PAPER CANOE PROJECTS
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, a rainbow warrior’s prophecy, and a mysterious inscription that obscures our past.
“We come from the stars, we are star people.”
Created and performed by Jani Lauzon and Directed by Franco Boni. Environmental Design by Melissa Joakim, Dramaturgy by Brian Quirt and Movement Consultation by Julia Aplin. Prophecy Fog is produced by Paper Canoe Projects with The Theatre Centre, in association with Nightswimming Theatre.
The work premiered at The Theatre Centre May 14-26, 2019. Initially developed through The Theatre Centre’s Tracy Wright Global Archive (with additional support by the Banff Playwrights Lab, Native Earth Performing Arts and Nightswimming Theatre). Available for touring.
PAPER CANOE PROJECTS was founded in 2013 to support the development and production of multidisciplinary projects in Theatre, Film and Music. Paper Canoe Projects seeks to explore the connection between body memory and creative expression in the development of new works.
