Our WaterFire story is a creation myth—and our AH-HA moment—for WaterFire changed our lives, forever. This story begins with two friends: Eric Auger and myself, Joe Pari.
On a whim we made two stone gargoyle costumes, put them on and walked down to the banks of the newly uncovered rivers to discover this new thing called WaterFire. And there we sat quietly in the stillness, transfixed by the glow of the flames.
Miraculously, the music, the firelight in the night and the magic of the evening breathed life into those stone creatures. Without any preconceived notions or choreography, we were transformed and we became those creatures, as they, in turn, discovered the world for the very first time.
