If you’re looking to keep the festival vibes going into the night, this is the place to be. Club PuSh is a spot where you can enjoy drinks, connect with our artists, and party with your fellow PuSh-goers. It’s also the venue for fantastic performances in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. We’re thrilled to provide a convivial and comfortable setting for our audiences to gather, and we hope to see you here!

Talking Stick

Feb 2, 9 pm – 1 am

This evening of genre-blending madness mashes the music of Indigenous ancestors with the breaks, cuts, and booming bass of contemporary dance grooves. It’s an excitingly eclectic mix of styles, honouring traditional Indigenous idioms while presenting them in a thoroughly modern context. Enjoy a diverse lineup of artists in a mellow environment, with visuals to complement the propulsive rhythms.
This will be a low-vision friendly evening, click here to listen to the audio-introduction for patrons who are blind or partially sighted, created by the artists.

The Black Arts Centre

Feb 3, 9 pm – 1 am

Owned and operated by young Black creatives, this Surrey-based organization provides a space for both creation and community gathering. Hybrid in its approach and eclectic in its programming, the Black Arts Centre hosts exhibitions, events, workshops and more, with a goal of fostering creativity in the underserved Black community. In their first collaboration with PuSh, the Black Arts Centre will host a night of dance, collaboration, and community! Identity as performance, the Black Arts Centre welcomes all to come as their very truest selves to center joy as we enter Black History Month. Activated by a DJ, the community will have the opportunity to come together to curate a playlist which reflects the diaspora and Black plurality and dance the night away!

Feb 4, 9 pm – 1 am

This venerable company, long-time collaborators with PuSh, plays a major role in the city’s artistic ecosystem. This season, they follow their co-presentation of Soliloquio with a cabaret featuring immigrant and queer artists of colour. Provocative and radically creative, this program features drag, music and performance art, all of it designed to provoke, to challenge and to help lay down the groundwork for resistance. Masks are encouraged.
