Lotus All-Inclusive Package

Lotus World Music & Arts Festival
Downtown Bloomington, Indiana
Thursday, September 26 – Sunday, September 29

The discounted “all-inclusive package” provides a ticket to the Festival's Thursday concert, a weekend pass for access to the Friday and Saturday showcases, and a pin for admission to the Sunday concert.

Thursday, September 26 - This year’s opening concert features the remarkable Çudamaniensemble of musicians and dancers, based in the village of Pengosekan, Bali. Çudamani’s full gamelan orchestra (including metal gongs, xylophones, metallophones, drums, and bamboo flutes) accompanies dancers whose expressive, precise movements often mirror or answer the music. Performances bring to life tales of gods and heroes in Balinese myth and history. Everything about Çudamani – music, dance, highly decorated brass instruments, and the dancers’ elaborate costumes – provides a vivid look at ancient traditions. At intermission, a short film made by Jim Krause about the history of Lotus will be shown.

Friday & Saturday - A two-day wristband is your passport to all 15+ globe-spanning performances on Saturday night! Venues across downtown range from the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, to standing-room-only street tents, to churches where traditional music shines.

Sunday, September 29 - The 2019 Commemorative Pin gets you into the Sunday Closing Concert, the 26th Festival’s heartfelt wrap-up event celebrating the traditional music that inspired Lotus Dickey and other Old Time artists. First, Steam Machine celebrates old-time and bluegrass with some very fine playing and a sure feel for the soul of American roots music.

Next, Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project – which focuses on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax – Folklife treats old field recordings not as time capsules, but as heirloom seeds passed down from a bygone generation. Planting these seeds in modern soil, this versatile gathering of musicians has cultivated vibrant Sea Island spirituals, Creole calypsos, and stomp-down Appalachian dance tunes for contemporary listeners.

More festival information and artist details available at www.lotusfest.org.

This package provides you with a discount compared to the advance price of all the component parts and will only be available through Wednesday, September 25th.

Ryder Film Series

Ryder Film Series Presents The NY Dog Film Festival and a special screening of Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am
Sunday, September
at The Buskirk-Chumley Theater
114 E. Kirkwood

Stray dogs abroad, adventure dogs in sidecars, dogs winning prizes, dogs in prison, senior dogs, dogs who make you laugh, and dogs at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. The NY Dog Film Festival™ is coming to Bloomington on Sunday, Sept 22nd! A portion of every ticket benefits the Monroe County Humane Association. Well-mannered, well-dressed dogs who appreciate good films are invited to attend. (But if you plan on coming with your dog, please read the fine print below.)

The festival consists of two different 60-75 minute programs of documentary, animated, and narrative films and is curated by Tracie Hotchner, nationally acclaimed pet wellness advocate, author, and host of NPR show Dog Talk. These are not “Dogs Gone Wild” internet videos that have gone viral. Rather, they are collections of inspiring, educational, and amusing short films from around the world exploring the special relationship between wise dogs and their all-too-human companions.

There’s more to wag your tails about: as a special treat, we will also be screening the 1955 animated Disney film, Lady and the Tramp, the story of a pampered cocker spaniel named Lady, living in a charming Midwestern town, who finds herself on the loose and out on the street where she is befriended and protected by the tough stray mutt Tramp.

(Children 10 and under are free.)

Doors open 30 minutes before each screening.

Here’s our schedule:
2pm: Lady and the Tramp (1955) 1 hr, 15 min
4pm: Dog Fest Program 1 1 hr, 16 min
6pm: Dog Fest Program 2 1 hr, 13 min

Also presented by the Ryder on September 22 at the BCT:
8pm:  Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am A new film about the beloved writer.
An All-Day Pass will cover admission to all four films.

STAY TUNED FOR THE NY CAT FILM FESTIVAL OCT 20th at the BCT

Pass the pupcorn!  Well-mannered, well-dressed dogs who appreciate good films are welcome at the two programs of shorts and Lady and the Tramp. Dogs must be spayed/neutered and owners must show written proof of a rabies vaccination within the past year. Rabies tags are not sufficient documentation; paperwork from your vet is required. All dogs must be kept on a short leash (no retractable leashes) for the entire event. We reserve the right to ask owners to remove dogs with behavioral problems and the right to ask dogs to remove owners who are unable to follow the safety rules. Woof!
