Malcolm Dalglish and the Ooolites Present
2019 Love Songs for a Lasting World: Picture Book
In Honor of Toby Strout
Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 7:00PM

Buskirk-Chumley Theater
114 E. Kirkwood Ave.
Bloomington, IN 47408


Malcolm Dalglish and the Ooolites join up with Jun Kuribayashi, of Hybridmotion Collective, to bring you Picture Book, this year’s Love Songs for a Lasting World show. Picture Book is a family show that celebrates the awe of the natural world with songs of birds, trees, mythical creatures and wild things. Expect settings of critter songs, Kentucky writer Wendell Berry’s nature poetry, and instructional hip-hop-erettas on the making of pie and an over-the-top peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Jun Kuribayashi, former dancer and Artistic Associate of Pilobolus Dance Theater, will premiere a new solo piece. Picture Book is a boldly optimistic feast of song and dance with soaring melodies, transcendent harmonies, and imaginative movement. Each year, Love Songs for a Lasting World brings a soulful, inventive, and sometimes zany swirl of song, dance, and pie; a celebration for all ages, with many new surprises as well as old favorites.

It’s become a Bloomington tradition, and the signature fundraiser for Middle Way House, an agency which empowers survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking by providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, a 24/7 help and crisis line, youth programs, advocacy, and more throughout six counties in southern Indiana. The show is expected to last two hours, including a brief intermission. And of course stick around for the apple pie, served fresh from Muddy Fork’s wood-fired oven from everywhere in the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.

Doors for this general admission event will open at 6:30pm. Discounted tickets are available for youth (18 & younger) and students of any age.
