It’s a nice day for a green wedding

The Annual Rites of Spring: Procession to Save Our Gardens wended through the East Village and Lower East Side last Saturday. Above, at La Plaza Cultural de Armando Perez, at E. Ninth St. and Avenue C, the participants reenacted the mythic drama of the Birth, Marriage and Kidnapping of Gaia. In the staging, as Gaia was born, an opera singer sang, African drummers played and wildflower puppets danced. The wedding was then abruptly broken apart by kidnapers.
