left traumatised. “As someone who has experienced an attempted abduction, rape and murder (which I absolutely read as a hate crime – I was attacked because of my gender) I cannot believe that hate crime laws do not include gendered hate crimes.” She says the issue came up again last year when she was involved in an incident in which a group of students from St Paul’s College at the University of Sydney set up a “pro-rape, anti-consent” Facebook group. “Had it been a ‘pro-bashing Asians’ Facebook group’, for example, we could have got the boys involved on hate-crime charges,” she says. “But inciting rape – apparently not.”

the different faces of feminism AndreA dworkin \ PornogrAPhy: Men Possessing woMen

80s

Andrea Dworkin, who died in 2005 at age 58, was best known for her criticism of pornography, which she argued was linked to rape and other forms of violence against women. Dworkin wrote 10 books on radical feminist theory and practice. During the late 1970s and 1980s, she gained national fame as a spokeswoman for the feminist anti-pornography movement, and for her writing on pornography and sexuality, particularly in Pornography: Men Possessing Women (1981) and Intercourse (1987).

nAoMi wolf \ The BeAuTy MyTh

Naomi Wolf garnered fame in the 1990s as a spokeswoman for third-wave feminism when her book The Beauty Myth became an international bestseller. In the book, Wolf argues that “beauty” as a normative value is socially constructed, and that the patriarchy determines the content of that construction with the goal of reproducing its own hegemony.

review\ the return of sexism »

Jeffreys even goes as far as describing Victoria as a “pimp state” because of how far it is willing to go to protect the trade and exploitation of women’s bodies, regardless of its huge effect on society. “Organised crime involvement in strip clubs is absolutely rife – through bikie gangs and other Mafia,” she says. “The (Victorian) Government has made a contract with its male citizens to make sure they have access to women’s bodies despite the enormous harm the industry causes, not only to the women prostituted but to the status of all women in the state.” Prostitution and organised crime have long been synonymous, but this relationship has rarely been a cause of scrutiny of the sex industry. Spearmint Rhino, the world’s largest chain of strip clubs, was set up in California by Italian “boss” John Gray (formally John Luciano), and the Melbourne club is reportedly managed by Amad “Jay” Malkoun, a convicted heroin trafficker and former kickboxer. Malkoun is also believed to be president of the Melbourne branch of the Comancheros gang, and is said to have close links with other venues, including Dreams Gentlemen’s Club on Elizabeth Street. Even the Manhattan nightclub Scores, which Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has admitted to visiting on a trip to New York, is run by the infamous Gambino family. So why is a review of the legislation surrounding strip clubs and prostitution rarely, if ever, on the table? Australia’s mixed, and often conflicting, view on the sex industry might stem from its prominent presence in the public arena in the form of billboards and newspaper advertisements. Jeffreys says prostitution has legitimated itself, become normalised and flourished in Australia though regular advertising in local press. And, she says, the reason magazines such as Ralph, FHM and Zoo have become more explicit is because they’ve had to up the ante to compete with Australia’s saturated sex culture.

But just how explicit are these magazines and why are they being targeted

now? Susie McLean is the director of CyberSafteySolutions, an agency that offers advice to schools and businesses on how to be safe online. She is also a former cop, and was the first Victorian police officer to be appointed to a position involving cyber safety and young people. “If you ask someone what they think is in People magazine, for example, I guarantee you they wouldn’t come up with the kind of material that’s in there,” she says. McLean, who is involved in the attempt to remove lads’ magazines from supermarkets and newsagents where children can see them, claims the public’s relaxed approach to the sexualisation of young women is due to a lack of awareness of what’s out there.

banned. Like many others pushing for the magazines to be re-classified, she sees it as more of a child rights issue than a women’s rights issue. “I think some of the images portrayed in these magazines are clearly demeaning to women, but I also think children don’t have a voice; they rely on adults to protect them,” she says. Indeed, in a bizarre development, children engaging in flirtatious activities online are now being found guilty of perpetrating sex offences against themselves. According to McLean, there is presently a large number of young people – many young children – in children’s courts across Australia charged with manufacturing or transmitting child pornography because they’ve uploaded explicit photos of themselves on the internet. “I now deal with girls around the age of 12 who think its OK to take a naked or semi-naked photo of themselves with a vibrator and send it on,” McLean says. “They have no concept of what it is that they’re doing. They take a raunchy picture, send it off, flirt … but they don’t think of the consequences; they don’t think it’s permanent; they don’t think it’s child pornography because they made it themselves,” she says. Earlier this month, Victoria Police announced that changes to the sexual discrimination act would include laws against “sexting” – sending sexually explicit images via internet phones. But the move could be seen as superficial next to sites such as Zoo magazine’s, which features the same kind of videos that police are concerned about. Readers of the magazine are encouraged to visit the site and share “sexy” videos with friends and strangers. Likewise, anyone can become a member and upload their own

semi-naked photo to be “rated”. Like Nuts, Zoo’s models are not celebrities but “real” girls such as Cara Brett (bleached hair and fake tan withstanding). They are the type of girls you would probably expect to see in a shopping mall or in school uniform, rather than on the front cover of a magazine. And this is the idea. As Walter establishes, these magazines sell more copies when they have anonymous women on the cover rather than recognisable ones. The reason? It is easier to mentally take off their clothes, Walter suggests. Funnell says the most concerning difference between the content of lads’ mags and that of pornography is that in magazines such as Zoo, the images of women appear alongside racist, misogynist and homophobic jokes. “Instead of teaching young men that it is permissible and possible to explore sexual fantasy in a way that is pleasurable and respectful to women, these magazines often mix such fantasy with deliberately bigoted content,” she says. “It makes it harder for young men to separate those things and, worse, the few individuals who do hold genuinely misogynistic and sexist attitudes can use these magazines to reinforce and justify their views.” What is even more alarming, she says, is that the magazines now seem to be reinforcing violence and aggressive behaviour as necessary to maintain a teenage boy’s interest. Indeed, a casual perusal of the Zoo website will lead you to sections such as “Confessions: I love to be dominated”, where a girl describes how she enjoys being pushed around during sex. “My knees buckled and he whipped me round and threw me down on the bed,” she says, smiling in the adjacent photo. Funnell says it is not that these things are morally wrong, but it is important to determine whether young women are behaving this way for their own pleasure or just for their boyfriend’s. “I don’t think that there is anything inherently wrong with rough sex, anal sex, whipping or any other sexual act that may typically be defined as ‘deviant’,” she says. “But if a woman (or man) is pressured, forced or coerced into a particular activity – if they do so out of obligation, not desire, if their consent is anything other than ‘enthusiastic’, I have concerns.” Funnell is optimistic that a movement will eventually form to act against the harm caused by this new raunch culture in Australia. And if the growing tide against lads’ mags such as Zoo and Nuts is anything to go by, she could be right. “My hope is that the up-and-coming generation of feminists will break the stalemate (over raunch culture),” says Funnell. “I hope that I will be one of those feminists.” \

Review\ KeePiNG THe BeAT

the theatre of tap You don’t have to be a regular Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire to shuffle to the Shim Sham Shimmy, writes FrAnceScA cArter.

E

very Monday night, Miss Pam Jones catches two trams then takes a 20-minute walk to attend Miss Jane’s 7.30 Sweet Sherries class. For most people this hour-long journey is nothing out of the ordinary. For Miss Pam, a lady in her eighties, it is a remarkable feat. Welcome to the world of tap, where anyone from ages seven to 87 can put on a pair of low-heeled shoes and make some noise. “I don’t know of any other dance you can still do even when you can’t walk,” says Miss Jane, who teaches many elderly dancers. “Quite often I will say, ‘Put your hands up if you liked that dance’, and some of our dancers will say, ‘Miss Jane, I can’t really put up my hand’.” Tap dancing is a fusion of several percussive dance forms including jigs, clogging and tribal dancing and drumming. Unlike ballet and other dance forms, tap was developed from people who listened and watched each other – whether it was on the street, stage, in the neighbourhood or club. The original founders of tap exchanged ideas, stole steps and created what we know today as tap. It first began in the US in the early half of the 20th century, when it was the main performance dance of Broadway and Vaudeville, a popular form of theatrical entertainment before television. John Bubbles popularised a slower, more syncopated style of tap dance, while Bill “Bojangles” Robinson adapted his tap to fit the rhythmic complexity of jazz. Miss Pam started tapping in 1939, when she performed at Red Cross events. “It was much stricter back then. My younger sister would get in trouble because the teachers would say she was fudging. She wasn’t doing it properly.” Back then, Miss Pam was instructed to follow the steps of Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, who were the first to bring tap to the silver screen in the 1940s and ‘50s. Both performers expanded the style of tap dancing by adding movement from ballet and modern dance, further inspiring an army of street tappers. Tap today is very different to what it was, as performers adapt steps and styles from all genres of dance – Latino to hip hop. Tap Dogs, a show created by Australian dancer and choreographer Dein Perry, revolutionised the way dance is presented to

a modern-day audience. Tap Dogs is an 80-minute show that features just six men performing non-stop tap-dance routines on a set that was designed to look like a construction site. It put Australia on the map in terms of being a dance nation, and it has continued to be performed in major cities around the world. In Melbourne, tap has played a major part of dancing culture, with numerous dance studios offering instruction. In her 70 years of tapping, Miss Pam has witnessed many changes to tap dancing in the costumes, music and style of dance. “We used to dance like Gene Kelley and Fred Astaire, now we do fun steps which Miss Jane makes up like the Thriller and the Pineapple,” Miss Pam says as she moves her hands above her head and shuffles to the side to demonstrate how the pineapple step is performed. Miss Pam loves the theatricality of tap dancing and looks forward to Friday-night soirees and the end-of-year concerts. “The soiree lets anybody get up and do anything, and everybody just laughs the whole time. It is lots of fun.” Despite having serious heart surgery, which has impaired her speech and memory, Miss Pam has no intention to stop dancing. “I practice at home all the time. The laundry is the best place to practice because it has a cement floor.” IntErnatIonal tap DancIng Day

More than 200 dancers tapped their way through Prahran market on Saturday, between the fruit and vegetable produce. Dressed in sequined underwear and their tap shoes, the dancers performed the famous Shim Sham Shimmy in celebration of International Tap Dancing Day. Since 2002, tap dancers across the state have been celebrating May 25 as a day to commemorate the birthday of the so-called grandfather of tap, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson. Glamour Puss Studios continuously pays homage to the day by tap dancing on the steps of Parliament, at City Square, Federation Square and Queensbridge, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Southbank. This year they have dedicated a whole week to the history of tap dancing. \

Why should I do It?

“THE LAUNDRY IS THE BEST PLACE TO PRACTICE BECAUSE IT HAS A CEMENT FLOOR”

happy feet “i

ts fun and noisy and we like the glamour,” says nine-year-old Annabelle, who started tap dancing last year and has already perfected the Shim Sham Shimmy – a complex dance routine that was practiced in the 1920s. After watching her mother perform in classes and concerts, Annabelle and her younger sister Claudia began their Shirley Temple children’s class. Now they can’t stop moving their feet. “The girls tried ballet but found it really boring,” says their mother, Sarah, who has been tapping for seven years. “They love coming here because there is no pressure. It’s not like other dance schools.” It’s easy to see why children love attending Miss Jane’s Glamour Puss Studios. It is a dazzling treasure chest; paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, feather bowers surrounding the entrance, faux fur, tiaras, glitter, baubles and beads. There are hips swinging, children winking, twirling, smiling, beeping, thudding. It is infectious. But for Claudia and Annabelle, the best thing about tap is the end-of-year extravaganza, when they get to dress up in colourful costumes and make-up. “Last year we had two costumes. We got to dress up as a cowboy and then a punk-rock star. It was so much fun,” says Claudia as she begins to re-enact one of the dance routines. For grandma Anne, she just hopes this year she will be able to fly onto the stage upon a silver moon like Dorothy Lamour. “This is my dream, and every year I say, ‘Please Miss Jane, before I retire can I fly in on a moon?’,” says Anne. “But you will never retire,” Miss Jane says, grinning.

FAshion “While we love a leg warmer, there is a strict no-leotard policy,” says Miss Jane, who was traumatised as a child when she forgot her leotard and had to dance in her undies. Dancers can wear anything from a flowing dress to leggings and a T-shirt, providing they wear a tap or low-heeled shoe. noise Whether you are a beginner or an expert, tap shoes make the most fantastic noise when they hit the floor – it is music for your feet. Tap dancing is also a stress buster for people who have had a hard day at the office. “There is nothing like stomping out your stress,” says Miss Jane, whose students include lawyers, doctors and police officers. Achievement “There are lots of basic skills that will have you sounding fabulous almost straight away,” says Miss Jane, who encourages everyone to try a beginner’s class. “After just a few sessions dancers will know the steps to a routine and feel a sense of satisfaction.” Fun Ever watched a tap dancer perform? Judging from Miss Jane’s classes, more time is spent laughing than dancing. Fitness “Tap dancing will leave you with the most fantastic pins,” says Miss Jane, who was recently surrounded by a group of nurses intrigued by the shape of her calf muscles. As well as toning your legs, tap is a fantastic cardiovascular exercise and an alternative to the gym.

proud of. Open since late last year, and nestled beneath the Nine Yarra office and apartment block, it’s a pleasant nook with obvious appeal for its fortunate locals. That it’s so close to public transport will make it a natural drawcard for tourists and travelling coffee lovers, too. There are two additional outposts, or dining rooms, one with five small, round tables and another seating up to 30. But the central kitchen contains most of the colour and movement. Five to six staff members work in the tight space, and they appear to do it with excellent cheer. Chef Paul Jewson (ex-Soho House, London) heads the cooking team, producing a snappy, innovative menu. The barista’s station is well set up; two-tiered shelving provides maximum space for coffee paraphernalia and speedy service. A house-blend ristretto positively sings. It’s light and bright with notes of strawberries, oranges and cloves. The gorgeous cold-drip coffee filter in its glass, brass and timber stand adds the final touch of timeless elegance, even before you taste the rich, dark brew it produces.

It’s confirmed by the colourful array of cakes and baguettes and the appropriately accented, rather merry staff.

REVIEW\ DECANTER

Are you being served? it wasn’t bad. It got me thinking about the ever-increasing monopolies of the big alcohol retailers, which flog bargain-basement bottles of wine that the public continues to snap up. We know these cheap prices don’t help the bottom line of the smaller wineries, but when they manage to deliver low prices on a large range of wine, why would you go anywhere else? For an ongoing relationship, expert advice and something new, that’s why. It can be hard to find good, old-fashioned service between the long aisles in a booze megamarket. The kid at the register probably doesn’t know you prefer cool-climate shiraz and is unlikely to suggest you should try one of their favourites. To get good service, you’re better off heading to a good local, independent bottle shop. But what constitutes good? For me, it’s diversity, friendly staff and a good website. I want to be able to walk in to a shop and get good advice without feeling like I’m being judged on what I like and how much I want to spend. I live in Richmond, and there’s really not

D’ARENBERG THE FOOTBOLT SHIRAZ 2008 (MCLAREN VALE) $18; 14.5 per cent a/v ★★★★ Food match: Steak and kidney pie. I’ve been a fan of the rustic charms of The Footbolt for a while now. At first, this smelt like an antique shop full of French-polished furniture (20 months on a mix of new and old oak can do that) but quickly revealed aromas of violets, dark berries and a hint of leather. In the glass, it’s the colour of midnight and has concentrated flavours of stewed blackberries and plums with a hint of spice and black pepper. The Footbolt has a pedigree of ageing well, and this should be no exception. I have a stash of the 2001 vintage that I’m still enjoying.

TASTINGS\ DRINK THIS KIRRIHILL CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2008 (Clare Valley) $15; 14.5 per cent a/v ★★★ ½

Food match: Midweek pizza

EVANS & TATE CLASSIC WHITE 2009 (Margaret River) $20; 12.5 per cent a/v ★★★

Classy cab

The Kirrihill wines I have tried are all good value, and this is no exception. Made from grapes from two vineyards in the Clare Valley, this shows aromas of redcurrants, violet and plums with a hint of pencil oak that are followed by flavours of cassis, stewed plum and chocolate oak. This is almost full-bodied with fine, ripe tannins and well worth trying.

Food match: Chicken tikka masala

Classic

Subtle sav blanc

Fine French

From the home of the semillon/sav blanc blend, Margaret River, this harmonious combination of semillon and sauvignon blanc has aromatic scents of gooseberries and tropical fruits with grassy, herbal notes. It’s racy acid and flavours of lemon, peach and pear combine well in this dry, refreshing wine.

VAL JOANIS RESERVE LES GIROTTES SYRAH 2006 (Rhone Valley, France) $42; 13.5 per cent a/v ★★★★

QUARRY HILL SAUVIGNON BLANC 2009 (Canberra) $16; 12.5 per cent a/v ★★★

Food match: Daube of beef

Food match: Chicken with chilli and lemongrass

From the appellation of Luberon in the southern part of the Rhone Valley, this straight shiraz is a far cry from the blockbuster style Australia has made famous. It’s peppery and minerally with bright-red fruits and has a herbaciousness you often get with southern Rhone reds. It’s medium bodied and quite dry, which belies its sweet fruit fragrance, and tastes of dark cherries and plums with some pepper spice.

From a cool-climate region better known for riesling and its reds comes this fresh sauvignon blanc. Aromas are on the herbaceous end of the sav blanc spectrum mixed with quince and tropical fruits. It has flavours of lemongrass, gooseberry and tropical fruits and comes with a lovely mouthfeel and a crisp, dry finish. It’s a more subtle wine than many Kiwi sav blancs and is certainly better suited to food.

Review\ inteRview

music, marriage, maths homework – Peter WiLmoth catches up with Deborah Conway and finds out that she has become quite the juggler.

G

raham Greene wrote that there is always a moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in. That door, for Deborah Conway, might have opened a little later, in a large, rundown house in Rockley Road in South Yarra in 1980 that she shared with six, seven or eight others, depending on the week or the month. The house gained some fame for the colourful nature of its 23 or so tenants over the three years it was rented (which included The Age’s football writer, Caroline Wilson), for the fact that it was never locked, that a turntable was almost constantly spinning LPs and for a pat of butter that somehow found it way onto the living-room ceiling and stayed there, becoming whatever butter becomes over time.

Great balance: Deborah Conway has managed to successfully combine work and home life. (JUlian Kingma)

Amid all this, Conway worked on her dream. And worked hard. This was a strong and clear-eyed young woman not easily put off her course. So picture this: Conway, 20, sitting on a dilapidated couch playing her guitar, a pen and notebook beside her, and when not playing music herself, listening to her heroes, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and David Bowie. Mostly resisting the financial lure of a modelling career (her Big M ads certainly helped her cover the $30 a week rent), Conway’s door-opening moment was her burning desire and ambition to be a musician. And it was a good house in which to nurture that dream. Among the other residents were the late Paul Hester (then playing drums in the Cheks, soon to be Split Enz and later Crowded House), a guy called Chris who played bass in the Cuban Heels, a hard-working Melbourne band, and a guitar-playing amateur with a tendency to write songs who had a day job as a journalist at The Age with access to lots of promotional LPs and who would have loved a music career except for a small technical reason involving lack of talent. That last guy was me. Conway’s memories of those days are clear. “Caro (Wilson) really liked Don’t Throw Stones by the Sports. I was listening with a deep passion to Tom Petty’s Refugee. We would put them on, one after the other, and discuss the merits of each, who had the best song.” One night the household threw a party for many hundreds of people. “It was more than a party,” Conway says, “it was a festival event in a suburban street.” It was perhaps her first experiencing of pulling together a major event. As a part-time model and volunteer puppy walker for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, Conway wasn’t sure how to get started in music. “I remember thinking ‘How do I do this? How do I get a band?’ I didn’t know what to do. So I put an ad in the paper, ‘Singer wants band’. Had two responses.” Conway joined the Benders then Do Re Mi, had a big alternative hit called Man Overboard, almost certainly the first Australian hit to refer to pubic hair, went solo, had a big mainstream hit with It’s Only the Beginning and then, over the next three decades, did a thousand things, including festival administration, acting, re-inventing promotion with 20-minute sets in people’s homes or offices and marrying musician Willy Zygier. Thirty years later, Conway is in her Windsor home (complete with recording studio). She and musical collaborator of 20 years, Willy Zygier, have three daughters, Syd, 15, Alma, 12, and Hettie, 10. It’s a sign that the personal meets the professional when Zygier

is called away from the interview to help with Hettie’s maths homework. Life goes on. There are some small differences here to the house we used to share – there’s no butter on the roof, for starters. And I suspect this house gets locked at night. And I’m tipping that members of Midnight Oil don’t drop around randomly to throw a Frisbee, as they did at Rockley Road.

N

o, these are different times. But it’s worth celebrating that Conway’s passion for music has not dimmed with the passing years and that she is still excited by the uncertainty of a creative life. “What could be more uncertain than staring at a blank piece of paper and wondering what’s going to happen to it? It’s the living on the edge, it’s the thrill of it. You stare at that piece if paper and say ‘I can’t do this, I can’t write this, I’ve got nothing to say.’ And then suddenly, somehow it happens.” It’s an achievement to still be making a living doing what you love. “A lot of musicians have dropped out of the game,” says Zygier. “It’s too difficult, too uncertain, they need a wage.” Conway: “Some say ‘Jesus, you’re not still doing that, are you? There are people who did professional degrees, did 20 years in showbiz and then go back to being doctors, psychiatrists and accountants.” Zygier: “I think those people do miss the biz. I still do it because I like it. I’d feel terrible if I had to go and use my BA for something.” Conway and Zygier’s new album is Half Man Half Woman, produced by musical wunderkind James Black, whose talents grace the SBS program RocKwiz. It is a record they say is about love in middle age. There’s warmth (“It’s not the same without you/No heat in my flame without you”) and there’s betrayal (“I waited at the crossroads with my heart out of shape/Waiting, as it turned out, for a treacherous snake”). It’s about betrayal, men lying when it suits them, afraid to be honest about their weaknesses or cheating. “It’s about a lot of people I know who have been betrayed,” Conway says. “Every song is grounded in real life.” Conway and Zygier have worked together and been partners since they met 20 years ago (they married two years ago). Their admiration – and it may as well be said given what their album’s about, their love – for each other is obvious. Far from putting stress on the relationship, Conway says it has enhanced it. “I think it would put a lot of stress on the relationship if we were doing really different things because there would be no understanding of each other’s existences. It gives us endless wells of conversation. We never have a shortage of things to say to each other. It was always in my mind that it would be easier to work with someone you had a relationship with. I’ve done the other thing and it’s difficult. You’re often away.” She still travels often as artistic director of the biannual Queensland Music Festival and is working on the program for the 2011 edition. Last July, the festival presented 44 events to an audience of more than 140,000 people in 20 regions across Queensland, including an opening event on Thursday Island featuring Kev Carmody, Michael Nyman’s concert with William Barton and US artist Dan Hicks. Conway says there were some magical performances. “I think the Queensland Music Festival is unique in the world in its focus on community and its ability to take music into regional areas that it is not normally able to access,” she says. Aside from the creative rewards, there are other benefits. “It’s sort of good to be on a payroll,” she smiles. “That’s kind of fun.” It’s a tough gig trying to make a living out of music these days, especially where Conway and Zygier sit away

from major-label support. With declining CD sales, the music industry has become tougher for artists. Conway and Zygier long ago recognised the need to be versatile, both artistically and in promoting their work. In 2005 they launched the inaugural production of Broad, the concert series that brought together women from different styles of music including Katie Noonan, Ella Hooper, Clare Bowditch, Mia Dyson, Kate Miller-Heidke, Sally Seltman and the late Ruby Hunter. Broad toured the country to glowing reviews. The shows took the best part of nine months to organise and ended up financially problematic. “It showcased some great talents and we’re really proud of how it went,” Conway says. “It was a fantastic thing to do. For me it was inspiring to have played with so many wonderful female artists who bring such unique and different styles. But it was a very time-consuming and financially sapping exercise. We’re very good at losing money. We’re incredibly successful at it.” In 2005 Conway and Zygier found a new way to market their product – Summerware parties, a play on the name of their album Summertown and the old-fashioned Tupperware party. Summertown was the first release on their own label. “We’ve done more than 100 of them,” Conway says. “They were so successful we’ll do it again. This time we’ll have Half Man Half Woman parties.” People make contact with them via the web, buy 30 CDs, and Conway and Zygier deliver them, sign them and play a 20-minute set in their house. “It’s a really nice thing to do. It’s the perfect marriage between old-fashioned, traditional minstrelship, like you’re round a campfire with a couple of guitars, and internet technology. It’s a good way to market a record.”

A

fter the success of It’s Only the Beginning, Conway diversified into theatre and administration, but never stopped performing. “I always loved performing and wanted to keep that core business bubbling along,” she says. “There are just different ways of expressing the core business. Broad was about that. The path was forged as I went. I don’t think I ever had that five-year plan. I think that’s what keeps me interested, too. Always at the core is wanting to write a really great song and perform it.” She retains an affection for her breakthrough hit single even though she sometimes felt trapped by it. “Every time I put something out and go on the radio people would go, ‘Yeah, yeah, but can we play It’s Only the Beginning.’ I’d say, ‘But I’ve got this new record out and I’d really like you to play something off that.’ ‘Yeah, yeah, but people like to hear what they know.’ That was a frustration for me.” She was shocked when in 2005 her close friend Paul Hester, who she’d met back in the days of that share house, took his own life. In the Rockley Road share house, Hester was warm-hearted and hilarious company who would dazzle the rest of us with his brilliant impersonations and razor-sharp wit. “It was devastating,” Conway says. “He was a beautiful man and I will always wonder why he did it. I didn’t particularly notice anything that I would have said was pointing in this direction.” It’s now evening in the Conway/Zygier house. After a day of interviews it’s time to focus on the family side of things – making dinner, helping oversee the homework, school lunches. It’s a juggle. Music and family have dominated Conway and Zygier’s lives together. “It does your head in, this juggling,” Conway says. “Somebody has to be here and someone has to be there and there’s a sport class to get to or someone’s got to go to the dentist or someone’s got to go to a dance class … and all of that juggled around this … I’ve got a great helpful wonderful mother.” And husband. “How do I cope? Willy Zygier is the answer.” \

All your loved ones are around you – family and friends, present and former partners, children and, hopefully, your loving parents and dogs. And the expression on their faces says, “Stephanie, you look great for 50.” That expression is so overused. Let’s go into what it really means. Is it because I’m fit and healthy? Is it because I have the right haircut that highlights my features? Or possibly I have a happy expression?

REVIEW\ FASHION

Winter warmers the cooler months start, it is an appropriate AS time to consider how winter’s chill will influence your wardrobe. You can’t brave a

(WIREIMAGE / AFP / GETTY IMAGES)

Melbourne winter without a warm coat – and if we are to take cues from the Paris, New York and Milan Ready To Wear Fall/Winter 2010-11 fashion shows, there’s something for everyone when the blistering cold hits. Karl Lagerfeld, the designer behind Chanel’s Fall/Winter Ready To Wear collection in Paris, highlighted the use of fake fur coats in various colours and textures. There were full-length bear-like jackets as well as those with fringe trimmings and fur embellishments. Lagerfeld, who was clearly impressed by the quality of fake fur he dedicated an entire collection to it, also added woolly trousers and Inuit-style knits to complement his Nordic iceberg theme. But if the thought of a full-length faux fur coat is enough to make you squeal, if only because it makes you look triple the size, there’s plenty of winter coats that combine wool with a touch of faux fur around the collar or wrists for a sweet compromise. During his New York 2010/11 showing, Marc Jacobs chose all that was refined and old-world inspired. His winter pieces reminding us that style should be simple yet sophisticated. His coats were dominantly found in shades of cloudy grey and pearl and complete with quaint tailoring, with the emphasis on cashmere and wool. A nod to old-fashioned romance and classic styling dominated the AW’10 Louis Vuitton collection in Paris.

Jacobs opted for elegance using tweed, velvet and fur trimmings when it came to winter jackets. On the other hand, John Galliano, via Christian Dior, embraced woolly coats with ruffled collars and swinging-style jackets that pointed to an old Hollywood glamour. Teamed with frilly frocks and delicate silk chiffon dresses, his dreamy coat collection also supported more practical fashion choices. Prada’s little sister, Miu Miu, made her mark with sleek black coats this winter – all mimicking a 1960s retro prowess but always with a modern edge. It was all about high collars, elegant panel detailing and silver flower-embellished pieces placed on coats for added originality. There is definitely something for everyone this winter, from Donna Karan’s fur cuffs and collars if you are so inclined – while stoles and boleros are also popular, or biker-style leather jackets by Jean Paul Gaultier. Think leopard-print coats, thanks to Gucci, animal-print trench by Marc Jacobs, pea coats from Burberry, giant furs, tweeds and cashmere jackets from Michael Kors and military-style detailing found just about everywhere with an aviator theme stitched into its seams. For classic coat wearers, there are tweed trenches and swinging coats with a '60s flavour (think Audrey Hepburn) with tall collars, slim lines and delivered in sleek, modern cuts. When it comes to colours – black, grey, navy and caramel are the pick of the bunch – but if you want to stand out in the crowd, a pearly-white number could do the trick. \

Located more than 600 kilometres north-west of Adelaide, but reached relatively easily from Port Lincoln airport (a 40-minute flight from the SA capital), the tiny Kangaluna Camp makes a brilliant base for exploring the Gawler Ranges. Wheat farmer and local legend Geoff Scholz has been running safaris in the region since 1988 and knows the area intimately. Visitors can bunk down at his comfortable three-tent camp on the edge of the Gawler Ranges National Park, home to dramatic landscapes, the mirage-like Lake Gairdner (a vast salt basin silhouetted by domed mountains), and flocks of emus that dart across the whispering grasslands. Scholz also ventures further afield to the Eyre Peninsula’s other attractions, including the Coffin Bay oyster leases and the famed Baird Bay, where visitors swim with sea lions and dolphins.

Strictly for hard-core outdoors types, this 10-tent camp in an ultra-remote patch of the 30,000-hectare Swim Creek buffalo station is a no-frills experience to educate and exhilarate. Ian Hutton, Australia’s foremost field guide, teaches his charges everything from making fire with sticks to reading the luminous night sky of the Northern Territory. Living conditions are basic – two simple camp beds in each safari-style tent, a shared amenities block and no TV or phones. The lack of distractions allows guests to focus on what matters, such as the abundant wildlife, the stunning natural beauty of flooded melaleuca forests and endless fields of water lilies, and superb campfire feasts prepared by Hutton and his capable young assistant, Nick Martin. It’s a life-changing adventure; just don’t forget the Aeroguard.

If you seem cursed to spend more time with your MacBook than any paperback, help is at hand. DailyLit offers a convenient way to up your literary intake without budging from your computer chair. A new take on book serialisation, the site has a library of 1000 classic and contemporary titles ready to be delivered to your inbox each morning. While appearing to be dealing with vital work-related correspondence, you can instead be catching up on today’s instalment of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Most of the titles are free and can be read in bite-sized chunks on your desktop, laptop or mobile device. Crucially, instalments are designed to be read in fewer than five minutes, with the intention that reading can easily – and surreptitiously – be made part of your daily routine.

Exhibiting “recommended inappropriate books for kids”, the site features a range of titles the existence of which on bookshelves seems somewhat suspect. Certainly, most are unlikely to appeal to parents concerned for the mental wellbeing of their young offspring. Many of the illustrations are the stuff of nightmares, while the stories are often either surreal (Struwwelpeter) or morally dubious (Baby Mix Me A Drink). There are certainly chuckles to be found from some of the bizarre books archived here, but a visit is more likely to spark a sense of nostalgia for less-cloistered times, when children’s stories were allowed a dose of darkness. The carefully scanned pages are strangely beautiful exhibits, documenting changing tastes in children’s literature and artwork, while guest spots from contemporary authors discuss the impact of books from their own childhoods.

One WORlD, One tWitteR’BOOK ClUB \ twitter.com/1B1t2010

Yes, yes, we’re all busy. And that pile of books on the bedside table grows ever taller and ever more precarious. For those of us who buy more books than we will ever have time to read, podcasts such as this are a godsend. Unavoidable household chores or a crowded daily commute can be transformed into an entertaining literary experience. For this monthly podcast, New Yorker-published writers select and read their favourite stories from the magazine’s archives. Writers discuss their choices with fiction editor Deborah Treisman, offering analysis of their chosen author’s work, as well as insight into their own writing process. This month, Monica Ali (Brick Lane) read Joshua Ferris’ The Dinner Party, a bitterly snappy tale about a childless couple preparing dinner for their pregnant friends. Like the best of the readings, Ali’s subdued take makes for undemanding company while making your own dinner preparations. Like many podcasts, however, the main stumbling block is the reliance on talent whose, well, talents lie elsewhere. Treisman has a thin voice, best suited for print, while some authors hiccup and stumble through their readings so awkwardly as to cripple the tale they’re telling. Fortunately, the sheer range of readers and stories available means finding a better title is never too much of a challenge.

Book clubs are lovely ideas, in principle. Red wine, bottled beer, cultured chat. A whole month to luxuriate over a title, while jotting insightful commentary in the margins. But suddenly it’s the night before, you haven’t even started Anna Karenina, and you can’t understand why you suggested everyone read it in the first place. Suddenly, a relaxed literary evening has become yet another stressful event on your crowded calendar. Well, no more. In keeping with our fast-paced approach to literature, this book club demands only as much time as it takes to knock out 140 characters. “One Book, One Twitter” isn’t the first or largest of the Twitter book clubs, but is nevertheless proving very popular as “tweeps” the world over come together to discuss Neil Gaiman’s supernatural epic American Gods. The “big read” has been going for a few weeks now, but it’s not too late to join in, with discussion still grounded in the early chapters. An undoubted plus is that, unlike other book clubs, the author is on hand to answer your queries as you go. Gaiman is a keen twitterer and will be dropping in over the next couple of months for a bit of Q & A.

Finally, as an antidote to all this intellectualism, here’s a chance to create your own memorable nom-de-plume, as envisioned by noted author Sarah Palin. If you’ve ever envied the rogueish and all-American monikers of Palin’s offspring (Trig, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Track), you can now claim your own. Use with caution, however. Your future offspring is unlikely to thank you. \

Siblings’ French connection for another “My New Life In France’’ travel-escape book. An ageing London antique dealer, fearful that his business has been permanently damaged by the global financial crisis, decides to follow his older sister’s lead and move to rural France. The dealer pictures his retirement spent renovating a farmhouse in the mountainous Cevennes region in southern France and filling it with his “beloveds”: the fine objects he has acquired over years of collecting. A summer evening’s glass of pastis in the garden, regular visits with his treasured sister, Veronica: 64-yearold Anthony Verey can see a new and happy life evolving. But with Tremain (right), stories are never that cute. In this, her 11th novel, the author delivers a deeply disturbing tale in which the outsiders realise they will never fit in, while insiders fear they will never be able to escape. The Vereys and their French counterparts Aramon Lunel and his younger sister Audrun come from very different backgrounds. But at the heart of both brother-sister relationships is significant trauma brought about by badly

“The book I’ve recently read and enjoyed is The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris. It’s kind of a bizarre cross between Moon Palace by Paul Auster and Into the Wild by Jon Krauker. Tim is a highly regarded corporate lawyer afflicted with an unknown condition, which compels him to literally walk out of his office/home/life. His walking episodes come out of the blue, with devastating consequences for his health, his career, and his family. As Tim’s life spirals out of control, you can’t help but cringe at his fall from grace, yet you are strangely with him on his escape from the safety, security and bonds of daily life in the city.

Their lives collide when a local real-estate agent takes Anthony to Mas Lunel, Aramon’s rundown family home. The sick and alcohol-affected Aramon has been seduced by the high prices being paid by foreigners for a plot of French soil. Verey expresses interest in buying Mas Lunel, and Aramon is excited. Not Audrun, however, who fears her small bungalow next to the main house might be bulldozed. The scene is set for a dramatic outcome. In an interview earlier this year, Tremain, whose The Road Home won the 2008 Orange Prize for Fiction, said: “I wanted to write about how people try to make sense of the last third of their lives. You don’t know how much longer you’ve got. You start to look back and see the shape of your whole life. It sounds depressing, but it’s important.” Trespass is an important book that deserves the accolades and positive reviews of recent weeks. We watch its increasing word-of-mouth popularity with interest. \

When Shaw traces the evil Waller to a place in rural France, he runs into secret agent Reggie Campion, a woman hell-bent on destroying Waller for her own reasons.

In her latest work, Allende sets her story against the backdrop of Haiti’s 18th-century slave trade and the French plantation-owner culture that dominated the island’s social and political structures. Zarite Sedella is the beautiful daughter of an African slave and a white sailor whose life becomes entwined with the married Frenchman in whose household she works. It is a story of love, abuse and family ties but, thankfully, Allende has added a healthy dose of historical pepper to elevate her story beyond Period Romance status.

British correspondent based in New York Alistair Cooke is probably best remembered for his weekly BBC broadcast Letters From America, which ran for 58 years until his retirement in 2004.

In this superb collection of writings and broadcasts, Cooke traces Hollywood’s swift development and film’s evolution from an entertainment to an art form.


REVIEW \ UNDER THE RADAR

FILM GREENBERG \ RELEASE MAY 27, RATED MA, 107 MINUTES This low-key comedy drama from director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) sees Ben Stiller try his hand at greater depth. As such, the pratfalls of There’s Something About Mary and Meet the Fockers are replaced by a nuanced, thoughtful performance. It’s a help and a hindrance that his character is terminally superficial. Roger Greenberg is trying to do nothing, avoiding any meaningful connections while recovering from a nervous breakdown. Simultaneously self-obsessed and self-deluding, he transfers his shunned complications on to those around him, including Rhys Ifan’s recovering alcoholic Ivan and broken-hearted nanny Florence (Greta Gerwig). Easy to like but difficult to love, the film largely survives on the likeability of its cast. Greenberg’s prevaricating and search for distraction means there is little in the way of coherent plot, but Baumbach’s script captures the awkwardness of half-hearted relationships all too convincingly, as each character’s own problems leave them incapable of listening to each other. In lesser hands, this might render the cast utterly unsympathetic, but Stiller ensures we can still care for Greenberg even as he succeeds in irritating everybody else.

Surely few of us tune in seriously looking for some choice new additions to our iPod? No, it’s all about the tackiness of these funny foreigners and the endearing, deathless patter of the hosts, as they attempt to parade their dubious English skills. Eurovision is a big hitter for SBS, so it’s understandable it ditched the BBC commentary after Terry Wogan retired his slightly sozzled sneer, and instead assigned two of their famous faces to cover the event. However, it’s hard not to feel something is now missing. Perhaps Julia Zemiro and Sam Pang are a little too earnest and lacking in snark, or perhaps an Australian perspective simply doesn’t work. After all, laughing at Johnny Foreigner JAMIE LIDELL \ COMPASS (WARP) has long been something the British do best, and LCD SOUNDSYSTEM \ THIS IS Wogan’s BBC replacement, Graham Norton, last HAPPENING (PARLOPHONE) year managed the near-impossible feat of being winningly charming and delightfully bitchy. They grow up so fast. Dance music, as we know it, is edging into its third decade and, as you’d hope, is showing signs of maturing. This month sees the release of two records from opposite sides of the Atlantic, both showing just how clever pop’s hedonistic young nephew has become. Londoner Jamie Lidell’s fourth LP Compass stretches the definition of electronica, taking a freeform approach to genre, adopting and discarding sounds at an astonishing rate. Crooner Lidell has the sort of soulful voice your grandmother might fancy, so compensates with the sort of edgy instrumentation – glitches, distorted bass and dirty beats – that will have her turning down the hearing aid. The eclecticism of Beck (who contributes on songwriting and production fronts) is fused with the confident swagger of Prince, arriving at a unique brand of underwater funk. What’s most remarkable, perhaps, is how coherently the album plays out. For all its diversity, the seams rarely show. Equally diverse and surprising is the third and apparently final record from New York DJ James Murphy (aka LCD Soundsystem). Radio-friendly

The wonderfully seductive nostalgia of Mad Men is the focus for discussion at the first of three Live in the Studio sessions, which will see TV experts and enthusiasts gather to share their love of all things small screen. Writer and broadcast Sian Prior chairs a panel analysing not only the glitz and glamour of our mad ad men’s world but also the underlying social issues of this superb, layered series. Future sessions, to be held in June and July, promise to delve into sci-fi revivals and teen dramas.

MUSIC

TOP PICK

first single Drunk Girls is a poor ambassador for the LP, its dumb-but-fun singalong containing little of the slow, sprawling paranoia that dominates elsewhere. Opener Dance Yrself Clean, for instance, takes its time to crawl from subdued self-pity to pulling shapes on the dance floor. And even then, those shapes look a little scary. The tunes are superficially thrilling, but a raw, dark heart beats beneath. Influences range from Berlin-era Bowie to David Byrne-via-Gary Numan, but Murphy has never sounded more like himself, nor less sure that he likes what that means. That we can still have so much fun at his expense is testament to his deft talent, able to smuggle complex emotion beneath the simplicity of top club fare. \

The Henry review – a help or a hinderance?

(LILY DALEY)

than 30 per cent of small businesses in More Australian are owned by women, which equates to 579,000 businesses, according to the

June 2007 figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. One of the big challenges for small business is keeping up to date with changing government regulations particularly on tax and employment. Small businesses do not have the luxury of finance or human resources departments to keep them abreast of changes. So when reports such as the Henry review are released, accompanied by hype and media coverage, many small-business operators think, “I should be across the details”. The reality is few have the time. In this case, however, there is no need to fret. The Henry report is not the grand tax reform it was touted to be. It does, however, make 138 recommendations and some of the changes announced in it, and the Government’s response, will affect business. Small businesses may feel the impact more than large ones. The big mining companies are making a lot of noise about the proposed 40 per cent tax on their super profits; they’re so loud that I believe more decisions are likely to come. While many small businesses owned by women are non-employing, as they are operated solely by the proprietor, about 27 per cent have one to four employees and about 12 per cent employ five to 19. Although not specifically recommended by the

Henry report, one of the big changes resulting from it, which will hit small businesses, is the decision by the Government to increase the superannuation guarantee levy from the current 9 per cent to 12 per cent. The change will not have an immediate impact as it will be phased in over seven years starting on July 1, 2013. It is, however, a cost that will be paid for by employees and needs to be budgeted for. Three per cent may not seem like a lot, but for small businesses, whose markets are often very price sensitive, passing on this extra cost to customers could be difficult. A key positive of the report for small businesses is that the Government announced an expansion of the capital allowance provisions for them. The change is twofold. First, small businesses will now be entitled to an immediate write-off for new assets purchased up to a value of $5000. Previously only assets of less than $1000 were entitled to an immediate write-off. Secondly, assets of more than $1000 were required to be depreciated (written-off) using one of two rates according to their effective life. The administration of depreciation tables for these purposes is cumbersome and costly. Assets greater than $5000 (excluding buildings) will be pooled and depreciated at a rate of 30 per cent a year. These changes will assist with the cash flow of small businesses. Where these items are financed, the cost can be spread over several years while the tax benefit will be received in the first year.

There is, however, a catch. The new provisions do not come into play until July 1, 2012. So you will need to keep those depreciation tables going for another couple of years. The second bonus for business is that the report recommended cutting the company tax rate to 25 per cent. The Government responded by reducing the rate for “small business entities” from 30 per cent to 28 per cent from July 1, 2012. It is not clear which businesses will qualify as a “small business entity” for the purposes of the tax, and the benefit for small businesses is really just a timing difference as the tax rate for all business will fall by 1 per cent a year from 2013 bringing it to 28 per cent by July 1, 2014. However, paying less tax is paying less tax and that is a bonus for all businesses. So, on the one hand the Government is helping small business by reducing the tax rate and increasing immediate deductions, but on the other the tax benefits derived may be clawed back by the rise in wage costs through the super increase. It is disappointing that I am unable to inform you of the simplification of the tax system for small business, which supposedly cuts red tape and includes a national payroll tax system and a uniform workers’ compensation legislation. Let’s hope there is more to come. \

review\ in the frame

Master your domain times has someone on TV how many uttered the line, “Kids, don’t try this at home”? The message is clear: without training

and practice, you can easily screw up. Then along come the do-it-yourself programs, with all sorts of tips to upgrade our homes. If people flood an apartment with dodgy plumbing, well, chances are insurance will cover it. But we cannot insure against the molestation of our senses, which occurs when we are confronted with the results of DIY art. Crimes against aesthetics are an everyday occurrence. A trip to pick up the shopping will subject most people to a relentless assault on the senses. Fifty years since its publication, pretty well everything Robin Boyd nailed in his blistering book The Australian Ugliness is still with us. We live in an environment that is anything but harmonious; clashing architectural styles, a miasma of planning controls, traffic signage, advertising and such make much of our surrounds raucous if not shabby. But that’s no excuse for bringing the blight into our homes. In a sense, all art is do-it-yourself. Everyone with a career as an artist has done so by saying to themselves, if others can make art, then they can too. Pablo Picasso was fond of making loose copies of old master paintings – works of Velasquez, El Greco and Rembrandt, along with more modern masters such as Delacroix and Courbet. Asked why, Pablo somewhat disingenuously quipped that it was the best way of getting the art he couldn’t afford.

Making copies of recognised work has long been a way for inexperienced artists to learn the mechanics. Mature artists often profit from the exercise as well, but for most, the reference points for their art practice come from their earlier work. Motifs and themes evolve over time; sometimes an artist will retrace their steps and explore with refreshed interest ideas abandoned earlier in their career. The results incorporate a lifetime’s development and thinking about art, giving what are often rapidly done pieces heft and depth; they reward concentrated viewing, forcing us to lift our game. Paintings whipped up in a few minutes with a roller or two and a few trays of paint may look like art. It will certainly serve as interior decoration; a lot of stuff that makes its way into the commercial gallery scene falls into this category. But if we put it on our walls we’re subjecting ourselves to needless aesthetic poverty. It is possible to make good art, even late in life, when other creative folk have run out of energy or ideas – think Rosalie Gascoigne and Emily Kame Kngwarreye. If you don’t have it in you, don’t despair; there’s a lot of talent out there needing patronage – maybe yours. In our postmodern world, picking the good stuff can be confusing. But just try this simple test at home – look at what’s on your walls. If there’s nothing, shame on you. And if what’s there is only messing with your eyes, and not your head, it’s time to upgrade. \

Wallace is one of a number of artists working locally who use cast-off materials in their practice. Built with cable ties and decayed and frayed rope and string salvaged from the shoreline, her sculptures directly reference the organic. Employing construction techniques that owe much to traditional basket making, many of her works resemble pods or cocoons; others bristle like sea anemones. Some of the pieces incorporate the remains of marine creatures, with encrustations of molluscs or coral on the decomposing plastics. Wallace was in the recent aRtECYCLE sculpture exhibition at the Incinerator Arts Complex.

What goes online stays online

modest dwelling somewhere near the middle surrounded by plenty of room for childhood adventure, barbecues and cooling off under the sprinkler. Nowadays it seems the extra space has been brought indoors, away from prying eyes, to enlarge our indoor living. It’s interesting that this life of ours in private hasn’t necessarily translated to the online world, where many seem quite content to post all manner of personal things without too much thought about who might get their hands on it at some point in the future. The battle for privacy looms large in the corporate world, where Facebook and Google (to name but two) face constant user concerns about when and how the information gathered is used and broadcast. And a rather large question mark hangs over just how trustworthy such corporations really are, or whether they (and their twentysomething executives) really do “get” the privacy debate. On one day in February, Google announced and launched a new feature called Buzz as part of its widespread email service. Buzz (like Facebook) is seen as one of myriad social-networking technologies, allowing people to keep in touch and share their experiences without having to manually notify their friends every time they do something. The automated nature of social-networking systems is a wonderful boon or a nightmare of privacy infringement, depending on your perspective. Of most concern (to those who have concerns) is that the method of sharing information, and what details are shared, are constantly been altered as the technology giants compete for users. Even if you’re happy with how your personal information and movements around the neighbourhood are being stored and handled now, there are many reasons to question whether your chosen Technology Giant will look after you and your reputation in the future.

Recent announcements from Facebook have caused lots of interest in the tech press – both excitement and trepidation. Regardless of whether you love, loathe or ignore Facebook, it’s important to understand how your personal details, preferences, photos, experiences, location and connection to others can be viewed and shared. The whole point of social-networking sites is to build and maintain connections within that site so that your viewing and clicking can generate revenue for them. Facebook wants everything to link back to Facebook, Google to Google. Whether you want to be seen in a given situation, or overheard saying that thing about that guy, is incidental to them. As humans mature, our interactions with others are moderated by experience, understanding, empathy and social awareness. Children and young adults see things differently, and many will simply say they don’t care what someone else knows about them and won’t understand the implications of a life lived online until something comes back to bite them in years to come. There is a shift in the level of privacy expected, and – in an environment of prank calls, hidden cameras and gossip – those who post embarrassing or damaging information are simply seen as stupid. Until it happens to them. Whether it’s Facebook’s “like” button or Google’s Street View capturing you where you shouldn’t be, our life in the open is subject to record. What all internet users – young and old – should keep in mind is one simple rule: if you don’t want anyone to know, don’t put it online, because it might be online forever. In December, Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, was on CNBC saying, “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.” Or, perhaps, just not telling anyone about it. \

Albert Park ... and please pardon my nit wit

A

mum from my daughter’s school told me she was recently in a business meeting when a nit crawled from her hairline, down across her forehead. Not sure why I was thinking about this story as I sat in a café in Albert Park – it could possibly be because I’d just spent two hours at the hairdressers, in a state of fright and flight readiness, waiting for the young colourist to find an unhatched egg in my own hair. Nits are all over the school at the moment, which means the mums get them, too. There are no nits on the heads of mothers in Albert Park. And I’m pretty sure there’d be no fleas on the spoodles, either. Albert Park is so lovely even the cars on the street are colour co-ordinated. In the world of “suburb brand”, buying in to Albert Park offers tennis-playing young families the ultimate starting place. Mark my words; they’ll all end up in Beaumaris. This you can tell because the mums are already wearing multitextured layered knits and their hair is just one cut away from being a bob. (I’m not so sure about the Albert Park dads – unlike other inner-city suburbs, you don’t see any hanging out in coffee shops and wearing baby slings during the week – they’re all busy working as financial advisers in the banks). And they won’t be leaving Albert Park because it’s not nice – or because it doesn’t fit the idea of who they are – the Albert Park brand is all over them. They’ll pack up and sell eventually because it’s just so hard to fit all

Review\ my view

the kids’ Seed outfits into those small wardrobes in the terrace, and after the architect finished with the back extension, there’s just no room for a pool. Which is why lovely Albert Park is the Taj Mahal of retirement villages – it’s for people who have downsized their knitwear and kid collections so those little single-front terraces aren’t a problem. A friend’s friend had to sell her family home in St Vincent’s Place because of some bad share decisions, and I don’t think you’d ever get over the heartache of that. Imagine having to drag the Royal Doulton and Wedgewood and Lladro out into the cold, away from their rightful home. And all those missed opportunities. I can’t contemplate the disappointment of not being able to just duck around the corner to pick up some Moroccan chicken that no one will ever be able to tell is from the deli. Or being able to meet Marg for a quick latte at Husk before racing off to get the terriers from the walker. Albert Park really is lovely. It’s a comfy blend of grey bobs and business – but the business side is subtle. It’s more tailored jeans and puffy jackets than suits – everyone is bescarfed, booted, and busy running from the deli to the bottle shop and then over the road to pick up the nit-free kids. And I really do have a better understanding now, after coffee in Albert Park, of why all that knitwear is made – I did always wonder. \

Review\ GaRdeninG The daddy: The Japanese mountain lily, L. auratum var platyphyllum is a parent of many old and new cultivars.

The fairest of them all

i

f imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then the lily must have many admirers that are also called “lily”, but should not be answering to the name. To cut to the chase, a lily is not a lily unless it belongs to the genus Lilium. Hence daylilies, peace lilies, canna and calla lilies are not truly lilies, being Hemerocallis, Spathiphyllum, Canna and Zantedeschia respectively. More important, it is time to plant lilies and other bulbs, although now it’s a bit late for tulips. Generally, bulbs should be planted by the end of April, before the soil gives up its warmth to winter. Although true lilies belong to a genus of only about 100 species, there are now thousands of hybrids, which are broadly separated into groups according to parentage and flower shape. Lilies in the Asiatic group, for example, are colourful hybrids that bloom early, have smooth-edged petals and are non-scented. The Oriental hybrids, on the other hand, have highly scented flowers, bloom later and have ruffled petals. In all there are about seven different groups of hybrids that will keep Lilium enthusiasts busy for a very long time. For the suburban gardener, though, it boils down to colour and size, where to plant and when to plant. Specific planting details should come with the bulbs you purchase, but generally lilies like well-drained locations where the sun will filter through, or part shade. Plant bulbs as soon as you can after purchase otherwise they will dry out and deteriorate from exposure. In the ground, lilies are best left undisturbed until they become overcrowded. When that happens, lift the cluster of bulbs and separate the mothers from the babies, and replant. In pots or tubs, keep them well space; remember these are

plants that can grow to a metre or taller, so keep plant/pot proportions in mind. This season, many new lilies are set to join the ranks of the well-tested Christmas lilies (L. longiflorum) and tigers (L. lancifolium syn tigrinum) in Melbourne’s gardens. Among the newcomers is Dorothy, a L. speciosum cultivar initially raised from seed in Kalorama. The plant will grow to about one metre, says Shirley Tonkin, from the Bryan H. Tonkin nursery (tonkinsbulbs.com.au). Dorothy has reflexed, hot-pink petals fading to a white centre and maroon markings. Another first-timer is Angel Rose, which has deep pink flowers with a spotted white halo around its nectary. Meanwhile, five new Asiatic lilies from Holland, recalibrated over two seasons to help them adapt in Australia, will also make their debut this season. Lilies in the Matisse collection, from the Tesselaar online nursery (tesselaar.net. au) are two-toned, with unusual markings on their petals and only one, Dimension, is single-tone deep red, says Rachael Pearce, Tesselaar’s marketing co-ordinator. From these two seasoned lily growers I snatched a quick list of what to expect from lilies. The lily with the most fragrant flower would be the Christmas lily and its cultivars. The one with the largest flower would be the famed Japanese mountain lily, L. auratum var platyphyllum, which looks like a hybrid oriental, but is actually a species indigenous to Japan. The tallest lily is also this Japanese giant, which can grow to 180 centimetres. Which is the shortest lily, I asked. “They’d be the ones you don’t water regularly,” says Rachael Pearce. So treat your lilies well and they will reward you accordingly. \

hat struck me the first time I visited Invermate, a gracious Edwardian home in East Malvern, was the era-appropriate ambience of its garden. The current owners are only the fourth family to live there since it was built for Donald MacMillan in 1907. My return visit followed a viewing of the Rupert Bunny exhibition at the Ian Potter Centre, Federation Square, where I’d been immersed in the graceful era of the Belle Epoque. Bunny, who was living in Paris and exhibiting at the salons early last century, became the first Australian to have work purchased by the French state. His poetic paintings depict women, relaxed and dreaming, wearing elegant floating gowns and adorned with roses – in their hair, on hats or delicately held between pale fingers. At Invermate, my reverie continued. When Barb and Tom Yuncken bought this home 20 years ago, they set about putting their own stamp on the garden. Admirers of the English gardener Gertrude Jekyll, they broadened the beds and added curves to mirror those in the house’s fretwork. They planted colourful borders and created garden pictures that could also be enjoyed from the interior. There was one feature that required little modification. The towering, 75-year-old Indian cedar (Deodar) was enhanced by the simple addition of a seat built around its base by family friend, Charles. It is a sheer joy in every season as beneath its magnificent drooping branches Barb has planted helleborus, liriope, clivia, native violets and spring bulbs. The tennis court, which is bordered on two sides by the house, has a trompe l’oeil on the end wall. Painted 15 years ago by friend and artist Annabelle Farquharson, it depicts a cricket match, a clever reference to the sports oval in nearby Central Park and an activity shared by the sons of both families. Barb has a sepia photo (given to her by a previous owner, Edith Tatterson) of two gentlemen under a parasol watching a game of tennis here. Barb gives credit to their landscape gardener, Murray Jones, “for his wonderful ability to create tranquil spaces”. This is not a re-creation of an Edwardian garden. In fact, the past few years have seen the necessary inclusion of native and drought-tolerant plants, which has had the added benefit of attracting native birds including, quite recently, a little kingfisher. When the garden was open earlier this year, Barb was delighted to see visitors enjoying it from the various seats she had incorporated into her design, just as she hoped they would. I was disappointed not to find a white swan on the swimming pool, but, as I was leaving, there were two fashionably dressed women sitting on Charles’ seat beneath the Indian cedar and a magpie, perched atop the tree, warbling my departure. Gertrude and Rupert would approve. \ judithhughes53@gmail.com


Review\ yoga me well

(Istockphoto / thInkstock)

My body’s a temple no surprise that yoga is so popular; it’s we are, after all, in the midst of a spiritual renaissance.

In 1901, a whopping 96.1 per cent of Australians were anchored to a particular religion while just 0.4 per cent had none, according to census data. By 2006, only 63.8 per cent were packaging their god, while 18.7 per cent declared they had none – that’s a lot of people weighing anchor. As a spiritual path, yoga must be doing something right to have so many agnostics and lapsed churchgoers rolling out their mats each week. One reason people gravitate towards it so readily is because they can hide their spiritual aspirations – and their existential vacuums – behind a bad back, a desperate need to contact their toes and the after-work stress detox. Once in a class, it’s the stayers who secretly hope this “my body is a temple” fever can work wonders for them too, though it often takes a while to realise it. At first, only 18 per cent of the 4000 yoga practitioners in the RMIT University “Yoga in Australia Survey” (the world’s largest yoga survey) saw it as a “spiritual path” or “personal development” tool. But after practising, that figure topped the chakra charts at 41 per cent.

Diy faith

As religious conviction waivers, yoga studios flourish on the corners where churches (and pubs) once provided sanctuary. It’s not that yoga is the new religion, it’s more that cherry picking your faith is the order of the day – a bushel of Buddhism, a peck of Patanjali, a chapter of Eckhart Tolle and a pinch of Oprah – and yoga’s countless traditions offer the confused seeker plenty of philosophical choice. There’s Patanjali’s classic Yoga Sutras offering the yamas and niyamas as your travel guide through life and the notion that a divine spark exists within us as part of a much larger creative or intelligent force. There’s Tantra, which far from being sex-obsessed, homogenises that great spirit – it’s in everything, so embrace the divine aspect in that flat tyre, that wily cat, that arthritic knee, that dulcet dawn. Advaita Vedanta goes a quantum leap further, saying that the physical self and world are an illusion, and there is only one divine reality. So sip from one tradition, nestle into another, then shake it all up by diving elsewhere. These days, it’s acceptable to adopt the bits that resonate best. And if that leads to more self-aware, self-responsible people with expansive values, it can only be a good thing.

my boDy is a temple?

Religion, for me, always felt more like an intellectual exercise. I found no comfort on a hard pew in a drafty church on Sunday mornings.

The recitation of prayers in arcane language only cured insomnia, and drab hymns failed to hoist me aloft on a wave of vibratory joy. My closest connection to God came in our private chats, which were far chummier than turning to the oration of some ornately robed priest at his marble altar. I wanted a Bluetooth connection to God. Yoga, meanwhile, offered something entirely experiential. Regular use of yoga techniques such as pranayama (breath work), physical postures (asana), song (chanting) and yoga nidra (relaxation) leads to that serene lily pad within that activates a reassurance about the complexities of life. Through meditation, the hum of the Big Spirit filters in, and lingers. Slowly that very god-ness shifts into our very bones, our physical being. Then we understand how the body becomes the temple. Once my mind learnt to direct tendrils of breath through the body, I became calm, concretised muscles softened, extending limbs felt more like chewing gum. The gradual unblocking of my body through regular work led to a lightness of energy, while meditation delivered that pervading sense of “it’s all gonna be OK”. As for yoga nidra (end of class relaxation), like most stayers, I am ever eager to waft into that expansiveness where the body disconnects into a floaty oneness.

spiRit, spiRit, who’s got the spiRit?

If you’ve reached that point in your practice where you’re noticing terrific physical benefits but feeling like this yoga caper promised much, much more, it sounds like spiritual guidance is missing. Changing teachers to broaden your horizons is hardly like excommunicating yourself from religion. There are plenty of traditions that adeptly weave yogic perspectives into classes, such as the Gita, Satyananda, Shiva and Anusara traditions to name a few, and there are plenty of individual teachers who do not. It’s the application of yoga philosophy from the mat to daily life that ultimately brings a true sense of direction and meaning to your life. So don’t shy away from asking prospective teachers if they tuck a little spirit into your yoga hour. \

Early-morning plunge is sure to break the ice was a pretty humiliating: first they laughed at IT my board shorts and then they sniggered at my previous swimming accomplishments. By the time I

ICEBERGERS

The club has a series of year-round open-water courses ranging from “morning glory” over 250 metres, “no brainer” over 1.5 kilometres and the “big course – out to the reef marker” over two kilometres. Teabags are occasionally spotted – one quick dip and out – but essentially those who swim like distance and open-water swimming. Paul Percy and John Olsen have introduced the Anzac course in recent years, which is 5.4 kilometres.

jumped off Brighton Pier into the 15-degree bay, my blood was boiling. I got off on the wrong foot with the Icebergers, a group of 60 and 70-year-olds who swim every day at Brighton Pier in their “budgie smugglers” and togs for fun. I was expecting a collection of the finest eccentrics who race to the water, jump in, and scream for a while before retreating to a sauna. I was so wrong. All 20 Icebergers whipped me in their home waters and made years of squad training and stroke-correction classes look pretty useless. I got the wooden spoon for the 1.5-kilometre swim around Brighton breakwall, and I didn’t see it coming. I’m no chump in the pool. I was vice-captain of the Westbourne swimming squad in the early 1990s and I’m a year or two away from becoming “shark bait”, a milestone you reach by swimming 10 Pier to Pubs. But none of that stopped my shellacking. I even had a head start and was one of the first to have their breath taken away when I jumped off Brighton Pier. I started swimming through shivers and it took about 200 metres before I eased into a comfortable swimming rhythm. I was set for the 1.5-kilometre swim, my breathing was right and my freestyle stroke was back. As I reached the end of Brighton breakwall, a steady stream of Icebergers began filing past me. Through the splashes I could see torsos; some had scars from heart bypasses, but most were attached to heads that had huge grins peaking through moustaches. The steady stream of moustaches, grey hair and bones kept passing me. “Are you OK?” I would hear from time to time. We reached a shipping beacon and, like seagulls, they were all bobbing around it waiting for me. It seemed an odd place to meet on a Friday afternoon. “You’ve reached Klaus’ pole and you’re halfway,” proudly beamed Klaus Newhouse, 74. “It’s my pole.” It was at that moment, I realised that the Icebergers are not only mad but also super-fit. That was the last I saw of them in the water. They swam off at light speed, leaving a huge foamy wake and I had no chance of catching them. In the distance, they were already at the finish line, and some were climbing up the pier’s ladder to the sauna. It would have been a lonely 800-metre swim, if not for Hugh O’Connor, who stuck with me stroke through stroke through the harbor. He tried to console my spanking. “It is all about consistency and getting used to the conditions,” he said. “The key to winter swimming is to start in early autumn and be consistent with it because if you come in the middle of winter you won’t survive. “Now is the time to start, you don’t want to leave it too much later.’’ It was a long walk back down the pier to the steam room. I was ready for a heckling as I approached veteran member John Lockart but instead received a friendly slap on the back. “As you have realised today, the Icebergers are not just a social group, they are serious open-water swimmers capable of prodigious distances as opposed to battery hens swimming around in baths,” he said. “These blokes and ladies are serious swimmers.

They go out in the middle of winter, no matter what size swell or weather conditions. “The end result is this: metabolism is up, and we all eat like horses and sleep like babies.” Lockart also had some advice for AFL clubs. “You need to get the players to get in and under the water. Standing in it thigh-deep doesn’t do anything. They need to get in and swim in it.” Rob Hooper has been swimming at the 100-year-old club since the 1990s and said it is not uncommon to have 50 people out for a swim on a Sunday morning. “I’ve always been a swimmer and swim at Black Rock every morning and have done so for the last 40 years,” he said. “My favourite swim for the year is the New Year’s Eve one when we swim out at quarter to 12 swim to Klaus’ pole and wait for the fireworks.” \

DESIGN A beautiful art-deco apartment in Elwood highlights interior designer Charlotte Coote’s principles of design – comfort, opulence and pared-back simplicity, writes FrANCESCA CArTEr.

Above: Interior designer Charlotte Coote. Top: The lounge room at Charlotte Coote’s Elwood apartment.

ith plenty of sunlight flooding the room, Charlotte Coote’s new interior-design project – a two-bedroom art-deco apartment in Elwood – comes to life. “When Amelia (Charlotte’s sister) first bought the property, the interior was hideous. It had these bright, mustard-coloured sofas and it had a very funny smell,” Charlotte says. “We really wanted to add to it by creating an interior which complemented the original architecture.” Amelia and Charlotte, who are both creative in their own right, spent time stripping the apartment back to highlight its original art-deco fittings. These included the intricate period detail of the cornices, ornate ceilings, the leadlight windows and the freestanding columns. The apartment is a true reflection of Charlotte’s innate style. It has classic furniture pieces that she designed herself, including her porcelain cockatoo lights, her 1930’s dining-room chairs and her uniquely shaped bedside tables. Charlotte started her own eponymous design company when she returned from Ireland in 2007. While overseas, Charlotte worked as a project manager for Future Laboratory in London, one of the world’s top trend-forecasting agencies. “It was awesome experience. There were just 10 of us in the beginning, working in the basement of a house in East London, and all of the normal rules of the office just didn’t apply. You were allowed to drink and smoke so long as you got your work done. It is a very forward-thinking, cutting-edge company.” In London, Charlotte missed the open spaces. When her father, international designer John Coote, rang her from Ireland to offer her a job in his business Coote & Co, it was an offer she couldn’t refuse. “Dad rang and said he was starting up his own product business to run beside his existing interior design business. Its design focus was creating classic contemporary bespoke range of lighting, porcelain,

“we Really wanted to add to it (the apaRtment) by cReating an inteRioR which complemented the oRiginal aRchitectuRe.” furniture, textiles, glassware and interior-design objects and accessories.” In Ireland, Charlotte and her father worked on designing and creating products for Coote & Co that were handmade, exclusive and designed with an understanding of proportion and scale, such as bespoke porcelain imported from Sri Lanka and hand-knotted rugs from India. Charlotte also worked on the restoration of the her father’s 18th-century house by revamping the floors, the high, vaulted ceilings and the garden. Located in the Bellamont Forest Estate, the house was designed in 1729 by architect Sir Edward Lovett Pearce and is regarded as one of Ireland’s treasures. In her Melbourne interiors showroom in Armadale, Charlotte draws from her international experience in classical design to create her interiors business, which ranges from everything from her own Irish bed linen and cashmere range to exclusive textiles and accessories for interiors and design consultation. \

Now we’re cooking: The kitchen at the Elwood apartment.

Colour

Comfort

Colour lays the foundation for the styling success of every room – it is a vital part of the first impression. Charlotte recommends selecting muted tones, as this will allow potential buyers the chance to connect with your home. “You want to keep it quite neutral; you are trying to make the property available to as many people as possible and you might think that a fluorescent-pink shag-pile rug is fabulous in the living room, but a recently retired couple looking for a quiet apartment may not.” If you are deciding to change the colour of your rooms, Charlotte believes that one of the key inspirations should be the outside environment. “I think the important thing is to look outside and see what is going on out there.”

Comfort reflects lifestyle. “It is very important to know how people use the room, how they use a space, how they entertain ... we always ask.” Charlotte believes one of the main problems with contemporary design is that it does not cater for practicality. She suggests that simple pieces such as the living-room couch need to have a familiar, comfortable appeal. “A square, rigid, hard-cornered sofa might look interesting, but when you come home from work you really want a beautiful, comfortable, hand-sprung sofa, one that you can relax on.”

l

l l

l l

Keep walls, objects, upholstery and curtains in soft and neutral tones but introduce texture. Compliment the natural environment in which you live. Continue the theme of colour in each room, as this provides flow and continuity. Add colour with photo frames, paintings and flowers. Colour co-ordinate your bookshelf.

four key elementS “When selling your property, it is important that it looks its best,” says Charlotte, who has worked on renovating houses to sell in the past. “Eliminate over-the-top, bold and risky design ideas as they will frighten away your potential buyers, who may not be able to see beyond what they see at an open-for-inspection day.” Charlotte suggests keeping your house fresh, clean and simple. “Try to appeal to a broader buying market by creating a pared-back look, aimed to help potential buyers access their own creative process within the space.”

l l

l l l l

Show off your space as a place for relaxation, entertainment and conversation. Make your home look inviting by turning on lights. Prepare the home for different temperatures of the day – light fires, turn on air-conditioning. Buy new towels for the bathroom. Stock kitchen with food, e.g. delicious pastries on a cake stand, tea in a pot. Set the dining-room table. Bake muffins before the open for inspection so the house has a homely smell.

ProPortion

SPaCe

When buyers inspect your home, you want each room to have balance and unity – this is achieved in the relationship between objects and space. When she was styling her own apartment, Charlotte designed a lot of the furniture to complement the art-deco features – the plaster ceilings and the fireplace. “I saw a picture of Marlene Dietrich lounging on a 1930s directors chair and I thought that would be fabulous for our apartment, so I adapted them and did it in white so it was nice and fresh. It was choosing a classical idea and putting a contemporary edge on it.” In the lounge room, Charlotte put up an earthy-coloured Robert Doble painting so that it would complement the 18th-century French oak table that also highlights the original fireplace. She then added a large rug for more texture.

Space is the most important aspect to a room because it is how colour, proportion, harmony, balance and texture all relate to each other. “It is about looking at a property’s best features, understanding them and then going about enhancing them. Same goes for understanding your property’s worst features, understand them then go about improving them,” says Charlotte. In her own apartment, she describes how she put in a large mirror that appeared to double the room in size and created extra natural light.

Where height may be an issue, install vertical-striped curtains as they provides an illusion of height. Re-grout bathroom tiles. If you want to disguise floors, choose a fabulous mat, or lime wash or paint your floorboards. Add mirrors, as this creates an illusion of more space and also enhances light in otherwise smaller spaces. Depersonalise your space by removing notices, bills, photos, and other evidence of your daily life. Decluttering will maximise spaciousness. Make sure everything is clean – remove stains, paint chips and cobwebs.

Flying the Flag For KeW Salute a Glenferrie Road landmark piece of Melbourne’s grand history, writes MARIA HARRIS.

T

he flag is flying at Comaques, in Kew, one of Melbourne’s landmark mansions. Running the flag up the flagpole on the top of the tower seems to be one of the duties that go with owning this statement property. On July 14, the French flag flies to mark Bastille Day; a host of flags mark other national days. When a family member has a birthday, the “Happy Birthday” flag is hoisted. Checking the flag at Comaques is something of a ritual for children and their parents on the Glenferrie Road school run every morning. The name, Comaques, seems to be derived from a French colloquial word meaning enormous or substantial. They got that right. Set on 1162 square metres, it has a grand formal entry, lounge, separate dining room, granite kitchen, atrium meals or informal dining, family room, rumpus room, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, bar with under-bench fridges, oven and dishwasher, and swimming pool and spa. Comaques is regarded as one of Melbourne’s best-preserved Italianate Victorian mansions. Built in 1891, the two-storey house has an impressive square tower flanked by deep bay windows. The house was designed by architect Alfred White for his own use. By 1900, a warehouse man named Harry Lister was living at Comaques. It was sold in 1914. From then on records peter out, but we do know that the house was sold in 2002 for $3.106 million, and again in 2008 for an undisclosed sum. From the tower, there are 360-degree views, from the Dandenongs to the city to the Macedon Ranges. Italianate columns and vermiculated quoins (corner blocks with irregular wormlike patterns etched into them) are among the more elaborate features on the facade. Two north-facing arched verandahs have black-and-white marble floor tiles and arches decorated

with Corinthian columns. Originally, the house was rendered with grey cement, but when paint became fashionable – some time in the 1950s – somebody got out the paint tin. A dramatic entrance up bluestone steps and through a heavy timber door leads to the grand marble entry hall with four broad arches and glittering chandelier. Off it, the two formal rooms, with bay windows, deep cornices, spectacular ceiling roses and marble mantelpieces – black in the dining room, white in the sitting room – retain their wonderful proportions. The staircase – with its handrail worn smooth by more than 100 years of use – leads to the first floor. On the way, the landing is lit by an original stained-glass window showing a family crest, bearing the Latin motto “Deus Nobis quis contra” (“God is for us who can be against us?”). The family room is large yet cosy with an open fireplace (one of six with marble mantelpieces). The kitchen, as expected, is also spacious, with long, black granite benches, two-pac cupboards and Gagganeau appliances. It is open to the atrium and informal meals area. Doors from the meals area open to the back garden

THE IN-CROWD

Blue skies and bright sunshine greeted more than 70 people at Comaques, the Italianate Victorian mansion in Glenferrie Road Kew, at its first open for inspection on Saturday, May 15. Also at the inspection – in her owner’s arms – was Zoe, the Jack Russell. Built in 1891, Comaques has 14 rooms and is regarded as one of Melbourne’s premier Italianate homes with 360-degree views from its central square tower.

RT EDGAR, 9826 1000 896 Glenferrie Road, Kew Price: $5.5 million plus Auction: June 5 at 1pm Fast facts: landmark mansion, superb formal rooms, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, high ceilings, intricate cornices, chandeliers, grand formal entry, granite kitchen, powder room, two en suites, bar, cellar, swimming pool, security system, 360-degree views, double garage with internal access, close to all Kew schools.

Three more bedrooms and another bathroom are arranged off the hall. At the end of the hall, double doors open to a balcony, with views to the east. At the front of the hall, 15 narrow carpeted stairs lead to the tower. Here, the true height of the place comes into focus. The views take in the Xavier College chapel dome and the city, with a broad skyline including the Eureka building. The owners say it is a top spot from which to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks. \

and swimming pool. On the other side of the meals area is the rumpus room, with a large, fully equipped bar, and next to it is a study. On the first floor, the main bedroom, with his and hers walk-in wardrobes, has views past the treetops and over Kew’s landmarks. A door opens to the private north-facing upper-level balcony; another door leads to the travertine marble en suite. On the other side of the hall, another bedroom has the same grand views, as well as a Hollywood-style marble en suite with a double shower and huge circular spa bath.

Famous for the Kew Junction and its war memorial at the meeting point of High Street and Cotham Road. The shops may not be as trendy as those of inner suburbs, but they are tops with locals. Toscano’s has been selling fruit and vegetables for 60 years; Bob Stewart has been around for three generations and stocks uniforms for 39 different schools – and not all in Kew. Have coffee and croissants at Via Veneto, eat Italian at Svago or Cento Nove or modern Japanese at Ocha in Pakington Street. Then there’s Oanh’s Kitchen, a modern Vietnamese restaurant on Glenferrie Road. For pubs, try the Skinny Dog, the Harp of Erin, or the Hotel Kew (formerly the Clifton). A newcomer is Barkers, reborn from the old Beehive Hotel, on the corner of High Street and Barkers Road.

Let the kids roam free in the huge back garden.

MALVERN A solid and substantial 1920s residence, Wendover is more than just a house with four bedrooms and formal and informal living rooms. It has a huge bonus – a large, level, back garden with a big lawn where children can run and play. The kitchen and family room look out to the back garden, so an eye can easily be kept on what’s happening outside. Hydronic heating also provides winter warmth. This house is handsome. A large entry porch is set beneath a red-tiled gabled roof supported by red brick and cream stucco piers. A wide attic-style window protrudes from the roof. Box bay leadlight windows are a feature of both front rooms, as are the elaborate decorative plaster ceilings. In the sitting room, an alcove with two small windows in one wall has an open fireplace, which has a polished timber surround and tiled hearth. The other front room is a bedroom, but could be the formal dining room. The original staircase is intact, as are the

Arawatta is Camberwell through and through: a solid, respectable Edwardian brick house (circa 1903) set in leafy surrounds among similar houses in a heritage streetscape. Floral leadlight glass around the front door and in the formal rooms are typical of the era, but it has none of the Edwardian nooks and crannies. The proportions of the formal rooms, the high ceilings, elaborate ceiling roses and the lavish, detailed and intricate cornices are still magnificent more than 100 years after the house was built. The main bedroom downstairs also has an en suite. Renovated some years ago, Arawatta includes a full-width open-plan informal meals, living and kitchen, fretwork-trimmed rear verandah and three bedrooms, an en suite and another bathroom upstairs. In the north-facing back garden, a studio has its own laundry, en suite and mezzanine level. A swimming pool and three-quarter-size tennis court should keep the sporty members of the family happy. \ MARIA HARRIS

In this privileged pocket of suburbia, the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, Glenferrie and Toorak roads, shops and station are only a few minutes’ walk from every house. This luxurious house packs a lot between its walls. For starters, it has the luxury of four to five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Then there is the dramatic curved wrought-iron staircase in the entry hall, parquetry floors and the formal living/ dining room with silk curtains and open fireplace. The granite-and-timber kitchen overlooks the informal living room, which is flooded with natural light, thanks to a wall of north-facing glass doors. They open to the alfresco area, where tightly clipped hedges and a water feature add an elegant touch. Miele appliances, hydronic heating, zoned air-conditioning and an alarm are other features. \ MARIA HARRIS

TOORAK Let there be light! And when this neo-Georgian house was built about 20 years ago, the architect did just that. All living spaces face north to overlook the paved entertaining area and swimming pool. A rather formal house, its facade is perfectly symmetrical. The central front door is flanked by four 12-paned windows, with identical windows on the upper level. There is plenty of glamour, with parquetry floors, columns and elegant formal rooms. In the dining room, a mural occupies one wall. But its first duty is as a family home. The kitchen, with granite benches and stainless-steel appliances, overlooks the family room, which has a wall of built-in storage for books, photos and memorabilia. Off the entry hall, the curved staircase leads to the upper level, where there are four bedrooms – including the main bedroom with marble en suite – plus another bathroom. \ MARIA HARRIS

After the railway line came through Hawthorn in the 1880s, grand houses for the wealthy were built on the hill in Harcourt Street, including the Nicholas family (of Aspro fame). Your family could soon be a part of that heritage – with six bedrooms, this house has enough space for lots of kids and the flexibility to convert those rooms into studies or anything else you need. That flexibility extends to the rest of the house, as it offers the opportunity to update and improve it as you choose. Of note is the kitchen/ family room, which opens onto a spacious north-facing terrace and lawn. Built in the 1930s, this house is of a slightly more recent vintage, but the street it’s on remains one of the suburb’s best, with Auburn Primary School, private schools and public transport all nearby. \ HARI RAJ

Built in the 1890s, this Victorian house is tucked away in a quiet pocket of Hawthorn East but is close to all that Camberwell offers. Its single-fronted entrance belies the space inside; there are three double bedrooms off the main hallway, and the bathroom is almost the size of one one of them. Fixtures and fittings are tastefully neutral throughout – they exude class and would suit any sort of decor. The garden has exceptional depth, with room for a pavilion that is perfect for a spot of reading in the sun. Looking out on it is the living room, which soaks up the northern light. The kitchen has marble benches, the floors are polished timber and, all in all, this house is a fine blend of contemporary style and understated elegance. \ HARI RAJ

“I love that the only decision you have to make is which restaurant you want to go to for dinner,” says TBM’s Susan Wolper of this apartment. The shops and eateries of Toorak Village are just 50 metres away; in fact, you could probably see them from the first-floor balcony. The vendor lives overseas, so the apartment is like new – some of the kitchen’s appliances have never been used. Floors are carpeted, with a parqueted entry, under high ceilings. There’s heaps of storage space, and a roomy en suite and walk-in wardrobe for the master bedroom. The main living area is big enough to be flexible when it comes to positioning a television or couches. One of just five in this apartment building, there’s also parking for two cars and lock-up storage. \ HARI RAJ

Spectacular views, grand living and six bedrooms make this mansion a winner.

st kilda west Film and television producer Bob Weis (The Dunera Boys, Raw FM) and his wife, Catherine Reiser, a theatre producer, are selling their St Kilda West home. The four-storey Victorian mansion with six bedrooms – more if you want – has spectacular views of Catani Gardens, St Kilda pier and Port Phillip Bay. The back of the house looks out over the rooftops. Cloaked in Boston ivy and with its own “air-conditioner” – a mature plane tree planted by Weis in the nature strip – this house is not just a wonderful family home with grand and welcoming rooms, it also mirrors the fortunes of this suburb by the bay. Built circa 1890 as one of five identical terraces as a summer getaway for Melbourne’s well-to-do, it declined as St Kilda declined, becoming a hotel and then a rooming house. The terraces were renamed Victory Mansions after the war, but three were bulldozed in

the 1960s to make way for flats. When Weis bought the property in 1984, each room had a hand-basin. He engaged architect Alan Powell to restore the house. “Fundamentally, we took it back to what it was,” Weis says. “I have wonderful memories of dinners and entertaining in this house. We will miss the

neighbours. We have wonderful neighbours.” Original features such as the arched hall, timber floorboards, and 12 open fireplaces (many with marble mantelpieces) have been retained. On the ground floor, the living, meals and marble kitchen with Smeg appliances make up the informal area. Formal living and dining are on the first floor, with a dumb waiter to take food to and from the kitchen. Each level has bedrooms and bathrooms, but on the top floor the main bedroom suite has 180-degree views of Catani Gardens, St Kilda pier and beach and, to the north, views of the city. A home office with kitchenette and self-contained apartment with separate access is on the lower-ground floor. The house has double-glazed windows, hydronic heating, water tanks and solar hot-water service. The back garden, designed by renowned landscape designer Rick Eckersley, has the scent of daphne, lavender and ginger lilies. When you look up from the garden, the sheer scale of this house becomes apparent. \ MARIA HARRIS

BUXTON, 9592 8000 68 Were Street, Brighton Price: $2.2 million - $2.4 million Auction: June 5 at 12.30pm

BRIGHTON Flexibility is the key word to describe this two-storey Brighton property. It has some interesting features, but it’s also in a location with enough potential for renovations or rebuilding – the beach is a short walk away, as are schools and the Were Street shops. As it stands, the main bedroom is just off the entrance, with an enormous walk-in wardrobe and en suite that occupy a combined area bigger than the bedroom. It’s presently being used as a home office, handily positioned at the front of the house. Just across the hall is the lounge area, along with a dining room and a second study/kids’ play area. There are three more bedrooms upstairs, two of which are connected by a balcony. Downstairs, the Miele-fitted kitchen occupies a central position. To its left is a family/living area and to its right is one of the house’s highlights – a sunny conservatory, presently set up as a dining area, but with space

for almost any configuration of tables and chairs to take advantage of the light. This conservatory looks onto a courtyard, which also has room to spare. Right now there are deckchairs on one end, an outdoor dining set up on the other and a shady cabana in one corner – and it’s still big enough to fit in two barbecues and space for children or party guests. The entire area, including the glass-fenced, tiled pool, is shielded by a row of hedges, and palm trees add a tropical touch. \ HARI RAJ
