Summer sell-out for OKA ahead of US tour
AFTER a massive WA tour in
September 2012, which saw
sell-out shows at venues that
were begging them to return

expand their audiences at home
and abroad, OKA will be taking
off to headline the Bali Spirit
Festival in March.
A worldwide tour will sweep
them from home shores for winter,
via Hawaii and the US to Europe.
OKA has already made a big mark
in Canada with 10 tours, as well as
tours to US, Japan and countless
traversing of Australia.

Free speech stalls
by DAVID BELL
COMMUNITY groups that
want to save suburban trees
and oppose genetically
modified food have been
banned from having stalls at
the Treasure Hunters markets
in Royal Street, East Perth.
Perth city council instructed
markets organisers to kick the
stalls out, stating they were
political groups, and therefore
unwelcome. The markets are held
on PCC property.
The edict was reportedly
sparked by Perth city councillor
Lyndon Rodgers who’d visited
the markets and taken a dislike
to the “political presence”, which
included stallholders inviting
people to sign petitions.
Activist stalls are a feature
of markets across the country—
including Hobart’s famous
Salamanca Markets—but are
apparently too spicy for Perth.
“We have been notified that a
political stand was at one of the
stalls of the market,” the PCC
emailed organisers.
“Please can you ensure that no
political messages or stands etc
are present at the Treasure Market
as the City of Perth do not want
to be associated with any political
opinions or standings and this
could cause a media issue.”
Greg Smith, a former council
town planner who hosts the
community TV show Treasure
Hunt, describes the ban as
“unfuckenbelievable”.
“What a bunch of wankers,”
co-organiser Michael Couani adds.
“When are the Gestapo going to
come in? The thought police?”
Mr Smith says community

groups are an important aspect of
markets’ culture.
“The markets should be more
than just selling trash and treasure
and food, it should be the selling
of ideas and opinions and the
complete range of things.”
He notes he’s invited Christian
and Muslim groups to be part of
the markets, and now wonders if
they’ll be outlawed too.
Tibor Meszaros heads up
WestTV which produces Mr
Smith’s show.
He notes the banned groups,
“don’t represent any political
parties whatsoever, they represent
movements of people in the
community who are expressing
some views about the events
happening in the city or in WA”.
Alex Jones is the promoter of
saveourtrees.net, one of the affected
community groups.
“We’re not a political group. I
don’t think anyone at the group
belongs to any political party at
all, so I don’t know what they’re
talking about.”
She says the crackdown
is typical of state and local
governments that team up with
developers to quash community
dissent.
“It didn’t surprise me,” she told
the Voice. “In the back of my mind
was that the local government and
state government have been very
resistant to community groups
concerned about what is going
on.”
Cr Rodgers was unrepentant:
“I don’t care what political party it
is,” he told the Voice.
“I don’t think the markets is the
place for it.”

Bottleneck
by STEPHEN POLLOCK
A SHORTAGE of public
housing units and affordable
rentals is creating a
bottleneck in the Salvation
Army’s humanitarian
housing program.
The Salvos provide
temporary accommodation in
Stirling for a large number of
African and Middle Eastern
families entering Australia on
humanitarian visas.
Manager Kate Greenway says
that since 2009 some families
have stayed put more than three
years because they can’t find
anywhere affordable to move to.
“The steady decline of housing
affordability over the past three
years has made it extremely hard
for us to secure accommodation
for large families,” she told the
Voice.
“The aim of our program
is to make the families more
independent and self-su cient,
so our preference would be
for them to move into private
rentals.
“But in reality the shortage
of affordable rentals mean
they end up in state housing
accommodation, or in limbo at
our homes.”
She says there is a list
of 50 families waiting to
use the Salvos’ temporary
accommodation.
Ms Greenway says finding
a permanent home for African
families is exacerbated by their
poor English skills and their
reluctance to live next door to
families from warring African
states.
“The lack of affordable
accommodation is causing a
bottleneck in our system,” she
says.
“We already have up to 15
people staying in one of our twoand three-bedroom houses, and
we know that families share out
kids to even up the numbers.”
St Bart’s CEO Andrew Hogan
notes more older people are
seeking refuge in homeless
shelters because of housing
stress.
High rents and soaring utility
costs have seen more baby
boomers look for help in the past
two years then ever before, he
says, with unaffordability joining
mental illness and addiction as a
primary cause of homelessness.

by STEPHEN POLLOCK
LITTLE BART and Bling have
been banned from St Bart’s
new $34 million hostel and
HQ because of health and
safety red tape.
The dogs had been bought
by St Bart’s in 2010, using a
Lotterywest grant, to keep
residents active and happy at the
shelter’s former home in Brown
Street.
St Bart’s CEO Andrew Hogan
says management decided—on
the advice of an occupational
therapist—that it was potentially
dangerous to relocate the dogs to
Lime Street.
“The only outside area
suitable for them would have
been the gardens used by elderly
residents,” he told the Voice.
“We didn’t want a young, 40kilo dog knocking down an old,
infirm person.
“This is a much bigger facility
ANGOVE STREET
with more people coming and
going—we couldn’t guarantee
that the dogs wouldn’t escape
out the front door and get
knocked down on Lime Street.”
St Bart’s doesn’t allow
residents to keep pets either.
Clayton Riddell told the Voice
the dog ban is the latest in a
long line of teething issues at the
swank site which saw him move
out in frustration this week.
“I’m heading up to the bush
to live with my family—I’ve had
enough, mate,” he says.
Little Bart and Bling now live
with St Bart’s accountant, at his
home.
Mr Hogan says he plans to
allow the dogs to visit weekly
from February. Little Bart is
named after the original Bart,
a huge and charismatic Irish
elkhound who’d stayed at the
original shelter and died in 2009.
A local legend, he’d bonded with
residents and visitors and even
managed to soften the heart of
ex-Kalgoorlie miner Jim Giltrap,
a tough larrikin who stayed
in the shelter for more than 10
years.
The pair became inseparable,
with Bart guarding Jim’s room at
night. When Jim was diagnosed
with cancer and was moved to
palliative care, he would get
friends to sneak Bart out of the
shelter and smuggle him into his
hospital room.
In his final days, Jim missed
Bart so much he discharged
himself so they could stay
together in a private residence.

Aborigines mark
loss of country
by STEPHEN POLLOCK
ABORIGINAL people from
across WA will converge on
Heirisson Island for a “Last
day of freedom” event the
day before Australia Day.
Event organiser Marianne
Mackay expects around 400
Noongars to attend the all-day
event on January 25, which will
include singing, dancing and
cultural ceremonies.
“We haven’t asked for any
formal permission from Perth
council, because we believe we
don’t need it,” she says.
“As tribal sovereigns we
shouldn’t have to ask nonAboriginals for their permission
to practise our culture.
“Out of goodwill, our elders
will meet with Perth council to
inform them of our plans and
ask them not to send in military
forces to stop us celebrating our
culture.”
Last year Aboriginal
campaigners camped on
the island to protest the WA
government’s $1 billion offer to
settle native title claims in Perth
and the South-West.
The peaceful 40-day sitin ended when 70 riot squad
o cers, police on horseback
and more than a dozen council
workers dismantled the camp.
“The city is aware of the
proposed event on Heirisson
Island but to date has not
received a formal application
from the organisers,” Perth city
council CEO Gary Stevenson
told the Voice. “The CEO will
meet with a Noongar elder to
discuss the proposal and the
intention of the organisers.”
WA Police say they won’t
comment for now.
store processing 130,000 orders
in a year, averaging 355 a day.
Communications manager Trish
Miller says employees have been
retrained.
Stirling city council health
and compliance manager Peter
Morrison says the franchised
outlet has new owners and
better standards apply.
Chicken Treat Balcatta was
fined $51,537 last July for a string
of offences, including selling
food past its use-by date.
Since 2007 the WA
government has been naming
and shaming outlets that breach
safety standards.
Public heath advocate Mike
Daube wants shaming to go a
step further.
“I’d like to see businesses
guilty of serious offences
forced to display signage for a
set period of time, informing
customers of the breach,” he
says.
“There isn’t anything more
important to our fundamental
health than clean water and safe
food.”
Fast food fines
by ALEX NEWBIGIN
FAST FOOD outlets across
Voiceland have racked up
$200,000 in fines for health
and cleanliness breaches in
just seven months.
Those pinged by councils for
filthy premises, foreign objects
in food and poor maintenance
include famous outlets like
Hungry Jack’s, Red Rooster and
Chicken Treat.
HJ’s Beechboro store was
fined $75,000 last month after
a woman coughed up a 1.5cm
metal swarf that had been
hidden in her onion rings.
Red Rooster Balcatta
was fined $42,194 for dirty
premises and poor equipment
maintenance.
Company spokesperson Todd
Hayward says the store is one of
the busiest in Australia, with the
Head’s home in Vincent
by STEPHEN POLLOCK
THE controversial big blue
head has found a home—
it’s to be installed outside
Vincent city council’s HQ in
Leederville.
The $35,000 Ken Sealey
artwork Beseech had originally
been planned for outside 375
Charles Street in North Perth,
funded as part of the council’s
per-cent-for-art scheme. But the
developer hated it so much he
doesn’t want it anywhere near
his four-storey complex (“Blue
note for big head,” November 24,
2012).
“The major concern expressed
by the owners was that the
‘artwork would de-value the
property and detract potential
lessees’,” council staff said in a
report.
Mr Sealey is “thrilled” the
head is to be installed at the
corner of Vincent and Loftus
Streets, saying it’ll be seen by
many more people. “It will be
positioned beside trees in a
pretty public area, where people
eat lunch, and be seen by a lot of
passing tra c,” he said.
QUOTES
“I’m also glad the head will
be looking up at the council and
questioning the decisions of the
people who work inside.”
Mayor Alannah MacTiernan
hopes to have the head installed
within months.
“The statue will still be
called Beseech in tribute to all the
developers who come to council
and beseech us to approve their
developments,” she quipped.
Public artwork is often
controversial at Vincent. Two
councillors voted “no” for a
giant “OMG” that’s since gone
up on Beaufort Street.

Put a ribbon on
it
IT is disappointing the artist
and landscape architect of the
AIDS memorial have no problem
with their name being inscribed
on the memorial but are totally
resistant to the idea of having
the international AIDS ribbon
anywhere near or on the site
(Voice, December 2012).

A red ribbon would represent
the names of the hundreds who
died of AIDS, which the memorial is
supposed to represent.
The memorial was left to fall into
a state of total disrepair: None of the
now-concerned stakeholders who
have sole decision-making power
cared but now they want to retain it
as mere art in the park .
If it is good enough for them to
have their names inscribed it’s good
enough to have a red ribbon on it.
Vincent city council could
resolve this by buying a $50 can of
waterproof red paint and placing a
red ribbon on the water feature. It
would add to its spiritual value as an
memorial for the whole community.
At the moment it does not fit
its intended role as an community
memorial, which the community
gave $143,000 for.
The Perth OPI Sisters are calling
for the memorial to be reclassified
from an artwork and to be
rededicated as a world class AIDS
memorial with a red ribbon added
and the HIV/AIDS community
to have some input into its future
upkeep and care .

Love the logo
I WAS disturbed to read the
CEO of the WA AIDS Council
thinks “it is possible that ribbons
have become so ubiquitous that
the inclusion [of a ribbon at the
memorial] may not particularly
add meaning to members of the
public.”
As a member of a well established
HIV/AIDS support and advocacy
group we use the red ribbon
as our logo because, like other
organisations, we know its visibility
is still effective at raising awareness.
Other organisations like breast
cancer care, the cancer council,
McGrath Foundation, violence
against women and charities
continue to sell ribbons everyday
to educate people about health
issues and to raise essential funds to
support clients. Is the AIDS Council
saying this is also a ubiquitous waste
of time?
Is this new policy towards the red
ribbon by the WA AIDS Council the
reason this year on World AIDS Day
there were no ribbons to be seen in
Perth, despite being sold in all other
states and around the world to raise
awareness to HIV/AIDS in 2012?
What other charities understand
is that a ribbon is as good as a
pamphlet or poster at getting health
messages and visible support to
the community as well as being a
great way to raise money to pay for
services for clients.

Tourism body defends huge fee
by DAVID BELL
A TOURISM organisation has
defended charging a charter boat
owner $3300 rent for the 10 days his
boat was tied to a post.
Marine Tourism WA—formerly the
Charter Boat Association—says it owns
the post and wants to discourage nonmembers like Bronson Norrish from using
its gear. Mr Norrish had tied his boat to
the post—requiring him to swim out to
the vessel—after losing his berth because
of the Elizabeth Quay development (Voice,
January 12, 2013).
Marine Tourism president Rick Reid says
charging $330 a day is fair “when someone
takes possession of your lone pile”. “It’s a
bit of a penalty for keeping everyone else off
it,” he says. “If you’re going to lay claim to
someone else’s mooring it’s not going to go
down very well.”
Mr Reid says an original post
owned by the Swan River Trust had
been replaced by the association so
the Trust told the organisation it could

Piccadilly parties on
by STEPHEN POLLOCK
YOU might just see a few ghosts
when the Piccadilly Theatre and
Arcade celebrates its 75th birthday
this year.
Heritage Perth CEO Richard Offen
says rumours still abound the cinema
complex is haunted by the ghost of a
former manager who, locked in one night,
fell to his death down stairs in the dark.
“The ghost is said to have been first
discovered by a workman, who claimed
to have seen it as a shadowy figure
walking across the foyer to the lift,” he
says.
The arcade was the brain child
of English migrant Claude Albo De
Bernales, who’d arrived in Coolgardie in
1897 with £5 to his name.
De Bernales borrowed £50, moved
to Kalgoorlie, and made his fortune in
mining.
In 1937, he employed architects Alfred
Baxter Cox and Leighton to design a
shopping arcade on land he owned
connecting Hay and Murray Streets.
“The Piccadilly Theatre was one
of a number of theatres and cinemas
constructed in and around Perth between
the first and second world wars,” Mr
Offen says.
“The building was designed in
• Piccadilly Cinema—turning 75. Photo by
Jeremy Dixon
an inter-war functionalist style and
represented the desire for enjoyment
and entertainment displayed by people
throughout the western world at the end
of the great depression.
“The cinema opened on March 10,
1938 with a charity gala screening of the
Claudette Colbert film, I Met Him in Paris,
which was attended by the state governor,
Sir James Mitchell.”
The cinema was not the largest in
Perth in 1938—it seated 1100 people—but
its art deco architecture and amenities
were lauded.
“The foyers were profusely decorated
with red and gold roses, pink gladioli
and exquisite vari-coloured dahlias and
the ladies boudoir came in for special
attention, as did the theatre attendants
with their short black dresses and white
gloves, one discretely tucked into the
skirt’s waistband,” Mr Offen says.
“The theatre and arcade also feature
a number of bas relief friezes of dancing
girls and ‘Atlas type’ figures which were
moulded by Perth sculptor Edward
Kohler.”
The cinema remained under the
control of De Bernales’ parent company
until 1978, after which it changed hands
several times.
In 1984 the complex underwent
a major refurbishment, winning an
architectural award from the Royal
Australian Institute of Architecture in
1986.
Towards the end of his life, a poor and
sick De Bernales moved back to England,
where he died a lonely recluse in Sussex.

MT HAWTHORN
Hi,
I’m very excited to tell you about a change that has occurred in your neighbourhood
- Just Spectacles Mt Hawthorn has been transitioned to OPSM!
My name is Bjorn, and I am the new Franchise Partner at OPSM Mt Hawthorn. I’ve
been an Optometrist in Perth for the last 15 years now, and spent the first 11 of
those years with Just Spectacles. Four years ago I became the first ever Franchise
Partner with OPSM at the Cockburn Gateways store, south of the river. And I am
very proud now to be the new partner in Mt Hawthorn.
At OPSM Mt Hawthorn we are aiming to provide you with World Class Eyecare and
Eyewear. Working with Sue, our Managing Dispenser, and our other team members,
Shavaughn and Jackie, I have set about purchasing and incorporating some of the
latest technology to help us achieve our goal.
For example, our new Accufit system means that when it comes to taking
measurements for Multifocals or Single Vision spectacles, we will be able to specify
spectacle lens orders with digital accuracy. And with our Ultra Wide Digital Retinal
Scanner exclusive to OPSM due to arrive in January, we will be able to scan your
retinas to help manage the health of your eyes on a whole new level.
So why not come in and meet the team and have your eye health checked.
We look forward to being of assistance.
Regards,
Bjorn.

Police tipped Vincent city council off
to the uno cial Comanchero clubhouse
late last year. The property owner is now
applying for retrospective approval.
The Safer Vincent group held a meeting
to discuss the likely impacts of a bikie club
A TRAIN CARRIAGE damaged in an
accident in 2011 is still out of action
and won’t be back in service till
around June.
Labor MPs say the time taken to
repair the A-series railcar is ridiculous,
especially given the tight squeeze on
Perth’s creaking passenger rail system.
The two-car set has been out of
service since November 25, 2011 when an
undercarriage cabinet door came free and
was caught on track equipment, causing
significant damage to the underside.At an
October 2012 estimates hearings meeting,
PTA director Mark Burgess told MPs the
accident was partly caused by “human
error” and replacement parts had been
di cult to source.
PTA spokesperson Kate Johnson says it
should be back on the tracks in June.
“While the railcar has been out of
action we have been working with our
railcar maintenance providers to ensure
that railcar availability targets are met
and a full service is provided each day,”
she says.
Maylands Labor MP Lisa Baker—who
has been campaigning incessantly about
sardine conditions on the Midland line
at rush hour—was quick to pounce:
“With passengers being packed onto
trains like sardines every day, the Barnett
government should ensure every single
available rail car is online,” she fumes.
in the area. Police told the meeting they’d
patrol the street frequently but as far as
they knew there were no ongoing issues
with rival gangs.
The Voice doorknocked nearby houses
on Tuesday and a couple of residents
said they weren’t worried. “Freedom of
association is a basic Australian right,” one
told the Voice. Another said they’d had no
issues. But most would prefer the bikies
hop on their Harleys, throttle up and head
out of town. One resident said they’d been
too afraid to submit a complaint to council
Train
delay
in case their name was made public.
Two parents told the Voice their kids
hide every time they hear the bikes’ noise.
Three people said bikies routinely
visited Brookman Street and stood about
whispering. They believed they did this
to avoid surveillance. “I’d prefer they’re
out in the bush...but by the same token it’s
none of my business,” one man said.
The premises has been raided in the
past, with police seizing steroids. The
council will decide on the application
March 12.
• Labor’s Ken Travers, Bob Kucera and Lisa Baker accuse the Barnett government of
mismanaging passenger rail. Photo by Jeremy Dixon
“It is outrageous that a two-car set has
been allowed to be out of service for so
long.”
Mt Lawley Labor candidate Bob
Kucera says the government has failed
to recognise the importance of passenger
rail: “Patronage on Perth’s rail network
increased by seven per cent during the
2011/12 financial year,” he told the Voice.
“The lack of spare trains means that
RingSide
when a train breaks down or needs
maintenance, the already overcrowded
system is put under greater stress.”
Last year, 700 commuters signed
Ms Baker’s petition calling on the
government to address overcrowding.
WA transport minister Troy Buswell
says the Liberal-National government
is spending $165 million on 45 new
carriages and investing more in buses.

A
by DAVID BELL
MANDA MONROE
was 48, overweight,
an alcoholic and a
man when a near-miss car
accident almost killed her—
then him—in 1999.
In the three days that
followed then-John made an
enormous decision, and decided
to listen to the inner-voice that
had been nagging at him for
years, and become a woman.
“I realised that I’d spent my
entire life trying to be someone
that I wasn’t really,” Monroe tells
the audience in her one-woman
show Mangina—Tales of an XY
Woman.
The man in the car died, she
says, and Amanda Monroe was
born.
Raised in the 1950s by
conservative parents, Monroe
says her boyhood was
traditional white male stuff
and gender roles were
strongly reinforced.
Her parents had
died by the time she
decided to become
a woman, and she
concedes it would
have been impossible
to have made the
transition if they’d
been alive.
“It’s very hard
for people with that
mindset to change
their opinion,” she
told the Voice. “It’s
almost like being
gay is a much more
acceptable thing than
this.
“When you transition from
one gender to another you’re
entirely rejecting the person that
they’ve created.”
But she had to change,
Monroe says, or she’d be dead
from drink.
“I’d not taken care of myself
for years and years, because I
hated the existence that I had.
“That was all to bury this
person inside me pushing to
say ‘you can have this life’. That
tension is released by being
drunk enough to go to sleep.
“If I hadn’t had that event
I most likely would have been
dead within a few years.”
When she did decide to make
the change, she was in good
hands. One of her best friends
was transgender and guided her
through the painful early steps:
Getting onto hormones and
growing breasts, working out
which dresses are fl attering and
womanly, considering surgery,
and—importantly—how to walk

in girls’ shoes.
“I had a very harsh teacher
who was able to say to me ‘don’t
step outside looking like that!’,”
Monroe chuckles.
From the darkest depths of
booze abuse and denial, Monroe
describes her first time stepping
into the world as a woman
as “extremely liberating and
wonderful. I felt amazing. I felt
like the whole world was brand
new.
“The first time I was mistaken
for a woman...how exhilarating
it is! Now I live full time as a
woman. I’m very rarely, we
call it ‘sprung’, and if you’re
sprung people figure out you’re
a man. Now when that happens,
it doesn’t really concern me,
because of the way I’ve gotten
use to myself and accepted
myself.”
With her family gone, Monroe
found friends were largely
accepting of the change, all save
for one gay male friend who felt
uncomfortable with the change
and dropped her from his
Christmas card list.
Turning her story into a show
meant going public with every
bump in the road, and Monroe
describes it as “almost like a
form of therapy”.
“I keep hearing people come
to me and say how it’s such an
infl uence on them and it’s made
me rethink many of the issues
that I’ve spoken about.
“Some people have come up
and said ‘I have a similar story’.
It’s allowed one or two people
to say ‘you’ve given me a lot to
think about and I’ll be talking to
my wife about that’.
“This is what I wanted
to happen. I wanted to open
people’s eyes and minds to what
this journey is about.”

Inspector Montalbano
was the Italian guy with
the dog, but that’s Inspector
Rex and he’s not even Italian,
and Columbo’s the guy in
the wheelchair or is that
Petrocelli?
The line between fiction and
reality blurred as we drove
to Monte Fiore for lunch, our
trip inspired by The Young
Montalbano which I’d snored
through the previous night.
New owners took the reins at
Fiore two months ago and have
ploughed some serious lira into
renovations.
The dining area is bright
and contemporary with a
huge stencil artwork of a bird
emblazoned on the rear wall.
Impressive, as some Italian
restaurateurs can overdo the
whole Rome-in-Perth theme and
end up with Berlusconi’s cod
piece.
The auspicious start was
extended by a waiter who
ushered us to a table with vistas
of Beaufort Street.
The menu is a mix of
traditional Italian dishes and
some modern twists.
As an overture we ordered
bruschetta ($14), with penne
arrabiata ($26) and prawn and
crab ravioli ($32) for mains.
Fiore deserves bonus points
for being open on a Sunday
afternoon, when most Italian
restaurants in Perth mimic
Vesuvius and lay dormant.
After an argument about
whether Columbo’s phantom
wife shaved her legs, the
bruschetta arrived.
We quickly devoured two
hunks of crusty bread scattered
with fresh tomato, red onion and
olives.
It was a delicious entree
which had enough bread for us
to share in conjugal bliss.
Next up was my arrabiata:
a hefty mound of penne pasta,
olives and dog-eared chorizo.
The spicy sauce had a nice
peppery kick and complemented
the shaved onions in this peasant
fiesta.
On the boot-side of the table,
‘er indoors was fondling her
at The Left Bank!

prawn and crab ravioli, gently
teasing the freshly-made parcels
and zucchini with the tip of her
fork.
“The crab and prawn filling is
delicious, but the tomato sauce
is overpowering the seafood
slightly,” she said.
Monte Fiore serves up tasty
Italian fare and the waiting staff
are attentive and friendly; but
the food is a bit on the pricey
side for lunch.
A modest lunch menu would
be a nice addendum and help
snare the Mt Lawley o ce
brigade.
It’s early days and innercity rents are extortionate, so it
deserves time to find top gear.
Now, I need to phone that
German Shepherd and see if he
can sniff out my missing wallet.

What’s on at
Notre Dame
From the Vice Chancellor
Welcome to our final What’s On column for 2012.
Our monthly column has once again given us the
opportunity to share information about the many
interesting events, public lectures and other exciting
happenings on the Campus for the Fremantle
community to participate in throughout the year.
We have been delighted with the response and the
chance to welcome visitors to our unique and beautiful
Campus here in the historical West End of Fremantle.
In addition to informative lectures hosted by our academics, throughout
the year Notre Dame has welcomed to its Fremantle Campus renowned
Australian authors and international scholars; key political figures and
leaders in Indigenous social justice reform.
Dark, silly and fun
B
Notre Dame has also participated and supported a number of Fremantle
events, including the successful Heritage Festival held at the end of May.
We have also provided many opportunities for the Fremantle community
to discuss issues of concern through public forums, such as the studentrun Freo Futures Forum 2012 held in October.
The University will launch a new community initiative on Campus early next
year – Four Days in Summer. The first ‘Day in Summer’ is a Community
BBQ on Friday 18 January 2013. We hope you can join us!

It is our intention to continually build on these ideas in 2013 and we look
forward to contributing further to the vibrant and colourful city of
Fremantle. Please see below for details on the event.
ANE is theatre with
muscles and laughs.
As we farewell another cohort of students at our December Graduation
ceremonies, we look forward to sharing more exciting news and events
with the Fremantle community when our academic year starts in March.
On behalf of the Notre Dame community, we wish all our readers peace, joy
and love throughout the Christmas season and best wishes for the New Year.
Vice Chancellor, Professor Celia Hammond
unforgiving UK comedy circuit
(light entertainer Des O’Connor
once fainted on a Glasgow stage
after being heckled and jeered
incessantly).
“I went to university and
studied drama, but there was
very little practical tuition, it was
more theory and concept based,”
he said.
“What really taught me
a lot was doing a bi-weekly
comedy night that four of us put
together.
“We made a new show of
sketches every two weeks,
gained stage time and acquired
invaluable experience testing
rough and ready ideas with an
audience.”
Bone’s high-school buddy
Ben Roe accompanies the
show with live, on-stage guitar
playing, which has a “Spanish
infl uence with a blusey folk
twang”.
“His music is a crucial
element of the show, it simply
wouldn’t work without it,”
Bone enthuses. “His work also
extends into the writing—he
contributes some fantastic ideas
that really infl uence the process
and effectively the end result.”
Award-winning Bane has
been a critical success and
played in theatres and festivals
worldwide, including the
Edinburgh Fringe.
It has already spawned
two sequels and a Portuguese
version, Billdog, that’s playing in
Rio de Janeiro.
Bone is excited about visiting
Australia for the first time but
says he needs to shed some kilos
after an indulgent Christmas.
“Hopefully I’ll be in better
shape when I get to Australia,”
he laughs.
“We’ve a London run just
prior to us leaving so hopefully
that’ll shed some timber.”
Bane is at The Blue Room
Theatre as part of the Fringe
World Festival from February
12-16 and at PICA Performance
Space from February 19-23.

Elizabethan ruffs and
soliloquies have been usurped
by pistols and belly-laughs.
“It’s dark, silly and lot’s of
fun,” show creator Joe Bone
says.
Central character Bruce Bane
is a film noir parody—a hit
man who shoots first and asks
questions later.
He suddenly finds himself
in the gun sights of a mystery
assassin and must work out
who’s trying to put a slug in his
back, before everyone around
him dies.
“The themes of Bane are
death, revenge and comedy,”
Bone says.
“It’s a parody of various
Hollywood movies and plot
lines, from Die Hard to Back to the
Future, but they’re all brought
together in a noirish, Sin Citytype story.
“It’s very minimalist and is
done at a fast pace to maintain
energy and interest—so, there
are no costume changes nor
props, just quick switching
between characters.”
Bone works up a sweat in
the two-man show: playing 40
different parts in an hour-long
production, which includes
simulated shootouts, car chases
and explosions.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
The Moon has revved you up. That
you take the path less travelled, is
par for the course, with Mars in Aquarius. You are
simply not going to do it any other way than that
which possesses you. Be sure to remember to
balance your own needs with those of others.
TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
The Moon sails through early in the week.
She sets your heart alight. That strange
fluttering in the middle of your chest, is butterflies of
excitement setting off on a new breeze. Build on the
little tremors of feeling that are trying to tell you that
you are on the right track.
DEMENTIA CARER SUPPORT GROUP. Are you

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
There’s an odd astrological dance
going on between Uranus, who
wants to instigate your inspiration – and Neptune
who appears to be throwing down a wet blanket.
Mere impulsiveness is not enough to get your cart
moving. Be inspired from the very depth of your soul.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
Pragmatism is about to go out the
window, so if you have something new
mapped out, put it into practice. It’s not really
pragmatism that goes out the window, it’s more a
linear view of pragmatism that bites the dust. This
stirring that is happening will make you whole.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
Venus has passed in front of Pluto.
Love has passed a mighty test. It will
have gotten stronger – even if it has shifted form.
Pluto initiates us and regenerates us. He takes all that
is false away and leaves us to find the new, afresh.
Your heart has been weeded. Get ready for the new.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
Saturn is dancing. Saturn is reality.
When reality dances, it means
we have found the joy that lies under all illusions.
To dance when our falseness is revealed is slightly
and divinely mad. Dance when your old, habitual self
wants you to whine and moan. Break the mould.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Friends are your medicine. Their
company is a soothing balm for
tired hearts. Friendliness is enough to heal most
heartaches. There’s no need to do anything
spectacular. It’s enough to recognise and celebrate
those blessings that are already coming your way.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The Sun shifts out of your sign. You
have been given a month’s worth of
cosmic help, to integrate all your disparate parts
into one dance. You are a little more on your own
now. Life is showing faith in leaving you to your own
devices. You must have faith in yourself too.
YOGA
YOGALIFE
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
As the Sun finds his way into
Aquarius, so you find your way into
parts of your being that you normally keep secret.
Under the pure, consistent, shining light of your regal
persona lies a radical, quirky and highly experimental
soul, waiting to get out. Break out. Break free.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The Sun arrives in Aquarius. You will want
fanfare. It’s not certain that you will get
any. What will happen though, is that you will start
to feel a self-integrating harmony. Those parts that
are at sixes and nines, will figure out how to dance.
Take chances that promote union.
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Grandiosity is not serving you well. It
might be yours – it might be somebody
else’s. Recognise it and move away – especially if it’s
decorated with spiritual reasoning. Keep filtering the
dross from the gold – even your own. Healing has to
be real - as has your sweetest ache.
