At On Being’s studios on Loring Park, Ragamala Dance creates an interactive experience inspired by the poetry of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore. Tagore’s engagement with nature was a continuous motif in his poetry, his music, and his painting. He envisioned nature as integral to human civilization.
Ranee Ramaswamy and the dancers of Ragamala Dance will present excerpts from “Sacred Earth,” a work that explores the interconnectedness between human emotions and the landscapes that shape them. The performance will integrate dance, ephemeral visual traditions, music, and poetry, and will also include audience participation and discussions on innovation within tradition.

When & Where
On Being is a social enterprise with a radio show at its heart.
On Being is a Peabody Award-winning public radio conversation and podcast, a Webby Award-winning website and online exploration, a publisher and public event convener. On Being opens up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? We explore these questions in their richness and complexity in 21st-century lives and endeavors. We pursue wisdom and moral imagination as much as knowledge; we esteem nuance and poetry as much as fact.
Home of the Civil Conversations Project, On Being offers an emergent approach to new conversation and relationship across the differences of our age. On Being’s listeners, readers, and online communities cross boundaries that separate them in the culture at large: generational, socioeconomic, political, religious. They report that On Being equips them to relate in fresh, new ways to different others, and emboldens them to engage in new kinds of service.
