CBC Vancouver is a proud returning sponsor of the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival -- a presentation of groundbreaking work in theatre, dance, music and various hybrid forms of performance. 

The festival, now in its 16th year, features acclaimed local, national and international artists from around the world. It takes place January 21 - February 9, 2020 at various venues across the Lower Mainland.

Highlights of the 2020 PuSh Festival include six world premieres from local artists and companies like the Electric Company Theatre, Robert Leveroos and City Opera Vancouver as well as a North American premiere from UK provocateur Ursula Martinez. Club PuSh, the festival's platform for the most edgy and experimental work, returns with performances from Pearle Harbour, Myles de Bastion and more. 

New for the 2020 season is the PuSh Scholars-in-Residence program. The free public talks invite festival artists as well as Indigenous and disabled artists and curators to ask questions about how performance can intervene in the age of crisis.
