VOLUNTEER FOR 2013 PUSH FESTIVAL SHOW: DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN?
The PuSh Festival is looking for volunteers to help mount an incredible show by Lyon-based directors/choreographers Martin Chaput and Martial Chazallon (Projet in situ) called Do You See What I Mean? to be presented as part of the 2013 Festival, January 25, 26, 27 and February 1, 2, 3. This show takes audience members on a 2.5 hour blindfolded tour of the city, and we need your help to pull it off!
Do you live in or between the west side of Chinatown, Cordova Street, and Yaletown?
Welcome the PuSh Festival into your home! Resident volunteers who are chosen to have their homes become a “stop” on the Do You See What I Mean? blindfolded tour, will have two preparation meetings in January with the artists of Projet in situ.
During the PuSh Festival, audience members will be guided individually through downtown Vancouver and will visit you during three afternoons.
You may choose any three dates between January 25, 26, 27 and February 1, 2, 3.
This project is open to all adults on a volunteer basis. No prior artistic experience is needed.
During each performance day, you would see approximately 7 pairs (audience member + guide) enter your home over the course of an afternoon (12:30pm – 6:30pm). During each drop in of 15-20 minutes, you would prepare a visit for them. This visit can be anything you want. At the first preparation meeting with the artists, you will share your ideas for your visit and they will work with you to create it. The second preparation meeting will be a “dress rehearsal.”

Do You See What I Mean? was presented at the FTA Festival in Montreal, in 2010. Click here to read about it.
“The idea is simple yet brilliant and it allows you to encounter the city differently: to listen, to feel, to love it again. What is the world like without our vision? The project by Chaput/Chazallon prefers to pose questions rather than offer neat answers. It’s better like that...” – Les Inrockuptibles
Do You See What I Mean? is presented with Terra Breads and Urban Crawl and supported by the British Columbia Arts Council, the Consulate General of France in Vancouver, Institut Francais, the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre, Access Gallery, and CNIB (the Canadian National Institute for the Blind).
