The Arts Report – Feb. 2nd 2011


PuSh Festival

We’re featuring our final previews today from the PuSh Festival going on til Feb 6. If you missed out on last week’s PuSh coverage , we have the podcast here!

Portraits in Motion
German artist Volker Gerling revolutionizes the flip book. Through nomadic journeying around Germany he captured random encounters with strangers in a series of portraits, presented in flip book style at PuSh–including his latest adventures in Vancouver.

He’ll be at Performance Works as part of Club Push on Feb 3rd. Tickets are $25 and can be bought here.

Good Gets Better & Looking for Love in the Hall of Mirrors

If you were at PuSh 2009 and saw David Barrow’s unusual animations, be ready to be wowed again. “Looking for Love in the Hall of Mirrors” is a titillating story about a man who ventures into the city in search of the love and infatuation that the urban landscape promises. All this is animated on an unusual medium: an overhead projector. Despite the grade school memories, David’s narratives are captivating and emotional yet with a good serving of irony. “Good Gets Better” is the new feature he’s bringing for this year’s festival.

This is also showing at Performance Works on Granville Island. Tickets range from $25. For more info and tickets, listen in and click here!
