PuSh Festival Looms

Kris Rothstein

Arts and culture lovers, it's a good time of year. PuSH festival goes on for more than two weeks and if you venture out you will see some of the most innovative and interesting theatre, dance, performance art, music and weird undefinable stuff. It's entertaining and challenging and totally not pretentious. It's one of the only times you might mistake Vancouver for New York.

I'm excited about So Percussion performing works by Steve Reich and David Lang. I'm also looking forward to seeing The Passion Project, one of two shows which reimagine the classic silent film, The Passion of Joan of Arc. If you want to know how they turn out check back here!

Buzz also surrounds Before Before, which promises to "pull the multi-player video game out of the virtual realm" and adapt it for a theatre setting. I don't know quite what to expect but whatever it is it will be worth seeing. The Show Must Go On seems to include a group of locals integreated into some kind of theatre/dance performance. Some of the cast are describing the rehearsals in the PuSH blog. It starts Wednesday and a bunch more stuff starts Thursday.
