The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival is seeking support to realize an ambitious suite of works for public spaces, which explore notions of public and private fiction. Collectively, entitled FICTION(S), the project consists of three interrelated pieces: DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN? (DYSWIM) (a 2.5 hour, blindfolded tour of Vancouver's Downtown), HUMAN LIBRARY (HL) (visitors check out a 'human book'), and SOMETIMES I THINK, I CAN SEE YOU (SITICSY) (writers muse, reflect and devise narratives of what they observe in pubic spaces and project their writing live for public viewing). The project furthers the Festival's interest in situating the performing arts within the public realm, encouraging new and innovative engagement with local communities, fostering groundbreaking partnerships, re-contextualizing iconic works, and enabling collaborative residencies between local and visiting artists. Fiction(s) will be presented as part of the 2013 PuSh Festival. Over 160 artists and community members will participate directly in creation of the project. Anticipated audience is 5,000-6,000.
