JANUARY 20TH, 2010
Our favourite avant-garde performing arts festival is back to bring us wackiness and wonder before the Winter Games descend. Herewith, our pick of the PuSh Festival plays:
The Show Must Go On
In the new SFY Woodward's building, 20 Vancouver locals bring to life Parisian choreographer Jérôme Bel's signature work, which The New York Times called “sly, witty, joyous fun.”
Like the sell-out production of Frankenstein Edmonton's Catalyst Theatre staged two years ago, their magical and macabre portrait of Edgar Allan Poe promises to be an awe-inspiring spectacle.
The theatre transforms into a virtual world where audience members with game controllers have avatars that affect the action in this premiere piece from provocative Berlin company Rimini Protokoll.
The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival runs January 20 to February 6, 2010, for more information visit www.pushfestival.ca
