PuSh is Vancouver’s mid-winter cultural event, taking place each January/February in theatres and venues across the city. The 18-day festival presents a program that aims to be emotionally honest and politically daring, with dance, music, theatre, multimedia and circus performances. Featuring 20 original works from twelve countries, the festival line-up is dedicated to risk-taking and dynamic interdisciplinary collaboration. The 2023 PuSh Festival includes six world premieres, one North American debut, six Canadian and two Western Canadian openings and one Vancouver premiere. In addition to its Canadian programming, PuSh will also present works from Zimbabwe, Belgium, South Africa, South Korea, France, Argentina, Bulgaria, India, Italy, United Kingdom, Finland, and the United States.
