First images in of the celebration are from one of the work shops. To come later: the preaching, the beach worship, bands, dancers and more.
Claire Ganz led a workshop on Flowers as prayer.
Tom Ruimerman did it again! Huge amounts of Italian food . Absolutely delicious. Jane made a beautiful platter of vegetables. Salads by Margaret and Joan and Emily..Chocolate Sauce and garlic bread by Pam. Set up help from the Chilmark-housed Landbank summer interns.
Some Bananagrams after supper. Great help breaking down too. Thank you Julie for a great spring season. See you all in September.
The Thursday music jam produced a string group that played at worship Sunday, June 10, 2018… Thank you, Emily, Irene, Jeff, Heidi, Pam and Charlotte!
But it’s not all strings. Rev. Charlotte played her Bb clarinet..It was a bit crowded in the back of the sanctuary..Emily couldn’t draw her bow out for a long note. You can’t even see her behind the post!All are welcome to come Thursday mornings to try out new songs and learn from each other.
There was a good turn out to see the popular Yard appearance at the June Neighborhood Convention at Chilmark Church. If possible, the performances and explanations were even more inspiring than ever.
Artistic Director, David White introduces the Yard and invites all to enjoy the 2018 Summer Season.The dancers introduce themselves with gestures representing their native homes.Above is a moment, sadly out of focus , in an introductory dance. And below, more of the same exercise.Below are a couple of photos of an improvisation involving maintaining contact .And the pictures of the final and excellent improvisation using words chosen from a dance AP by the audience, just were too poor to share. You really have to be there..the pictures can’t capture the spirit and vitality. Be sure to visit the Yard this summer especially the DANCE THE YARD performances in which these dancers appear. You can find listings at www.dancetheyard.org.
“Let the Lower Lights be Burning”…Thank you Rev. Charlotte Wright.
