The Contest of the Winds

The Contest of the Winds
By Linz Kenyon, based on an Interior Salish legend
Directed by Rachel Peake
December 11th - January 4th

The Contest of the Winds is the story of Aunty Joes, a respected Interior Salish storyteller. Her grandson, Sonny Boy, not only delights in her stories, but also in the practice and diligence of following old traditions and ways. When the modern and hip Ava Grrl comes to visit with her urban entourage, she and Sonny Boy don't exactly see eye to eye. Aunty Joes attempts to show them how to respect one another's ways by telling them a legend of the cold North Wind and warm South Wind. These powers are locked in a battle to find balance amongst the seasons in order for the people of the land to survive and prosper. The Contest of the Winds is a story of epic proportions, a local Aboriginal tale come to life on the snowy winter fields of Caravan Farm Theatre, for the whole family to enjoy this holiday season.

PLEASE NOTE: The use of cameras and recording devices during the performance is strictly prohibited.

Special rate at Vernon Super 8 hotel for Caravan Winter show patrons Click here for more Information.
