Unlike ANYTHING you’ll ever see – Caravan Stage Company’s FIRST SHOWS IN CANADA!
The Caravan Stage Company arrives in Gibsons Landing, July 26 – 29, to stage their latest production, Nomadic Tempest. Performed aboard the Amara Zee, The Caravan Stage Company’s 90 foot Tall Ship is a replica of a Thames River Sailing Barge. Embark on a mythical saga of a band of monarch butterflies as they are forced to migrate due to climate-change. The butterflies, embodied by four talented aerial artists, serve as a metaphor for today’s Climate Refugees. The Monarchs are from four global regions: Salish Sea, Syria, China and Mexico. Kanandra, the narrator/singer, can foresee the future, but is cursed by the SwallowWarts, the evil oil industry, so that no one believes her prophecies.
