BLESSINGS: Living on Elephant Time
On Sunday October 27, acclaimed Chicago Cabaret Artist, Hilary Ann Feldman ("... a tour de force of cabaret, opera, and jazz" ~Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune) presents a special, multi-media cabaret show to benefit Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary (BLES) in central Thailand.
BLES is passionately devoted to creating a safe and natural home for rescued Thai elephants, allowing them to interact freely within 750+ acres of forest land. Feldman was so inspired by her time at BLES that she has taken up their cause in the way she does best: through songs, stories, and beautiful images.
Journey with Hilary and three magnificent Thai elephants as they move from a life of slavery to one of true sanctuary. Witness as they rediscover their wild selves, form a truly special family unit, and learn to be elephants again. Learn the life secrets these magical creatures have always known. Discover a place where animals are the teachers and love is love is love.
