PuSh Festiva presents Lucy McCormick in Triple Threat
Get ready for a radical take on the New Testament… Post-Popular Prodigy Lucy McCormick presents a trash-punk morality play made for the modern world. Lucy plays all the main roles in this subversive spin on the life of Jesus, which covers everything from the Immaculate Conception to the Resurrection, and she’s assisted by her Girl Squad dancers. Together, they work through the story using power ballads, dance routines, and performance art. With Triple Threat, Lucy attempts to reconnect with her own conscience by framing this most sacred of tales through her own modern-day reference points. Absurd, enthusiastic, transgressive and hilarious, this is revisionism at its best.
The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival (PuSh Festival) celebrates its milestone 15th annual edition, January 17 to February 3, 2019, at various venues across the Lower Mainland. Featuring 26 works from 24 companies from 13 countries — including six world premieres — this extraordinary showcase of visionary collaboration and risk-taking is a highlight of the city’s cultural calendar.
