New play from award winning Métis artist comes to Vernon

Prophecy Fog on stage

Prophecy Fog will fill the Vernon stage this week.

The play is created and performed by Métis, Juno Award-winning artist, Jani Lauzon and explores relationships with the land, family, and sacred places.

It begins with Lauzon travelling to a once sacred place – Giant Rock in the Mojave Desert. Giant Rock has now become a place for tourists and UFO conspiracy theorists.

In the performance, Lauzon aims to “give voice to the very long memories of stones.”

It opens with the question: “Can a site still be sacred if it has been desecrated?”

The play is performed in the round and has been described as mind-expanding and intimate.

“The audience of just 50 people is seated in a circle around the performer with projections overhead helping set the scene,” says Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre artistic director Erin Kennedy. “It’s an immersive and meditative way to experience a story.”

Prophecy Fog happens this Thursday, show time at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30.
