A man has just had a motorbike accident… An insomniac tries to get to sleep… A couple has their first kiss… A man stands on a balcony escaping the party that rages on behind him…
Remember when I told you something about this awesome festival that is currently taking place in Vancouver?
The PuSh Festival is what I am talking about (for those of you who missed the very interesting blogpost!). Well, I just took a walk through Gastown in this…typical Canadian weather and here’s what I discovered: Evidences for the actual happening of the event!
All along the Water Street, people were building up spotlights and other technical features that make you conjecture what mysteries might happen at night in this traditional street…
When strangers walk past you on the street, do you ever start imagining what they are thinking? Where they come from? Or what they are doing there at the very moment you glance upon them?
At night and in real time, moving from the pavement to illuminated windows, from balconies to café terraces, “La Marea” (the tide) presents nine different stories—intimate snapshots that bring the zero hundred block of Water Street in historic Gastown to life for the opening of the 2011 PuSh Festival. These fictional scenes are repeated over the course of the evening in shop windows and on street corners, where audience members can observe the characters’ inner thoughts through projected subtitles.
Now listen up!
Audience members may come and go as they please (it is for free!). Each of the nine scenes lasts ten minutes each and are repeated concurrently between 7pm and 9pm. Performance takes place outdoors, dress warmly.
The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival will be on until February 6, so why not just grab your umbrella and defy the rain for a great theatre night out!?
Let me know what you felt when seeing the performances or send me pictures!
