PuSh International Performing Arts Festival

As You Like It

When & Where February 4 at 7.30pm, February 5 at 2pm & 7.30pm, February 6 at 4pm | York Theatre, 639 Commercial Drive, Vancouver

Performer Cliff Cardinal

Reviewer John Jane

Cliff Cardinal, son of well-known Canadian actress Tantoo Cardinal, was born on the Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota. He is a member of the Lakota-Dene nation. As such, he has a legitimate bias with respect to land claims. Cardinal makes a point of disliking the Land Acknowledgment. It doesn't prevent him, however, from presenting the longest and most elaborate version that most people will ever hear. Full review

Guy Mintus Trio - A Gershwin Playground

When & Where November 24, 2021, at 7pm | The Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre, also Live Stream on Demand

Reviewer John Jane

Guy Mintus is an Israeli piano player extraordinaire. He is another artist returning from last year’s virtual Chutzpah Festival, this time with new band mates, Philippe Lemm on drums and Luke Sellick on double bass. While much of the evening’s repertoire is taken from his tribute to George Gershwin album, the trio also features a couple of original compositions and a jazz inflected interpretation of Chopin’s Nocturne.

Iris Bahr

When & Where November 23, 2021, at 7pm | The Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre, also Live Stream on Demand

Reviewer John Jane

Bahr kicks off her (surprisingly short) forty-five minute show as her alto ego, professional baby surrogate Rae Lynn complete with blonde mullet, strolling round off-stage chatting to members while staying in character. After disappearing briefly behind the stage curtain, she reappears in black jeans and black sweater – minus the mullet wig. Full review
