Iron Wedding is a collaborative and multi-disciplinary performance in which two artists/iron casters are united in a marriage ceremony made of iron. The Victorian inspired imagery and multi-cultural sourced performance is a celebration of iron, music, printmaking, fire, and love in a three-part performance including the wedding procession, the ring ceremony and the recessional. These three acts take place over the course of one hour.

The performance combines elements of theater site-specific installation and set design including backdrops and props with a printed surface, leather costumes with screen print and printing with fire. Additionally, The Iron Wedding also features a wedding cake cupola design and original music.
