PROPHECY FOG
Vernon District & Performing Arts Centre Presents

PROPHECY FOG

Created and performed by Jani Lauzon
 Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Thu, Mar 23, 2023 At 7:30pm
Fri, Mar 24, 2023 At 7:30pm
Prophecy Fog 500 X 625

$30.00 All Seats

A new work by award-winning artist, Jani Lauzon, Prophecy Fog begins with a journey into the Mojave Desert in search of Giant Rock, armed with the question: can a site still be sacred if it has been desecrated?

We encounter a girl in the mountains of B.C with a pocket full of stones, the rainbow warrior’s prophecy, and a mysterious inscription that obscures our past.

“We come from the stars, we are star people.”

Prophecy Fog weaves together the performance skills of veteran raconteur Jani Lauzon and the expertise of Environmental Designer Melissa Joakim, along with Director Franco Boni to elicit a conscious remembering of ancient prophecies that speak to rock teachings, star beings and earth changes.

Duration: Approx. 75 mins

Age recommendations: 14+

Audience Advisory: Crystal Singing Bowls are activated during the play. The bowls are played for no longer than 1-2 minutes.

Please note that this is a general admission performance and patrons are seated both on chairs and on cushions on the floor. Patrons with mobility concerns are encouraged to select ‘chair’ seats when purchasing tickets online or contact the Ticket Seller Box Office to reserve their seating.

RAVEN
Vernon District & Performing Arts Centre Presents

RAVEN

By Still Hungry
Raven 500 X 625

$40.00 Adult
$37.00 Senior
$35.00 Student

RAVEN, charmingly honest and highly entertaining, confronts the complex topic of motherhood. Based on their own experiences as artists and mothers, the performers of the Berlin-based collective still hungry, examine the stigma surrounding the German concept "Rabenmutter" (raven mother) with courage, intelligence, and artistry. Thanks to creative support from the renowned British director Bryony Kimmings, they stage a striking, authentic world filled with stunning acrobatics, beautiful imagery, and honest humour.

With disarming directness and the unmistakable personality of the fearless circus moms, the performers bring a moving show to the stage, which challenges the status quo and invite us to question our preconceived notions of working mothers, women, and circus performers.

Warm-hearted, funny, smart, and accessible: Experience RAVEN, a powerful and refreshingly different piece of contemporary circus about motherhood.
