PuSh Profiles – DK

November 13, 2012

PuSh Profiles is a new series where you can get to know the names and faces of the people that make this festival so great.

* Tell us what you do for PuSh in one or two sentences – or a haiku.

I am the Production Manager for PuSh which means I order all the tech stuff we need that the venues don’t already have.

* How long have you been involved with the PuSh Festival?

This will make my seventh year with PuSh.

* What is (one of) your favourite memory of PuSh?

Seeing the concept of Club PuSh come to fruition.

* Which PuSh shows/ experiences have stayed with you?

I loved White Cabin, it was an amazing experience to behold.  As was Castelucci’s Hey Girl.  Then of course there was all of the partying with the Polish.

* What are you looking forward to at this year’s festival?

I’ve always been a Hawksley Workman fan but I think I’m most excited to see King Lear and I’ve never really been all that into Shakespeare.

* Outside of PuSh what do you like to do with your time?

I totally dig the burlesque scene in this City there are events all of the place all year round and the annual Vancouver International Burlesque Festival in May has become the largest attended Burlesque Festival in the world.

* What does ‘crossing the line’ mean to you?

The first play I directed, back when I did such a thing, was Israel Horovitz’ The Line so it’s connotations to me are many.  Let’s go with this:  At the edge of one’s experiences are a set of limits to be learned and transcended.
