Join us to celebrate the 15th anniversary PuSh Festival at an opening party for the ages, featuring djs, dancing and pop-up performances by Vancouver’s Kimmortal, Immigrant Lessons, and The Darlings.

Queer Filipinx artist Kimmortal and art-fashion-dance collective Immigrant Lessons combine their respective media in performing selections from X Marks the Movement, a story-based show that plays with the concept of map-making in order to reframe narratives of home and diaspora. This exciting new collaboration incorporates music, art and dance directed by Kevin Fraser and Alyssa Amarshi, songs written and produced by Kimmortal and Experimental Visual Projection by Chimerik 似不像, in a collective act of resistance. The story explores what it means for its characters to be in relationship with each other as diasporic artists of colour on unceded Indigenous land. Militant and musically ingratiating, this is a performance designed to move the crowd and change the conversation
