The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival is on now until February 2nd, presenting groundbreaking work in the live performing arts.
The PuSh 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. 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.
As a part of the festival, Club PuSh is a less formal, late night, sub-set of events in less traditional spaces. Intimate and dynamic, Club PuSh features an amazing lineup of Marquee Acts alive with experimental spirit including Ryeberg Curated Video which will be showcased on Sunday.
When: Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 7:00pm
Where: Club Push at Performance Works – 1218 Cartwright St, Granville Island
What: Since 2009 ryeberg.com has been publishing online essays that take a very modern form, accentuated and punctuated by carefully selected online videos. These essays broach subjects as varied as literature, movies, Internet culture, celebrity, sex, sports, illness, self-image and death.
Ryeberg Live, a huge hit at Club PuSh last year, is what happens when ryeberg.com goes offline and on stage. Hosted by Ryeberg editor-in-chief Erik Rutherford, guest speakers give short talks, accompanied by their favourite YouTube videos. In this edition, speakers include award-winning authors Lee Henderson and Zsuzsi Gartner, artist Vjeko Sager and multimedia cool kid Sammy Chien.
