Mark your calendar for an exciting 4-night spectacle coming to the Comox Valley, June 28th through July 1st.
The Caravan Stage Company is bringing Nomadic Tempest to town!
Co-presented by Project Watershed and Elevate, Nomadic Tempest is an intense, beautiful, gritty and timely post-apocalyptic rock opera about climate refugees in a future drowned world complete with aerials, projections and original score.
Audiences gather on the shore and experience soaring vocals, aerial artistry and large scenic elements backed by spectacular lighting and sound effects combined to create the visual and auditory feast that has enthralled audiences across North America and Europe.
This provocative and unique theatrical presentation is specifically performed in areas most impacted by rising sea levels and the realities of flooding – and forced migration – due to climate change.
This after-dark show is performed on a 90-foot replica tall ship that will be docked on the Courtenay River at the Old Fields Sawmill (Kus Kus Sum) site.
Comox Valley audiences will gather on site at 8 pm all 4 nights for pre-show concerts, food and beverage vendors and a unique perspective on the river, the estuary, the Valley and our place in it all.
All the funds raised support Project Watershed’s historic purchase and restoration of the Kus Kus Sum site.
Tickets are $25 ($10 for 14 and under) and available on line HERE NOW.

“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
