wheeled prayers

Rollergirls and people in wheelchairs wheeled around the New Haven Green fountain on June 28 as part of the closing ceremonies of the Arts & Ideas Festival. We carried some of the of the prayer ties that had been inscribed by members of the community over months of the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange's 613 Radical Acts of Prayer residency. Thousands more ties came in with dancers on bamboo walls. Jayne Bondage, Disco Nugget and Andy Chase in the dress rehearsal, below.
