About this Dance Beyond presents: PORANGUÍ @ Judson Church
Dance Beyond, Ecstatic Dance NYC, and Dance Lab are pleased to host:
Porangu and Ashley Klein are in residence at The Judson Memorial Church in New York City.
Ashley Klein, a multiracial musician, healer, and educator who is a Porangu co-facilitator, will design a purposefully designed space for people to experience the therapeutic value of music and genuine expression. The Beauty Way Tour gives participants a chance to connect with themselves and their community while enjoying an evening of improvised global soul music, dance, and sound healing. Participants leave the event feeling more entire and transformed.
An opening ceremony and chance for the audience to raise their voices and sing together set the tone for the four-hour voyage via rhythm, music, and dance. Ashley’s voice direction and live visual projections will enhance Porangu’s prolonged live performance.
creating a voyage through the earth’s natural splendour and the web of life that is really memorable. As we go from the event and return to our larger community with the night’s medication, we have an integrating experience.
Diné (Navajo) teachings from Porangu & Ashley’s cherished Southwest served as the inspiration for the Beauty Way album and tour. Walking the Beauty Way is living in harmony and balance with how all life is developing. Together, as we travel the Beauty Way, we further bind ourselves to the earth’s surface. Beauty Way, Porangui’s most recent album, was made available on all streaming services on April 21, 2023.
Hozho naasha doo. May we all move with grace.
