Event description

Description

In the last twenty years, the numbers of Asian elephants have been halved due to habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, poaching and capture. There are now an estimated thirty-five thousand living in the wild.

Elephant rescues are rare, unpredictable and often life threatening. After waiting 2.5 years, actor/director Ashley Bell and a team of elephant rescuers led by world renowned Asian elephant conservationist and Time Magazine's Hero of Asia, Lek Chailert, embark on a daring 480 mile mission across Thailand to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year old partially blind trekking elephant and bring her to freedom.

Love & Bananas aims to ignite a new way of thinking about Asian elephants, and show what can be done to prevent their extinction.

LIVE MUSIC - Kym Staton


Kym Staton has been serenading audiences in cafes, bars, pubs and other small venues as a singer/songwriter since 2012 and has performed more than three-hundred gigs at intimate venues around Sydney and Melbourne - including Bar 303, The Factory Theatre, The Newsagency, Newtown Social Club, Dome Bar, The White Horse, Broadway Lounge, Govindas Movie Room, Loop Project Space and countless other intimate venues, honing his skills and stagecraft.

He has a unique sound both exotic and earthy, and a wide and eclectic repertoire of blues, jazz and folk covers, weird old songs and unusual originals. His rare rock tenor voice goes from subtle to soaring in a heartbeat, and the exquisite interplay of his captivating vocals and a deft touch on his telecaster and acoustic guitar must to be heard to be believed.

Check out some of Kym's music on his youtube channel:
