What we’re up to now…
For the 50th season of the Caravan in 2020, we are creating and touring a new show! This new show is called…
VIRTUAL ROGUES is a story of love & loss in a prophetic forthcoming future “sci-fi” world of 2052…a reality without any concern for ethical or species governance. The Caravan uses a multidisciplinary content and style encompassing: cinematic scenes as narrative; experimental projection, music & sound design; special LED lighting effects., and aerial dance rigging elements. The show themes manifest the ubiquitous use of data collection and surveillance with a so-called liberating technology while threatening the potential extinction of organic species on the planet.
Success in creating effective AI, could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. Will we be infinitely helped by AI, or ignored by it and side-lined, or conceivably destroyed by It. It could take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever-increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and could be superseded. –Stephen Hawking, Physicist, 2017
The Amara Zee Re-fit
A big thanks to Shelter Island Marina & Boatyard for putting us up for the duration of our refit!
We are working like busy Canadian beavers on a refit of the Amara Zee, all with the aid of the BC Government’s Job Creation Partnership (JCP). This work started in April 2018 and is ongoing until March 1, 2020.
