The three-week festival presents mesmerizing program of radical theatre, innovative dance, and experimental music. PuSh’s line-up ignites meaningful discussions on the world around us.

The six world premiere performances will be presented by contemporary dance organization Company 605; boundary-breaking dance company MACHiNENOiSY; composer and musical director Joelysa Pankanea; Dora Award-winning dub poet and actor D’BI; the performers of Kimmortal & Immigrant Lessons; and Guatemalan performance artist Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa.

Almost half of the program — 11 performances — will be Canadian premieres, including a suite of three sound-based works from Japan by ASUNA, Marginal Consort, and Tetsuya Umeda; Dancenorth Australia featuring music from Indonesian band Senyawa; and a piece from Taiwanese choreographer Liu Kuan-Hsiang.

New for the 2019 season, Club PuSh — a platform for the festival’s most edgy and experimental work — will be located in multiple spaces across the city and home to Opening and Closing Night parties. The PuSh Film Series will present movies perfectly paired to the program, and PuSh Assembly will stimulate dialogue through free talks for the public and industry networking events.
