Now underway at venues across Vancouver, the 2023 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival runs until February 5. Here are five shows we think you should not miss:

1Vancouver’s innovative Electric Company Theatre presents An Undeveloped Sound (Jan 30-Feb 4). Loosely inspired by Goethe’s Faust, it is about the eternal wager made between development and destruction.

4In Are we not drawn onward to new erA (Feb 1-4), this palindromic take on the climate crisis uses structure as a metaphor, employing repetition and reversal to symbolize the need for a worldwide undoing of our actions.
