Description

The Caravan returns to BC after a 30 year world tour aboard the Company's 90 foot Tall Ship, Amara Zee, a replica of a Thames River Sailing Barge bringing their original operatic spectacle, Nomadic Tempest to Victoria.

Gather at Enterprise Wharf Parking Lot #73 (Surface lot below Darcy's Pub) for a free, all-ages show performed on a 90-foot long Tall Ship. Nomadic Tempest is a mythical saga of monarch migrants—embodied by aerial artists—searching for refuge on a drowned planet.

The Caravan’s Tall Ship is transformed into a technologically innovative, contemporary theater. Audiences gather on the shore and experience original music, soaring vocals, aerial artistry and large scenic elements backed by spectacular lighting and sound effects. The production is a continuous cinematic panorama of originally designed video graphics, animations and images. Within the upper trusses and the lower decks, as the Aerialists cavort, a palette of surprises, colors, and mechanical transformations are engineered into this one-of-a-kind experimental rock opera. The 2017 tour premiered in St. Petersburg, FL., travelling the Gulf Coast, performing in New Orleans, LA. and Beaumont, TX. The Ship was transported through the Panama Canal to BC, where the Caravan has scheduled performances at Gibsons Landing 7/26-29 (In collaboration with Sea Cavalcade and the Gibsons Landing Jazz and Entertainment Society) , City of Vancouver Aug. 15 - Sept. 3 (Presented by Canada 150+) and Victoria (With special thanks to the City of Victoria, Downtown Victoria Business Association, The Greater Victoria Harbor Authority); the original Caravan home city.

Nomadic Tempest is an incredible assembly of talent, technique, multi-media, and variety. It is beauty, fantasy, technology, complexity, eye-, ear- and mind-filling. And, in the beauty and the power of the performance is a powerful, graphic, sobering portent for our environment. ~Dick Pierce, Professor, Eckerd College

Nomadic Tempest is all so wonderful to watch! You bring a unique and exceptional theatrical experience to our area, which we treasure. ~ Robin Gordon, Former Professor of Theatre, University of South Florida
