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
