MOSE : Cacao Dance - Live in PDX
Mose - Cacao Dance
Our Portland community converges to connect the heart, mind & body in an ecstatic dance inspired event, guided by organic electronic music produced & mixed by renowned sound alchemist Mose, supported by special musical guests throughout the evening as part of Mose's 2023 North American Cacao Dance Tour.
We will be opening the space with a contact dance class, a DJ set by PDX legend Sheena Medicina, and a cacao ceremony to open the heart & sensitize the body for this journey into sound. Mose will then inspire movement through the vibrations of music while Salt Spring local special guest musicians collaborate with Mose in the curation of a dance journey.

Mose is based in Guatemala where cacao ceremonies and ecstatic dance have had a major influence on his productions and DJ style. It is here that he founded regular cacao dances where members of the community have the opportunity to journey deep into dance while held in a ceremonial container, free of alcohol.
Beyond the multicultural rhythms and the steady hypnotic beat, Mose weaves ephemeral chanting of sacred songs and calls to love, kindness and compassion, often bringing in live musicians to create something improvisational connected with that particular place and time. He creates with the intention to set a foundation for self discovery and the cultivation of a present minded state which offers new insights and deeper clarity in ones purpose.
