Parent-Child at Divinity School

The second performance of the Parent-Child Duet was on Sunday morning in the Yale Divinity School courtyard. The spotty weather just held out, miraculously. Pairs of parents and children moved from the chapel steps in playful procession...

...then separated into 4 quadrants behind arched passage ways, as the captivated audience wrote their wishes in chalk, and wandered quietly and reverently to watch each intimate vignette, like a gallery of gently moving paintings. 

The dancers returned together, and inviting the audience to join, moved back up the hill to the water filled millstone, where everyone offered blessings.
