The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival is one of Vancouver’s signature events. Produced each January, the Festival expands the horizons of Vancouver artists and audiences with work that is visionary, genre-bending, multi-disciplined, startling and original.
The Festival showcases acclaimed international, Canadian and local artists and mixes them together with an alchemy that inspires audiences, rejuvenates artists, stimulates the industry and forges productive relationships around the globe. More than just shows, the Festival is a broker of international partnerships, a meeting place for creative minds, a showcase of Canada’s best and an incubator of brilliant new work.
The PuSh Industry Series brings together 200+ visionary arts workers to imagine possible futures through exchange that invites generative friction, collective reflection, creative response, and informed evolution.
The Series includes roundtable discussions, artist talks, studio visits, curated pitches, social events, and artist walks, alongside off-programming by Theatre Replacement and Company 605, Left of PuSh, and the Dance West Network.
For a third year, PuSh partners with Talking Stick Festival to host Indigenous delegates from Turtle Island and beyond for ceremony, feast, and weaving deeper connections within our communities.
Each registered delegate gets access to all Industry Series events, a discount code for 20% off all PuSh Festival programming, and free access to Club PuSh.
Get ready for an electrifying night at Club PuSh, brought to you by Talking Stick Festival! Immerse yourself in a captivating performance maelstrom where Indigenous traditions meet with contemporary artistry.
This night features performances from the Delbert Anderson Quartet, The Brush Arbor Gurlz, Maura García, Ataahua Papa, Javier Stell-Frésquez, Qacung, Sherryl Sewepagaham, and the Supernaturals Models.
This evening isn’t just an event; it’s a tribute to Indigenous culture, reimagined in a modern light that’s bound to ignite your senses. You won’t want to miss this journey.
