Congratulations to Kris Nelson

July 04, 2013

Kris Nelson, PuSh Festival’s Curatorial Advisor, has been appointed the new director of the Dublin Fringe Festival. Kris, who succeeds Róise Goan as she concludes five years at the multi-disciplinary arts festival, is the founding director of Antonym Productions, a Montreal-based organization that manages a range of artists working in theatre, dance, live art and music.

Kris has worked with the PuSh Festival in various capacities over the years, most recently as the Festival’s Curatorial Advisor. He was also the Co-Producer of PuShOFF, an industry event that ran alongside the PuSh Assembly.

We wish him all the best in his new role. In PuSh’s Artistic & Executive Director Norman Armour’s words, “This is great, great news! We have a great colleague, and now an ally and eye about Europe too.”
