What other festivals offer audiences a similar experience?

February 11, 2021

Canadian festivals that share this vision include Toronto’s Luminato Festival of Arts + Creativity and Montreal’s Festival TransAmériques. But PuSh also feels a close kinship with the European festivals that bring together visionary artists in theatre, dance, music, and the visual and electronic arts to rethink the whole idea of performance and reconsider the traditional boundaries between audiences and performers. PuSh has its finger on the pulse of this new international movement. Each midwinter, Vancouver audiences get an up-to-the-moment reading of the living heart of this seismic global shake-up, in what the Straight calls “an insanely creative bonfire” that places groundbreaking new work by Vancouver creators alongside the most exciting new work from elsewhere in Canada and the world.
