PUSH physical theatre
Intense athleticism, gravity-defying acrobatics, and soulful artistry – award-winning PUSH Physical Theatre, the genre-defining masters of physical storytelling, express what it means to be human: the joy and sorrow, humor and tragedy, the big questions and the simple things.
PUSH’s repeated sold-out performances have led to projects such as choreographing the Pulitzer-nominated
cantata "Comala" which resulted in a Mexico and US tour. TruTV’s national series, Fake Off, in which PUSH
became the season finalist, elicited this from judge and Glee star Harry Shum, Jr.: “You guys are superhuman!”
Unparalleled performers bring the narratives of our lives to the stage with hope and optimism: The strength
of the human soul expressed by the power of the human body.
PUSH has a long history of creating arts education programming for K-12 and college students.Performances include selections of their work followed by an audience talk-back. Discussion topics includehuman relationships, social interaction, stereotypes, etc. Workshops introduce students to the movementarts and support curriculum areas such as physical science, character development and literacy.Watch a virtual performance at www.pushtheatre.org
