Nomadic Tempest - A Climatopian Spectacle
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.
This season, the Nomadic Tempest show is about a mythical band of monarch butterflies forced to migrate becuase of climate change. Aerial artists, actors and singers in brilliant colours cavort high above the audience in this unique experimental rock opera sung in many languages. Spectators will be amazed by what the troupe can accomplish on a 21-foot wide ship docked in a harbour. You'll be gaping in wonder at their antics.
