Event Details

PuSh International Performing Arts Festival (PuSh) returns to Vancouver from January 18 to February 4, 2024.

For two decades, PuSh Festival has been the Lower Mainland’s signature mid-winter cultural event, delivering radical, innovative, contemporary works of live art by acclaimed local, national, and international artists.

Featuring 17 original works from 15 countries—including four world premieres and seven Canadian debuts, the Festival lineup is dedicated to inspired risk-taking and dynamic interdisciplinary collaboration. PuSh’s 2024 Program showcases creative risk and the shifting of our paradigms of artistic form. The works presented in this year’s Festival make us feel more alive with personal accounts of resistance and acts of vulnerability and push us to examine our relationship to contemporary themes such as migration, displacement, labour, injustice, and artificial intelligence.

“PuSh expands our consciousness by bringing our bodies in proximity and creating space to think,” says PuSh’s Director of Programming, Gabrielle Martin, who has been curating the Festival since 2022. “It triggers creative and political stimulation through local-international encounters, and it fosters a transmission of knowledge unique to the ephemeral community of an international festival.”

In addition to a strong Canadian presence, PuSh will also present works from Mexico, Australia, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, India, the United Kingdom, Palestine, Romania, Madagascar, Haiti, China, Brazil, and the United States.

Check the PuSh Festival website for the complete line-up, including dates and times.
