In 1824, a young, exiled Cuban poet stood on the shoulder of Niagara Falls and wrote a poem that strives to capture the wonder, joy, and strange sadness still felt by the tens of millions of visitors who make the pilgrimage to see this natural wonder every year.
The poet, only 20 years old at that time, was José María Heredia, and the poem, called simply “Niágara,” is a pan-American masterpiece that’s still celebrated in both Cuba and Canada today.
Almost 200 years of cultural connection between Canada and Cuba? That’s worth celebrating, and what better backdrop than the 2015 Pan Am Games? Heredia’s life and work take centre stage at Daniels Spectrum in “Niágara: A Pan-American Story,” a featured addition to the Panamania program. While many Panamania projects tackle the theme of water, there’s no denying that Niagara Falls, which plays spectacular host to almost 20% of the world’s fresh water, holds a special claim to fame.
