Nomadic Tempest - A Climatopian Spectacle

Nomadic Tempest
The Nomadic Tempest, a travelling theatre company is a spectacle of acrobatics, music and magic on a tall ship called the Amara Zee. 

What started as the only theatre company caravan of gypsies, jugglers and musicians being pulled down the backroads of B.C. by Clydesdale horses in the 1970s has grown and evolved, travelling to more than 20 countries. Today, the 25-person company of actors, musicians and artists perform on a massive tall ship called the Amara Zee. This flat-bottomed replica of a Thames River barge sails into ports to entertain crowds.

Once the ship is tied to the dock at Gibsons Landing, on the Sunhsine Coast, the ship transforms the entire deck, mats and all the riggings to be part of the thematic production.
