Nomadic Tempest - a unique waterfront experience

Jul 7, 2017

Tickets are now available for the dockside theatre production 'Nomadic Tempest' performed aboard the tall ship, Amara Zee that will be moored in Gibsons Harbour July 26 - 29.

NOMADIC TEMPEST, one-of-a-kind experimental rock opera presented by Caravan Theatre Company, is performed aboard the 90 foot Tall Ship, Amara Zee, a replica of a Thames River Sailing Barge. Transforming the entire deck, masts and all the rigging into a technologically innovative, contemporary theater, Nomadic Tempest provides a cinematic panorama of originally designed video graphics, animations and images simulating the flight paths of the Monarchs gliding 4000 ft. above the Earth. Nomadic Tempest toured St. Petersburg, Florida; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Beaumont, Texas before sailing through the Panama Canal to Gibsons, British Columbia - its final destination and the Caravan Theatre Company's original home over 45 years ago.

NOMADIC TEMPEST is a mythical saga of a band of monarch butterflies; 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, each with their own tongue: Hunqeminem, Arabic, Mandarin and Spanish. Their song is sung in each of the above languages, and the original English lyrics are projected as subtitles during the show. Kanandra, the narrator/singer, can foresee the future, but is cursed by the SwallowWarts, so that no one believes her prophecies. She can understand and speak the tongue of all species on the Planet & finds herself last on Earth with the butterflies. Together, they combat the SwallowWarts, in order to protect and ultimately save the planet.

Welcome the Caravan Theatre team home, and enjoy this family-friendly event. Final performance July 29 will be followed by the Sea Cavalcade fireworks display.
