A Touchstone Theatre, PuSh Festival and Firehall Arts Centre Co-Production
Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers by Makambe K Simamba

When & Where January 20 & January 21 at 7:30, January 22 at 3:00 & 7:30 | Firehall Arts Centre, 280 East Cordova St

Portraying the afterlife of a Black teenager, Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers is a spiritual inquiry and a protest for Black life which goes beyond the headlines to examine the reality of injustice. The story portrays both a rich human life and the violence that took it away. What emerges is a prayer for the bereaved and a proclamation that Black Lives Matter.

To the edge of fame and back—that was Vivek Shraya’s trip, and in this theatrical memoir she tells all!

PuSh International Performing Arts Festival & The Dance Centre
La Goddam Voie Lactée

When & Where February 4 – 6 2022, 8pm| Scotiabank Dance Centre, Davie Street

Five women conduct a pagan mourning ritual in this emotive, wildly eccentric performance. From the rich colours, trance-like dance movements, animalistic utterances, and musical ferocity, something of deep public value emerges: a secular mass in which our discontents can be expressed. MAYDAY’s vision is dark, but ultimately celebratory: their act of reckoning is also one of self-imagination, and in that endeavour lie joy and hope.
