    h2.lead Travel to 2040 and witness 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.

      p Caravan fantasy will also feature a virtual phantasmagoria of visual special effects and video projections. Showing on the Caravan’s main screen, (90ft X 40ft) with the new 20,000 lumens BARCO projector, will be a continuous cinematic panorama of originally designed video graphics, animations, and images, including a profusion of sky-river images simulating the flight paths of the Monarchs gliding upwards of 4000 ft above the Earth. Within the upper trusses and the lower decks, as the Aerialists cavort, the scenic conjuring of a palette of surprises, color, and mechanical transformations will be engineered into this show…enough to keep even the yet-to-be-born generations gurgling in expectant fascinations.

      
      p.pull-quote NOMADIC TEMPEST will be a gourmet feast for the eyes, ears, hearts and minds of all those drawn into the Caravan net of this theatrical, operatic, aesthetic cornucopia…beware this show will not only steal your heart, but make you want to run away with these circus gypsies!

      p 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!
