For three weeks every year in Vancouver, the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival presents live work that pushes disciplinary boundaries and notions of performance. Dance is tightly woven throughout the festival, a fact festival Associate Curator Joyce Rosario highlights in the print program guide. This year, dance includes three works from Montréal – Séquence 8 by Les 7 doigts de la main (seen above), So Blue by Louise Lecavalier, and Le Grand Continental by Sylvain Émard Danse – and two works from Vancouver – Time Machine by MACHiNENOiSY and The Fish Eyes Trilogy by actor/writer/Kathak dancer Anita Majumdar. The international presence at the festival includes Dark Matter by Kate McIntosh (New Zealand/Belgium), It’s Going to Get Worse and Worse and Worse, My Friend by Lisbeth Gruwez/Voetvolk (Belgium), and Le Cargo by Studios Kabako (Democratic Republic of the Congo). The PuSh Free Film Series also features documentaries about Mark Morris and Pina Bausch as well as a host of other live performances and installations.  

PuSh runs January 20-February 8. See the event schedule, here.
