The Wedding of the Waters is an original performance piece produced by Friends of the Buffalo Story and in association with FENGARI Ensemble. It tells the story of the construction and the completion of the Erie Canal in ways never before imagined or conceived.
Featuring a culturally diverse cast of actors, dancers and musicians, The Wedding of the Waters will excite audiences about the history of Buffalo by connecting them to one of the places it was made.
The performance will happen outside; on and around The Ruins and Commerical Slip at Canalside.
The Wedding of the Waters runs each Monday night in August 2016, and is free with special thanks to the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation and the William Rupp Foundation for their support.
