Where Song Began’ is a musical and visual celebration of Australia’s birds and how they shaped the world.

Inspired by leading ornithologist Tim Low’s award-winning book, this performance explores the Australian origins of songbirds, ‘the birds that can sing’. Such is their evolutionary significance, ‘one may ask whether human music would have reached the heights it has, had the first songbird not sung in an Australian rainforest.’

Accessible for all ages, this work encourages the audience to contemplate the origin of birdsong and the importance of Australia’s rich and colourful bird history. The program includes music spanning 300 years, from Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and J.S. Bach to Arvo Pärt and new Australian works, enhanced by a film of evocative landscape stills, moving images and bird call field recordings sourced from the Cornell Ornithology Lab.

Performance length: 60 minutes without interval, including a Q&A
Tickets $30

Winter Warmer Films – Small is Beautiful

August 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
St Barnabas Hall, 40 Railway Rd, Kalamunda, Western Australia

Small is Beautiful follows four people as they try to gain independence by building their own tiny house, but their desire to live tiny is more difficult than they imagine.
Matt Hickman, writes “… It shows that tiny house building isn’t the proverbial walk in the park that it’s often made out to be. It’s hard. And it’s in discussing these hardships that Small is Beautiful – a rare and incredibly poignant documentary about small living that manages to choke you up – really shines.”

The independently made documentary looks at the honest and vulnerable side of people choosing to build their own tiny house.

This event is fundraising for Transition Town Kalamunda. Tickets are $10 incluing a bowl of homemade vegie soup. Please register via Eventbrite and pay cash on the night.

Doors open at 6:30. Movie starts at 7:15.
Ages 12+

Gentrification comes in many forms. On the tiny island of Marthas Vineyard, where presidents and celebrities vacation, trophy homes threaten to destroy the islands unique character. Twelve years in the making, One Big Home follows one carpenters journey to understand the trend toward giant houses.
