Sent to me recently, via Fr. Z, I think. Anyway it is a classic example of many things. First, it is really bad liturgical design in the chancel. The back walls appear to be poured concrete, the floor bare concrete, the altar a strange shaped lump of concrete with a couple of holes in it, and the ambo made out of some sort of stone (or poured concrete to look like stone), with an overgrown and distracting planting off to the left (facing the altar), a crucifix hidden in the shadows, and a banner that seems an odd contrast to its surroundings. . . Then there are the dancers and their costumes. . . 'nough said there, don't want to get into too much trouble. Finally there is the dance. Why is it that David's impromptu dance before the Lord has become the script for modern liturgical ideas when an unbroken history of reverence is quickly discarded in favor of a circus atmosphere? Oh, well. . . at least it did not happen in a Lutheran church. . . as if this were any real consolation. . .
Nope, I must admit that I have never met a liturgical dance I liked. And still counting. . .
