Introduction to Nomadic Tempest
A HERO WITH A 1001 VOICES IN A MYTHIC MIGRATION FOR ALL AGES
The Caravan Stage Company, founded in 1970, is launching a new show for its 47th season … a Fable created for audiences of all ages, from 10 to 100. It will feature the mythic saga of a band of Monarch Butterflies as a metaphor for refugee migrant characters struggling through their annual pilgrimage, journeying over a Land caked with consumptive delights, clamorous raptures and raging racism … a Planet engorged with many species rushing to stake their claim on a patch of paradise… The Land of SwallowWart!NOMADIC TEMPEST will showcase the spectacle of four aerial artists gyrating, contorting, dancing, and flying through the sky above the decks of the Amara Zee, the Caravan’s 100ft long theatre ship. Above and around these intrepid but fragile beauties, we shall see a commanding monster… Lord SwallowWart, a belching, grasping, bellowing, galloping alien Beast that came to the Planet as an invited guest and now rules the air, soil and water from its throne on top of the world … 40ft above the decks of the Amara Zee … smoking and swallowing all above and below! Roving about the earthlings on the shore we see a mysterious narrator/singer …Kanandra… who can foresee the Future but is cursed by SwallowWart so that no one will believe her prophecies … even though she can understand and speak the tongue of all animals on the Planet.

Catch Us If You Can!
The Amara Zee is currently docked in St. Petersburg, FL, where we are preparing for our newest production, NOMADIC TEMPEST. We worked to organize this tour for over a year and production is now well under way. We anticipated a grant award to cover our production costs. We did not receive what we expected. We know we can count on YOU to make this tour possible! Your generosity will provide:
- Groceries to feed the cast & crew
- Production materials: costumes, props, & set pieces
- Supplies for the ship: paint, tools, filters, etc...
- Travel Expenses for cast & crew
Your donation supports a passionate, dedicated group of artists. We aim to share this production & our empowering messages with people who may not otherwise be exposed to the arts, let alone this one-of-a-kind theatrical experience!
