"Is it a cruiser or a performance-art piece? It's both, Arts collective Red Dive leads an arts-and adventure tour of the Gowanus Canal."
"Scenic canal cruise and theatrical performance merge on this educational tour aboard an eco-pontoon boat. The voyage features audio tales, a trip through a 50-foot tunnel, and live performance events that take place on board, under bridges and on the banks of the newly reclaimed canal. The production is the brain child of arts collective Red Dive".
