Lela Aisha Jones and FlyGround present Native Portals

Lela Aisha Jones (LTA '15) and FlyGround present Native Portals is a two-part movement series that delves into historical experiences of lynching, contemplates nation love and deepens our understanding of reconciliation and healing through the ritual practices of marching, protesting, and witnessing. Lela Aisha Jones/FlyGround will perform excerpts from Lynching and Love (2012) and premiere Release Mourning Clearing (2016), featuring a tapestry of traditions rising from the experiences of diasporic blackness in dance, text, soundscapes, and live music. Saturday, April 23 at 8:00pm and Sunday, April 24 at 7:00pm at the International House Philadelphia (3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA) Click here to buy tickets.
