With PuSh International Performing Arts Festival opening in just two weeks, the Festival is adapting to the ever changing COVID-19 landscape.
The health and safety of patrons is at the forefront for organizers and are making updates to programming where possible. In keeping with current provincial health mandates, all venues will be seated at a 50% capacity, proof of vaccination is required for entry and masks must be worn at all times.
Where possible, PuSh is enhancing its online content and making more shows available for online streaming. As well, this year’s Youth Assembly and various Industry Series events will now be held virtually. January 29th, Artist in Residence DBLSPK: ??? Pineapple Bun by Howard Dai will feature a hybrid public presentation with an online streaming option.
As always, the Festival line-up features some creative and unique presentations, unfortunately due to nature of some of these shows they are unable to go forward. The productions of The Café and Songs for a Lost Pod are both cancelled, but will presented in the future. As well the February 5th Closing Night Party has been cancelled, all other Club PuSh events will be seated cabaret-style.
