PuSh International Performing Arts Festival


We are very excited to inform you that the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival is going to happen from Jan 16 to Feb 4 2018.

Attached you will find an info-sheet with information on all the shows that are accessible to the Deaf and hard of hearing arts lovers. We would appreciate it if you could share the info-sheet with your contacts, include the info in newsletters, share on Facebook, print it and hang it up in a visible place, or share in any way you think helpful.

As in previous years, we are working with Piper Delores to provide ASL interpretation for Endings (and the talk back after) on January 27. We will also have ASL-interpretation for the youth academy and panel discussion on inclusion.

We are also exited to announce a new initiative: We will provide captions for Inside/Out on January 21st. We also have an exciting show from Italy with English surtitles: MDLSX.

Each year we present several shows which are accessible to the Deaf and hard of hearing community because they are very visual. One of these shows is our children’s show It’s Dark Outside, which is absolutely beautiful and completely visual. There is no verbal component whatsoever and the music is only used to underscore.

For shows where additional information on the use of sound and music could be useful we reach out to the artists and create an introduction.

Please find more info about all these shows and more on the info-sheet ??attached.
As you can see, we also have great group booking rates, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in bringing a group.
