Diaghilev's Ballets Russes is
already proving a major attraction
at Canberra's National Gallery
of Australia. Titled 'Ballets Russes: the art
of costume', the exhibition features 150
costumes and accessories designed by
renowned artists from the early 20th century,
including Henri Matisse, Georges Braque,
Natalia Goncharova, André Derain, Giorgio
de Chirico, Pablo Picasso and many other
artists. Costumes from the Ballets Russes
have been painstakingly restored, and many
have not been seen since they were last
worn on stage.
The exhibition celebrates the centenary
of the first Paris seasons of Sergei Diaghilev's
dance company which revolutionised ballet
with its extravagant productions that bridged
the gap between tangible and abstract artistic
genres. Its stars included the inimitable
Nijinsky and Anna Pavlova. It runs until
March 2011. (www.nga.gov.au/balletsrusses)

spiritual, then make a date in February for

around the world for the beauty and purity of

And also in February, acclaimed Canadian
acoustic singer Martha Wainwright returns to
Australia following her sell out tour in 2008.
As part of the famous Wainwright/
McGarrigle musical dynasty, Martha
Wainwright has gone on to establish her own
individual reputation as a bonafide artist
in her own right. In a newly conceptualised
performance, she draws from her own musical
repertoire, as well as that of her family and
her critically acclaimed tribute to Edith
Piaf; "Sans Fusils, Ni Souliers, à Paris".
We're delighted to offer ONE DOUBLE

"How to Meditate
a Zen Monk...
If you'd like to meditate as deeply (actually
more deeply) than a Zen monk, literally at
the touch of a button, this may be one of the
most important messages you will ever read.
Here is why...
Based in part on Nobel Prize-winning
research on how "complex systems" (human
beings, for instance) evolve to higher levels
of functioning, a mental improvement
program has been created utilising a powerful
audio technology called Holosync®.
A precise combination of audio signals gives
the brain a very specific stimulus that creates
states of deep meditation --- and causes the
creation of new mind-enhancing neural
connections between left and right brain
Here's what other Australians are
saying about Holosync® ...
"I've had a massive decrease in my stress
level. I sit for 1½ hours in peak hour traffic
and arrive at work cheerful and unfazed."
- Janet Prentice, Sydney, NSW
"I sleep beautifully, concentrate with ease,
people have commented on how confident
and well I look." - Gregory O'Keeffe, Qld
"I am now happy and content. I am awake
and alert at 6.00am after a wonderful sleep
and have lots of energy."
- Anna Van Raay, Burwood, Vic
"I am more centred and happy. My brain
feels like it has been switched on."
- Doris Ruiner, Gleniffer, NSW
"I am sleeping better and best of all, my
health is now gradually improving."
- Margaret Farrar, Qld
