Repertoire

With each performance, The Vanaver Caravan aims to educate, entertain, and inspire our audiences. We draw from a vast repertoire of dances and music gathered around the world. Our shows fuse story-telling, cultural history,  traditional world and American folk music, with original choreography by Livia Vanaver and full orchestral accompaniment composed by Bill Vanaver.

Pastures of Plenty

Inspired by the “father of the American folk song revival,” Woody Guthrie, Pastures of Plenty transports the audience to America in the early 20th century; a time of union strikes, dust bowl ballads, and tales of vigilantes, gangsters and fallen migrants.
